This is essentially the same cake that my husband's father used to make. He was Italian and made them for family and friends on a regular basis. It was absolutely wonderful and so easy to follow...
This was okay, but I didn't care for the ricotta filling. I think it would taste better with cream cheese or something less grainy.
Very authentic cake. Ricotta is the traditional cheese to use and adds a special flavour and texture that you do not achieve with cream cheese. I added some extra Italian Glace fruit - cherrie...
I loved this recipe! Very authentic. Everyone loved it at the Christmas party...even people who don't usually eat cake. I made my own pound cake as well. What a hit! Enjoy Italian Style...
