I love this cake. I crave it. After reading the reviews stating that the ricotta layer falls to the bottom of the cake, I decided to plan for it by using a bundt pan instead of a 9" x 13" pan and made half the ricotta mixture (and added almond extract to the cake mix as well as 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 almond extract to the ricotta mixture), spooning it all over the top of the cake mixture. Baked as directed in the recipe, inverted onto a plate after it had cooled a bit and then sifted powdered sugar over the top after it had cooled completely. It makes a gorgeous cake, 1/2 moist yellow cake on bottom and 1/2 delicious ricotta layer on top. Yum!

This is SO easy and SO delicious. The ricotta settles to the bottom, so don't be alarmed--that's what makes it so good! I get raves no matter where I take it. My husband likes it warm right out of the oven, but I prefer it cold. Try it, you won't be disappointed!!

Excellent! I like it so much that I've made it 3 times in the past month. The first time I only used half the ricotta mixture & thought it was great. Then I followed the recipe & it was incredible!! The 3rd time I added some fresh blueberries (put on top before baking). The blueberries made it look wierd, but once cut it looked good. I'm addicted! Thanks to other reviewers for the warning that the ricotta mixture falls to the bottom. I invert it on a platter after baking so the ricotta is on top. Yum!
