More About This Recipe
Inspired by a sugar cookie and featuring ricotta and olive oil, this Italian sweet cake is about to become the best you’ve ever tasted. Ever. Ever.
Confession time: In my existence as a food blogger, I have probably written the words “this is the best recipe ever” more than fourteen hundred million times. There are a lot of really good recipes out there. Also, I may be prone to superlatives.
But none of that matters anymore. Because this is the best recipe ever.
I kid you not. When it comes to cake, I’m a picky chicken. Always looking for ways to upgrade box mixes, I often come away feeling a little blasé. No matter what you add, most mixes make a pretty standard cake that’s pretty good. It’s hard to change the texture or generally wow one’s face off.
Until, of course, one decided to add a pound of ricotta, a heaping glug of olive oil and the most incredible almond-kissed drizzle of icing to the top of this sugar cookie-inspired cake.
I am telling you. Run for the kitchen. Grab a bowl. Make this cookie cake. It will become your favorite cake of all time ever. Ever. Ever.
I mean ever.
