Italian Love Cake

Oh Beware, beware of this cake. It is outrageously delicious. I found this little treasure on Cast Sugar, and I am so glad I decided to try it out. I shared it generously with friends and neighbors and all who tasted wanted more, more, more.
Hubby was even impressed and he's not a big cake fan. The best part about this cake is that it's a snap to make. So quick and easy, yet so impressive. Save this one in your files!

Italian Love Cake
1 box marble cake mix
1 large container (~2 lb.) ricotta cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding
1 c. milk
1 container Cool Whip

Prepare marble cake mix according to directions, and pour into a (greased and floured) 9X13 pan.
Mix eggs, cheese, sugar, vanilla and pour over cake mix. Bake 1 hour at 350 F. Cool cake-completely!
Mix pudding mix with 1 cup milk. Beat 3 minutes. Add Cool Whip and spread over cake. Refrigerate cake.

You can make this cake the day before you need it and let it sit overnight in the fridge. It gets nicely set up and chilled this way.
