Ingredients
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix, plus the ingredients called for in the directions
  • Canola oil, for preparing the pan
  • Mascarpone-Ricotta Filling:
  • 28 ounces ricotta cheese (3 1/2 cups)
  • 4 ounces mascarpone (1/2 cup)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Cocoa-Mascarpone Frosting:
  • 10 ounces mascarpone (1 1/4 cups)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • One 3.9-ounce box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
Directions
  • Preheat the oven according to the cake mix directions. Coat a 9-by-13-inch pan with canola oil. Prepare the cake batter according to the cake mix directions, pour into the prepared pan and set aside.

  • To make the filling: Combine the ricotta, mascarpone, eggs, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk until smooth. Gently pour the filling onto the cake pan of chocolate batter so the top is completely white. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean and the chocolate layer has risen to the top, 50 to 60 minutes.. Let the cake cool completely.

  • To make the frosting: Just before serving, blend together the mascarpone, milk, chocolate pudding mix and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth. Using an offset spatula, spread the frosting evenly over the cake and serve.
