Italian Love Cake, Cooks.com
I wanted to make Hubby a Valentine's Day dessert and thought I would try a new recipe. I used a heart pan and a smaller pan.
This is what it looked like when Hubby cut it. The other cakes when you Google this recipe look like there was a definition between where the cake ended and the cheese started...I think this looks cooler.
It was different. The Jury is still out on it.
But the Laddies of CCF LOVED IT
1 box of Chocolate Cake Mix (Plus the ingredients listed on the box)
2 lbs Ricotta Cheese
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Sugar
1 envelope of Dream Whip
1 (4 oz ) box of instant chocolate pudding
1.5 cups of Milk
You will make the Dream Whip topping per box directions under "Dream Cake- Fluffy Frosting"
**The real recipe calls for the pudding, 1 cup of milk and 1 container of whipped topping mixed together
Prepare cake mix as directed on box and pour into greased 9x13 pan. Mix Ricotta Cheese, eggs, vanilla and sugar. Pour on top of the cake batter-Do not mix. (I colored the cheese mix red for Valentine's Day) Bake at 325 for one hour. I had to cook a little longer because it was still raw. Cool and refrigerate overnight. Frost the next day.
