Oh Yeah...these are a winner!! Also made mine into cupcakes and used choco-chips for the chocolate part of the frosting. So moist and delish. I've never made cake with ricotta cheese b/f, but have using sour cream. Same type of moist-ness. Not overwhelming sweet, just perfect!! Thanks for posting a keeper for my cake/cupcake cook-book. Made for Photo-Tag~

Fan-freaking-tastic! Made these as a "surprise" for DH and while DD was weirded out by how the ricotta looked, it turned out awesome! DD was desperate for cupcakes so we made them and lowered the time to 22 mins. They are soooo moist! We added sprinkles as a final touch and all of us say A+ and we'll be making it again!
