WOW!! This is so flavorful and very Italian. I used the yellow cake mix and followed the instructions to the letter except, I had a little too much ricotta, (using a 26oz container) so I increased the sugar by 1/4 cup. By the time I had dropped by spoonfulls the entire cake was covered so I simply spread the cheese mixture over the top and off to the oven it went. The ricotta still ended up at the bottom which was perfect! I can't wait to make this for all of my italian relatives. Thank you for such a unique and tasty cake!
This is a great recipe! I made this exactly as stated and it came out as a delicious and very delicate cake. I agree with other reviewers in that I would double the ricotta next time since we loved that layer at the bottom. I used part skim ricotta cheese to keep the fat content down. Next time I may try chocolate cake, or lemon which I think would be amazing! Chopped nuts would be a nice addition, or even a handful of mini chocolate chips. This is a very versatile recipe, love it! Thanks so much!
My entire family is in love with this simple cake! I followed the instructions except I used Egg Beaters in place of the eggs. It turned out perfect. I love the way that the cheese mixture goes to the bottom when it's cooked and makes that yummy layer of goodness. Thanks so very much for posting!!
