Top Review by PatriotsGirl

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!
