The origins of this popular cake and why it was given such an endearing name remain a mystery to this day. Perhaps it is because once you sink your teeth into a piece of “Italian Cake” it will literally be love at first bite.

Italian desserts are famous for being rich, flavorful and and this luscious cake is no exception. It combines the slightly sweet flavor and creamy texture of Ricotta with a moist marble cake. Despite the varied number of recipes available, the end result will be a beautiful creation of decadence; perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day.

Cake Ingredients:

1 Box of Fudge Marble Cake Mix
(Prepare cake and cake pan according to the directions on the box)

1 cup of Milk or Half and Half
1 (3.9 ounce) pkg. of Chocolate Instant Pudding
1 (8 ounce) Container of Non-Dairy Whipped Cream; thawed

2 pounds of Ricotta cheese
1 cup of Granulated sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla extract

Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2 inch or a heart-shaped pan.
