ricotta cake recipe, Member francesbutler

this cake is like a pound cake, very dense. the ricotta cake that i make has you make the cake with the cake ingredients, and put it in a 9x13 pan, then mix the ricotta, eggs, vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. add it to the cake mix without stirring. bake at 350 for 1 hour and then let cool 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding, 1 cup milk and 1 container cool whip. mix alltogether and frost cake the ricotta mixture goes to the bottom of the pan and the cake goes to the top. it is more like a cheesecake and everyone raves about it.
