I've made this cake my entire life (being as my grandmother taught me!) and I just have a few suggestions. Try adding a few ounces of cream cheese (we use 4-5) into the cheese mixture. Also, we use Almond extract. My grandmother would use vanila as a substitute, but almond gives it a really nice flavor. Then, try topping it with cherry or blueberry pie filling. Yum yum. I'm eating some right now!

Absolutely delicious made with chocolate cake mix. I made one the day before yesterday and it was such a hit that I made another one to take to a potluck last night. It got rave reviews!

I have made this recipe before the same as written EXCEPT using (4) medium eggs and NO sugar in the ricotta mixture. I'm curious as to what the extra sugar/carbs does for the recipe? I don't think the sugar is needed at all.
