I'm glad to see that you’ve been able to print the recipe. The Cannoli Cake batter fills one 8" cake pan; the resulting cake is cut into 4 layers. It's a very dense cake and the layers are thin. The only leavening is the beaten egg whites, so the eggs should be at room temperature and the melted butter should be cooled to create the most volume.

Okay, I realize that I print the recipe from the description tab not the recipe tab. By the way, love this cake but 2 pans are required

"greased and floured 8-inch round cake pan." The directions are misleading. You need 2 cake pans, not the one indicated. Someone who didn't know this could have trouble.

    Beat eggs and sugar on medium speed in bowl with an electric mixer 5 minutes or until thick. Gently fold in flour and butter; pour into greased and floured 8-inch round cake pan. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 40 minutes or until cake feels firm when touched in center. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

    To make Ricotta Filling: Beat Ricotta cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium speed in bowl with electric mixer 3 minutes. Fold in whipped cream and chocolate chips.

  • 3

    To make Whipped Cream Frosting: Beat cream on high speed in bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar and vanilla.

  • 4

    Cut cake in half horizontally using sharp serrated knife. Cut each layer in half again horizontally. Place 1 layer on serving platter; spread with one-third Ricotta filling. Repeat procedure, ending with cake layer. No sooner than 6 hours before serving, frost sides and top of cake with all but 1 cup frosting. Decorate with remaining frosting, chopped chocolate and fruit. Refrigerate until serving time.


  • This recipe produces a very dense cake layer. The only leavening is the air incorporated into the eggs when beaten. For best results, eggs should be at room temperature before beating with sugar.
