Island of Sifnos Honey Bread

2 1/2 lb Ricotta cheese, unsalted OR- unsalted Mizithra
2 tb Butter
1 pn Salt
1 ts Baking powder
10 Eggs
3 c Honey (try Sifnos honey)
1 c Sugar
4 ts Ground cinnamon

Mix the flour with necessary warm water to make dough like bread. Add the butter, salt, and baking powder. Knead and put aside.

Place in a bowl the ricotta cheese and the sugar and mix by hand. Add the honey and a handful of flour. Break and add the eggs and half the cinnamon, and mix well.

Butter a pan and with a rolling pin roll out the dough to the size of round pan letting the dough over the edges. Spread the mixture over the dough and bake in 350 degree preheated oven for about 30 minutes. When ready sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon. Plan the amount of dough so the whole bread will be about 2 inches in height. Cut in diamond sections.
