Adapted from A Good Bake by Melissa Weller and Carolynn Carreno, this chocolate chip ricotta cake is easily one of the best cakes I have ever made — and I have baked a lot of cakes in my day. Weller, a master baker and French Culinary Institute graduate, developed the cake for Sadelle’s, a brunch mecca in Soho, New York City. The addition of ricotta cheese gives the cake a rich flavor and an impossibly moist texture. The cake is also jam-packed with mini chocolate chips, making it a real crowdpleaser.

Adapted from Melissa Weller, this chocolate chip ricotta cake has a rich flavor and an impossibly moist texture.

Servings: 12
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 50 Minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour (preferably King Arthur), spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1⅔ cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1¼ cups mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Spray a 9- or 10-inch springform pan (see note) with nonstick cooking spray with flour, such as Baker's Joy or Pam with Flour. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and spray again.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or beaters, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. Add the eggs one at a time, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl between each addition. Beat in the vanilla (don't worry if the batter looks curdled). Add the ricotta cheese and mix on medium-low speed until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the dry ingredients in one addition. Mix on low speed until just combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer. Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the batter until they are evenly dispersed, making sure to scrape the very bottom of the bowl. (You'll notice that the ricotta cheese gives the batter a slightly grainy texture.)
  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and use an offset spatula to smooth and level out the top. Bake the cake for 55 to 65 minutes, until completely set and golden brown on top. (If the top starts to get too dark towards the end, cover the pan loosely with foil.) Place the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Run a thin knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake, if necessary, then remove the ring of the springform pan. Let the cake cool completely on the rack before cutting.
  5. Note: If you don't have a springform pan, a 9-inch square pan works well (a 9-inch round pan, however, is too small). If you'd like to be able to remove the cake from the square pan, you can line the pan with a parchment sling.
  6. Make-Ahead/Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The cake can be made 1 day ahead of time and stored in a cake dome at room temperature. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months; after the cake is completely cooled, wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or freezer wrap. Thaw overnight on the countertop before serving.

  • I have a habit of trying new recipes for potlucks and meals with friends, and I always look at your recipes first when I’m looking for ideas. I’ve never been disappointed, and my friends always want the recipes! I love the texture and flavor of this cake but am probably in the minority in feeling that the chocolate chips kind of overpowered that rich flavor of the cake. I’m thinking of making it with diced apple rather than chocolate chips, and maybe a little bit of cinnamon. Jenn, what do you think? Do I need to compensate for the moisture of the apple bits somehow?

    • Hi Kat, If you want to make a cake with apples, I highly recommend this one instead. It’s also got a moist, buttery texture. Hope you enjoy if you make it!

  • Hi.
    I used the 228 grams of flour and mine also cracked on the top. I also used King Arthur. The only thing I didn’t do is spoon it into a cup and level off, I weighed it into a bowl. Would that have made it crack? Bake and taste was rock solid and has become a family favorite! Thanks for the recipe.

    • Hi, Glad you like this! Regarding the crack, it sounds like you did everything right as weighing the flour will give you the best results. Because you know you used the right amount of flour, it may be that your oven runs a little hot. This causes the exterior of the cake to bake faster than the interior and can create those cracks. You may want to check your oven temp for accuracy. Here’s some guidance on how to do it.

      • Thanks Jenn.
        I used the Breville Smart Oven Air (but not on convection) thus it wasn’t a full sized oven. I am an altitude of 2800-2900 feet which I believe is still under the requirement for high altitude directions so I think I am good there (apologies for not mentioning that on the first go). I have been asked to make this cake for Tuesday so I will make it in my regular oven, checking the temp before I put the cake in and let you know if any issues surfaced. LOVE this recipe.

      • Hi Jenn,
        Made it again today. Oven temp is spot on. Weighed everything as I did the first time. Even dropped the temp by 5 degrees and it baked 45 min. This was made in a smaller convection oven w/out the convection being on within a two part oven. I have a photo I can post somewhere if you like. Either way, a little powdered sugar on top will hide the crack. Just curious if I should drop the temp by 25 for a smaller oven. Thanks!

  • This cake is incredible. I even made it with the help of my 4 year old and it still came out beautifully! We all agreed its the best cake we’ve ever eaten, its incredibly moist and also family friendly! My 4 kids liked that it tastes like a cake version of a chocolate chip cookie and the adults liked how rich and delicious it is. I plan on bringing it to future potlucks, gifting it with the lasagnas I make for my friends, and making it for our spaghetti dinner nights at home. So easy and the results are outrageous. Jenn, your recipes make it look like I’m a great baker and home cook. Thank you!

  • I made this cake today exactly as written with the 1 3/4 cup King Arthur flour. My cake looked exactly like the picture when taken out of the oven, it did take the full 65 minutes to cook. I tested with a long pick and it came out clean. But the center sunk as it cooled. I can’t figure this out. Maybe next time I will make it in a bundt pan since that has a hole in the center anyway! One question though, when you bake cakes do you use a regular oven or convection? I have both and the owners manual says to use either for cakes but to turn the temperature down 25 degrees from original recipe when using the convection. Thanks.

    • Hi Tammy, I’m sorry you had a bit of a problem with this! It sounds like you did everything right but if it sunk in the middle, it sounds like it was a touch underbaked. And I always develop and publish my recipes using the regular setting on my oven (because many people don’t have convection settings on their ovens), so I’d go with the regular/non-fan setting.

  • I made this today and it was excellent and very well received. I had to reduce the temperature as I was using a Breville Smart Oven Air Pro and so it was a smaller oven space. I reduced it by 10 degrees and covered it the last 10 minutes. Also, I used the 10″ Kuhn Rikon Push up pan instead of a springform. I will definitely make this again (and thanks for having metric option).

Also, I want to make this for the next day. Shouldn’t I put it in the fridge, if it has cheese in it? Wondering if it is more like a cheesecake… Merci, Jennifer

  • Hi Jenn. In the pictures portion of the recipe it says bake 50-55 minutes. In the written recipe section it says 55-65. Just wanted you to know. I just kept an eye on it around 45 min and it took a little over an hour to cook.

    I did have one issue. The top looked gorgeous without a crack in sight; until I loosely covered in foil as it was getting very brown. Do you think this caused the cracking? Was the foil, possibly, too tight?

This will be perfect for Thanksgiving dessert time, as several will be available! The recipe made 29 cupcakes. I was also careful in smoothing them out in the cups, to help to alleviate uneven cooking.

  • This has become my favorite cake in the world! I made in again this week for a special occasion and it turned out beautifully.. so moist and flavorful.. reminds me of cannoli filling in cake form. The first time I ever made it, I got a big crack and had trouble getting it baked evenly. The recipes from here are very precise and nothing is done by accident so make sure you follow instructions and evenly spread the batter with an offset spatula, and loosely cover with foil in the oven once it is to the desired brown color on top. For me this happens around 40-45 min despite the cake being pretty jiggly. My cake takes the full hour to bake.

  • Hi Jenn,
    I am about to make your delicious chocolate chip ricotta cake for the 4th time….each time the center has collapsed – even though I followed (the last attempt) your updated version of adding a few more tablespoons of flour. Question: you have the oven at 350 for 50 -55 minutes. I wondered if you think I should put the oven up to 375 and bake it for 45 minutes. Would this help the cake from collapsing a bit in the center……it is always so delicious but I was hoping it would ‘look’ a little better. Many thanks for all your fabulous recipes.

    • Hi Debbie, I’m glad you like the cake but sorry that you’ve had a problem with it collapsing in the center even with the additional flour. If it’s collapsing with the added flour, I suspect it’s underbaked. Instead of increasing the temperature, I would keep it at 350°F and just bake it for a few minutes longer. If the top starts getting too browned, gently lay a piece of foil on top of the pan for the last few minutes of baking. Hope that helps!

  • I cook almost exclusively from this site, as I am never disappointed with the result. I have made nearly every “treat” posted, and all have been a huge hit (the chocolate cream pie is now the birthday dessert). A few days ago I made this ricotta cake. My daughter was the first to try it out of the oven. I thought she would never stop raving. My son agreed and told me it was the best cake he’s ever eaten. I have Celiac disease, so wasn’t able to sample it. I see other reviewers have used GF flour, so will try that sometime. This is a very easy recipe to put together. I did use regular size chocolate chips and just chopped them a bit. Another hit!

  • Great recipe. Was very very close to a piece of cake from a Boston bakery in the North End. The one downside was that my cake was very dense. I typically bake bread and cookies, not cake. And this is the first time I used a stand mixer (borrowed my daughter’s Kitchen-Aid). I suspect I either over-mixed the batter, or was too vigorous folding in the chocolate chips. All ingredients were at room temperature. The quantities listed filled a single 9” x 5” x 3” loaf pan and I topped the cake with a cream cheese frosting. I also serve slices directly from the freezer; sooo good!

    • Hi Jana, the 9 x 13“ pan is not a perfect substitute size-wise for the springform. That said, I think you could get away with it. Bear in mind that the bake time will be a bit different so keep an eye on it. You won’t need the parchment paper – instead, I’d suggest cutting the cake into squares and serving it directly from the pan (but I would treat the pan with baking spray). Please LMK how it turns out!

  • Jenn, this recipe is sooo good! Thank you so much for sharing your secrets with us! I do have a question. I did everything exactly as written, including the King Arthur flour. The cake is great, but it did crack some on the top and sink in a little in the middle as it cooled. I am wondering if it is my oven, as I have had this problem before. Even though I didn’t use the convection option it seems to still cook that way.

  • This was completely yummy and moist. I used 3/4 cup canola oil instead of butter and it was still so very good. A winner I’ll make again!

  • Oh My Days! So good! soft, sweet, and delicious. I had ricotta on hand and wanted to see if I could make a cake out of it. I came across this blessed recipe and it didn’t disappoint. If you are wondering if you should make this cake I’m here to tell you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Great recipe 🙂

  • This is the best cake. It’s a sleeper. It doesn’t look all gooey with frosting so people are blown away with how satisfying it is. I’ve made it numerous times, and now as I’ve had to go gluten free, I use a gluten free flour. Either King Arthur Measure for Measure or Cup 4 Cup. The main thing with GF is don’t store it in the refrigerator. Leave it out. The household 2 legged mice will take care of it.

  • Delicious cake – but having the same issue that others reported – sunken/underbaked middle – but edges were overbaked. Is there a version of this receipe that could be 2/3 of all ingredients?

    • Hi Michael, I’m sorry this was underbaked. Do you recall if you printed the recipe right after I sent out the newsletter with it? If so, based on feedback like yours from other readers, I added a few more tablespoons of flour. If you try it again, I’d refer to the updated version. I’m sorry for any inconvenience!
