A deliciously indulgent cake, which originates from Italy. Layers of sponge are brushed with orange liqueur, filled with a chocolate-mixed peel ricotta and topped with a chocolate icing. Perfect for everyday snacking and special occasions.
Lovely flavors, the icing is especially good. I am not a fan of candied fruit so I used orange zest that had been microwaved with a tiny bit of confectioners sugar and orange juice (2 tsp zest, 1/2 tsp sugar 1 tsp juice). Many rave reviews from those served. - 22 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
DELICIOUS! - 12 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Unexpected company! Dessert emergency! Used frozen poundcake. Had leftover candied fruit from Xmas. No orange liqueur so used bourbon. Was delightful, anyhow. Wows all around and this one is a keeper. Next time, I will do it with homemade poundcake, the right way....it can only get better! - 01 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
