Ricotta And Chocolate Cake

Ricotta and chocolate cake recipe of 26-07-2010 [Updated on 31-07-2018]

This cake with ricotta and chocolate cream I prepared to celebrate the graduation of my little sister in law. The base is a light sponge cake wet with a little rum and for the filling I used a very delicate ricotta cream with the addition of cream and chocolate flakes. This cake is perfect to prepare as a birthday cake perhaps by making some more particular decoration than the one I did and if put in the freezer for an hour before serving it is ideal to prepare in summer. Well, if you try this recipe let me know, good week everyone :)
