    Mysterygirl's Note:

    I'm posting this in response to a request on the boards. This is a different type of Italian dessert with a rich filling. I found it on a site called cooking with Patty.

      the taste is very great! the only problem is i don't have enough crust to divide into two parts, but it was my mistake because i halved the recipe :) so it's just a crust on the bottom and ricotta filling on the above. anyone who wants to make this cake, i recommend you not halve the recipe. first, you won't have enough crust; second, this cake is too delicious that you won't regret having more :D thanks for sharing, Mysterygirl!

      The taste is good. I don't know why but the cake is dry. And it was 60 minutes in the oven. I used Cachaca instead of grappa cause I didn't have. I used 1/2 cup of sugar in the filling cause I had sweetened chocolate chips.
