Fluffy cake with ricotta and chocolate with rum

If you have already tried ricotta and saffron cake then you already know what I'm talking about: Today I leave you the recipe for moist cake with ricotta and chocolate. I'm talking about one of the softest cakes I've ever done, no butter and yet extremely soft. It keeps a long time, but really long, just keep it after the third day in a frost bag tightly closed.

The moist cake with ricotta and chocolate is a change that I studied for the maniacs of dark chocolate: inside also it has chocolate chips and a light but persistent aroma of rum. Dark as sin and yummy for breakfast. But if you want to serve it as a dessert just serve it with a little whipped cream, mascarpone cream or vanilla ice cream. I don't want to convince you to prepare, But if I were you I'd be in the kitchen. If you love the fruity flavors, try the ricotta cake frosted lemon, Also perfect for the little ones, you can find in versionVIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel. For the cheese lovers, Prince one of the ingredients of the Sicilian and Sardinian pastry, I suggest you take a look at all myCAKES WITH CHEESE. Have a good day!

Hi Ada, I'll try to make it perhaps with a little rum because my daughter doesn't like alcohol in General.

But that good with ricotta… I haven't tasted the other version you mention in the post, but I think they're both very good! Great for breakfast or snack, accompanied by a good tea.
