With all the density, taste, and color that you want in a nut cake, this Walnut and Ricotta Cake is a sweet treat with a slightly savory flavor. Chopped walnuts add a delightful texture and flavor element to this cake made with ricotta cheese.

This walnut and ricotta cake was nothing short of a 5 star recipe. It had the density, taste, and even the color that I desire; all the while remained nice and moist. The walnut gave it a great extra flavor and a bit of a crunch that was much needed. I will be making this recipe again here very soon.
