Today when I came home from work was one of the rare occasions when the cake bug bit me, so I prepared this very simple beauty, which is not only easy to prepare, but also, in my humble opinion, one of the most beautiful, great tasting, easy to prepare cakes of all times, especially if you buy or pre-prep the sponge cake in advance.
Here I have used a comercial cake mix for the sponge cake. I usually make my own, but for me that was a bit too time consuming this evening, so I took this short cut 😦
I also baked two sponges because I like to do four layers for a more stunning presentation. This cake freezes very well, so after you take some of it to your friends next door, just freeze the rest in an airtight box until your sweet tooth comes calling again 🙂
Cut of the top and bottom of two sponge cake’s to make even surfaces. Cut each cake into two disc’s. Mix ricotta cheese with sugar, amaretto, a small amount of chocolate powder and mini chocolate chips. Soak all layers of the sponge cake liberally with amaretto. Spread some of the cheese and chocolate chip mixture evenly on all sponge cake layers, reserving some for the sides of the cake. Put all disc’s on top of each other. Spread the remaining cheese mixture on top and side of cake. Decorate with more chocolate chips. Chill for a few hours to set.
To serve, cut into big slices, over-eat 🙂
Bon Appetit ! Life is Good !
