Description

Fresh orange zest, rich ricotta cheese filling, decadent chocolate, and a splash of sweet wine make for the perfect ending to any Italian inspired entrée. Beating the eggs and sugar will keep this cake light and fluffy while the orange zest and chocolate drops will bring a refreshing and sweet tang to this unique cake. Bake for 45 minutes, cool, and frost with sweet and savory ricotta filling. In under an hour and half, you will have a cake that tastes as beautiful as it looks!
