Ricotta Cake with Chocolate Chips

Ricotta cake with chocolate chips

When we was on holiday in Italy, we ate very delicious Cassata alla Siciliana cakes. This Ricotta Cake with Chocolate Chips has less marzipan than Italian Cassata but it is the same delicious.

First I bake the Sponge Cake with ground almond then I make the Ricotta Filling.
