    Trinkets's Note:

    I made this for my friend Lori's Mother's birthday dinner. It was on a Friday night after a very busy week. I made a pound cake and then dressed it up, jiffy quick, in an hour and refrigerated until dinner. Beautiful, easy, and homemade, very chocolaty but not too sweet. I am not a dessert maker so if I can do can anyone. The original recipe came from Ciro and Sal's restaurant in P'Town.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a microwavable bowl, melt the butter.
    2. 2
      Add the coffee and the chocolate chips and stir until melted and smooth. You might need to microwave the mixture a few short times to allow full melting of the chocolate chips.
    3. 3
      Once it's all melty and smooth, put the bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice so it can cool down and firm up.
    4. 4
      Stir every 10-15 minutes to keep it smooth as it firms.
    5. 5
      Then start on the filling: Mix the ricotta with the sugar, orange zest and grated chocolate.
    6. 6
      After the pound cake has cooled, slice it into three horizontal layers.
    7. 7
      Drizzle the Grand Marier over all the layers.
    8. 8
      Then spread half the filling on the bottom layer, top with the next cake layer and spread with the remaining filling.
    9. 9
      Then top with the third layer of cake and spread the frosting on top and all over.
    10. 10
      Refrigerate until dinner.
    11. 11
      Drizzle the Gand Marnier.
