This cake is easy and cheesy and tastes just like a cannoli.
- Ready In:
- nonstick cooking spray
- 16 ounces ricotta cheese
- 16 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) box white cake mix, plus ingredients listed on package
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups mini chocolate chips
- 9x13 baking pan.
- Piping bag and large star tip.
- Large skewers.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, mix ricotta cheese, mascarpone cheese, vanilla extract and confectioners sugar until well combined and smooth. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Refrigerate until ready to use.
- Prepare cake according to package directions. Bake and let cool completely.
- Use the flat tip of a large skewer to poke holes into the cooled cake, the more holes the better. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the cake and let soak for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour. Pipe the cannoli icing into stars over the top of the cake, covering completely. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips over the top to finish.

I love cannolis, second only to Tiramisu. I make a cannoli roll cake and I am not a fan of sweetened condensed milk and using it this way would put my teeth on edge. Cannolis aren't overly sweet but the creamy crunchy texture is over the top. I think that I would use heavy cream with a bit of Gran Manier' (Orange liqueur'). I know that is more fat content but the taste is way better than all of that sugar. The white cake mix, use Dunkin Hienz and make the follow changes (up the eggs by 2 and use the whole egg, use cooled melted butter for the oil and whole milk for the water and add 2 tsp. REAL vanilla extract. Now bake that off and proceed. If you are dead set on your sweetened condensed milk try using 1/2 and adding some pineapple juice to it.1Replies 3
