• 2 pounds ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 (18 1/2 ounce) package cake mix with pudding
  • Powdered sugar


Mix ricotta cheese, sugar, and eggs. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour into greased and floured 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Carefully spoon ricotta mixture over batter. Bake at 350 degrees 60 to 65 minutes or until done. Cool on rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into squares. Makes 12 servings. Note: Yellow or lemon-flavored cake mix with pudding works best for this cake as you get the effect of ricotta layer separation in the bottom. More cakelike than a traditional cheesecake, but easy and good.
