FILLING: Mix ricotta cheese with sugar, flour, salt, vanilla essence, orange peel and egg yolks in a bowl, beating until thoroughly mixed. Stir in sultanas, candied orange peel, apricots and almonds. Spoon into pastry case, spreading out evenly with a rubber spatula. Bake at 160 ºC, towards bottom of oven, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until filling firms and crust turns a rich golden colour. Remove from oven and cool in pan. Release spring and slide off outer rim of pan. Cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve cake decorated around sides with sautéed almonds, chopped candied apricots and sultanas. TOTAL KILOJOULE COUNT: 22 425 kJ (5 340 Cal). A portion 2 800 kJ (670 Cal).
