I'm rating it as looking devilishly delicious. Canola oil is very bad for you, I was wondering if I could swap it with coconut oil or avocado oil? Anyone try to substitute stevia for the sugar? Can't wait to make this this week.

This cake was just a little too moist and the ricotta mixture sank to the bottom. Weird.

This was very easy to make. I substituted Kahlua for the coffee and it was delicious! My whole family really likes this cake. Next time I will add some chocolate chips and walnuts to the cake batter.

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.

Thank you for the suggestions to use instead of the orange zest and orange juice. I can't wait to make this cake
