I really loved the infusion of flavor that came with this bundt cake recipe. It did not lack in flavor in any way and truly brought out the best of the bundt cake with the ricotta cheese. The cake had the proper density to it and was both sweet and savory. I cannot wait to make this 5 star recipes again.
