"The cake is better a day or two later. Wonderfully moist. I added some icing made of lemon juice and powder sugar and drizzled on top. It's a keeper."

"This cake was just too rich for us. I substituted Kahlua for the coffee in the ricotta mixture, so maybe that is what made it too rich. I will not be making this again."
