This is a great cake for a crowd. Because it is so rich it serves a lot of people, and there won't be any leftover if you are serving a crowd. My family loves this cake and I always make this when we are having parties.

Oh my goodness... there is a lot of yumminess in this cake. It's cool and creamy but rich at the same time. The ricotta mixture that bakes on top of this cake really makes this special. It changes the entire texture of the cake, making it almost like a less dense cheesecake. Light and fluffy, the pudding topping is tasty and not as rich as traditional frosting. The cake is rich so a lighter topping is perfect. We know the title makes you think of Valentine's Day, but this is the perfect summer cool dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
