Recipe by KelBel

This is a great, moist cake. Perfect as a base for strawberries or raspberries. Makes a square pan or 6 Texas Sized Muffins, perfect for a small family or couple.

Top Review by Shelby Jo

I made this into the muffins instead of the cake. It was alright. It just didn't do much for me. I made it because I had some ricotta left over from another recipe that I needed to use up. I had it plain, I didn't top it with anything, maybe some topping would have helped. Sorry!
