Delicious Tasting Italian LOVE Cake Recipe

In honor of the upcoming Valentines Day holiday, I thought I would post a recipe of one of my husbands favorite homemade cakes. This recipe was given to me by my MIL who used to make this cake for her husband and children all the time. This recipe has been in my husbands family for years and its really simple to make and delicious. If you like moist cakes, give this recipe a try. For the instant pudding mix, we like to use chocolate flavored ones since we are chocolate-holics here!

Italian Love Cake Recipe

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
2 lbs. ricotta cheese
3/4 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix as directed. Pour into greased and flour cake pan. Mix ricotta, sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Pour cheese mixture on top of cake batter. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Let cool before frosting.

Frosting Recipe

1 small box instant pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 (8 ounce) container cool whip

Mix the above ingredients together and then spread onto cooled cake.
