I love cakes, especially ones that provide such an outstanding taste as this one. It was nice and chocolatey and the ricotta cheese really accented the chocolate well. I added some additional chocolate pieces to make it more rich tasting. This 5 star ricotta cheese and chocolate chip cake has already been made up again for today.
