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!

Divine dessert!!! I love finding smaller recipes to cook for 1 or 2, and this one is going into regular rotation! I also used the Jiffy cake mix, it's always been a foavorite of ours. Served with strawberries and a dollop of whipped topping. MMMMMM!

A very nice cake, & easy to make, too! I followed the directions for the cake, & topped it off with sliced fresh strawberries AND a drizzle of chocolate fudge! A great recipe, & thanks for sharing!
