Italian Love Cake

Here's a great recipe for Valentine's day. In fact that's how I found it. I was looking for great desert recipes for a valentines day dinner. It's especially wonderful if you have a heart cake pan!

You will need

  • 1 cake mix
  • 2 pints ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 pkg 3.9 oz chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 container 12 oz whipped topping

  1. Prepare cake pan and mix as directed on the box (you will need additional ingredients shown on the box). Then pour prepared mix in the pan.
  2. In a bowl combine ricotta cheese, sugar and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly and pour over cake batter. Then take a knife and swirl both mixes together.
  3. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
  4. Meanwhile, combine instant chocolate pudding mix with whipped topping and beat until smooth.
  5. Chill until the cake has cooled. Then frost the cake.

My favorite way to prepare this cake is with two heart cake pans, then I stacked them and frosted the outside, and placed fresh raspberries on top. It's pretty yummy.
