DIRECTIONS

  • In a microwavable bowl, melt the butter.
  • Add the coffee and the chocolate chips and stir until melted and smooth. You might need to microwave the mixture a few short times to allow full melting of the chocolate chips.
  • Once it's all melty and smooth, put the bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice so it can cool down and firm up.
  • Stir every 10-15 minutes to keep it smooth as it firms.
  • Then start on the filling: Mix the ricotta with the sugar, orange zest and grated chocolate.
  • After the pound cake has cooled, slice it into three horizontal layers.
  • Drizzle the Grand Marier over all the layers.
  • Then spread half the filling on the bottom layer, top with the next cake layer and spread with the remaining filling.
  • Then top with the third layer of cake and spread the frosting on top and all over.
  • Refrigerate until dinner.
  • Drizzle the Gand Marnier.
