Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cake is one of those recipes that you think “how can this be good in this combination of ingredients”. I never thought putting Ricotta Cheese in a cake would be any good. Boy was I wrong!
I had recently made a lasagna for dinner and had purchased a larger container of Ricotta cheese at one of our box stores. I hate to waste anything and needed a way to use this cheese up. Talking to my sister, she told me about this cake that I might want to try.
Before I put the chocolate chips in the batter, I toss the chips with a tablespoon of flour. The flour will keep the chips from falling to the bottom of the cake. The chips will be more even through out the entire cake. A chip in every bite!
The end result was a moist and delicious cake full of chips and flavor.
Frugal Cooking Tips:
- Ricotta cheese comes in a 16 oz container locally. I either double up this recipe to try and use all the cheese or I make one batch of this recipe and use the remaining cheese to make a lasagna or stuffed shells. Never let anything go to waste if you can use it first.
- Do not make recipes on a whim. Plan out what you want to cook based on supplies on hand and what is on sale.
- Always have a purchase price for items you use on a regular basis. This is the best price possible and your stock up price.
