Amazingly Easy Ricotta Cheese-filled Bunt Cake

Post by StarryNightDave » Sun Apr 19, 2009 5:01 pm

My father made this for Easter. He got the recipe from my Sister. But, he's in his mid 70s and doesn't pay attention to details like he used to. He didn't use a bunt pan. Instead, he used a single disposable aluminum foil cake pan, so it was still uncooked after being in the oven for a full hour. But, he didn't know that and tried to follow the directions which say to flip the bunt cake upside down to get it out of the pan. Well, it fell all over the plate and he could see it was not done yet.

So - he threw it all back into the single non-bunt pan and put it back for another 20 minutes. It turned out fantastic anyway! We were all fighting over who would get to keep some after the dinner was over. Instead of treating it like a cake, we thought it was some kind of bread/cake/pudding thing that tasted wonderful.

Like I said, it is amazingly simple.

Take 1 Duncan Heinz Yellow Cake Mix and make it ALMOST according to the instructions. The one you want calls for 3 eggs, 1 and 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil. Just use 2 eggs and make the batter as instructed.

Pour the batter into a large greased bunt pan.

Then . . .

Take 2 cups (one 15 oz. container) of whole milk Ricotta cheese. Add 1 egg, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tsp Almond extract. Stir very well and pour this over the cake batter in the bunt pan.

Bake for 1 hour at 350, or until done.

Good, cheap, quick, Yum!

You know - I'm half tempted to make the same mistake my Dad made - on purpose. His version came out just wonderful as if it was some kind of bread pudding. Following the recipe makes a traditional bunt cake with the tunnel of filling through the middle. It's great, but what my Dad made was really unique.

Does this mean:

instead of 3 eggs, 1 and 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil
just use 2 eggs ?

I wonder how it is if you use sausage meat or boudin filling instead of the riccotta cheese?

No - just leave out one egg because it is used in the filling. And also leave out the meat from the previous post. :shakehead:

Well,

I just made this again. But, I tried it using a Pillsbury Butter Cake mix instead of the one above. It's in the oven right now. Can't wait!
