Description

A delicious, super easy version of sweet ricotta pie which is traditionally served on Easter in many Italian-American families.

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18.25 Oz. Box) Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 pounds Ricotta Cheese
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 13 x 9 inch pan.

Mix cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter into prepared pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix together ricotta, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Pour this mixture on top of the cake batter in the pan. Spread evenly. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Let cool in the pan. Cut into squares. This may be served directly from the pan. I cut it into squares and put them in cupcake cups and place them in a pretty dish. You can cover these with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

Note: you will see that the ricotta will settle to the bottom with the cake on top during the cooking process.

made this tongiht. It is wonderful! a real keeper of a recipe… I think it would be really good with fresh strawberries on top instead of the powdered sugar.
