Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cake

Tested & Perfected Recipes

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

Adapted from the beautiful new cookbook 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 family-pleaser.

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

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (preferably King Arthur)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2/3 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1-1/4 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. 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 50 to 60 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.

  • Addictive… can’t stop eating it! I experimented the third time making it and substituted a few tablespoons of lemon zest with white chocolate. Super delish!! (Didn’t quite have enough ricotta so I used some goat cheese).🤤

  • Well…so far, so good! Followed your recipe precisely, and my cake looks exactly like the picture of yours…I had no issue with the cake collapsing as others have mentioned, and it came out of the spring form pan easily. I used the King Arthur APF as you suggested and Galbani whole milk ricotta with double cream….if you’re going to indulge, then do it right! 😎
    Now…the cake! It is absolutely incredible! Just enough sweetness, amazingly moist and then…chocolate! For anyone deciding whether or not to make this cake, take every positive thing said in every review on here, and add them all together. The result would be THIS CAKE! All humor aside Jen…absolutely fantastic…my wife said it is “to die for” and has planned her dessert tonight around a piece of this cake…she may have mumbled something about Haagen Dazs vanilla with it…not quite sure as she was “tasting” your cake and making little unintelligible sounds while doing so.

  • I made this on Easter based on the recipe prior to modifications. I came right here when things were looking awry and saw all the comments and subsequent recipe change. Since we were already 45 minutes in adding extra flour was an option. Instead, we tented the cake with foil and kept cooking until about the 60-ish minute mark. There was only the slightest dip in the very center of the cake – not even noticeable when on a plate.

    SO DELICIOUS! ANOTHER WINNER!!

  • INSANELY MOIST AND DELICIOUS! Jenn, this is only the second ‘fan letter’ or review I have ever written in over 40 years on this Earth…my first was a review for your strawberry cake, which prompted me to buy your book based on the results! This cake was so moist, delicious, with the perfect balance of chocolate and vanilla…WOW. I served it for Easter to my VERY picky ‘foodie’ family and they went nuts over it. My aunt ditched her plan to give some to the neighbors and kept it for herself. This cake brought us such joy, especially since fewer people could travel this year. Every recipe I have made from your site and book has been a WINNER. THANK YOU!

      • Made this cake today, however I had printed the recipe off on 04/01/2021 at 10:01 am CDT. Well, maybe it was an April Fools Joke or an error? 😉 Today when I checked on the cake at 50 minutes I found it was “jiggly” in the middle however brown on the top. I covered the cake with non-sick foil and set the timer for another 6 minutes. A toothpick still came out a bit moist so I gave it another 3 1/2 minutes and while all of this was happening I was reading the reviews and noticed one person mentioned something about a correction. I then went back to the recipe and noticed the change in the amount of flour. Perhaps you could in some way note on the ingredients list that this has been updated for those who may have printed off the recipe prior to your update or please make a note in the comments. I love your recipes and I hope once this cake is cooled it will be “ok.” It smells wonderful ~ I am disappointed I was not aware of the update regarding the amount of flour from 1 2/3 to 1 3/4 cups. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and used KA all purpose flour, etc.
        thanks!

        • Hi Kathryn, I’m sorry about that! Every once in a while, I need to tweak a recipe based on reader feedback and haven’t figured out the best way to indicate that because if people have already printed the recipe, they wouldn’t see a note about an update. I think your best bet is to print the recipe right before you plan to make it. That said, I’m sorry about the mixup!

  • I just made this tonight and it was a huge hit with the family. In the future I’d like to make it in muffin form, do I need to change the temp and timing if I do so? If so, would there be a variation in timing for extra large, normal, and Mimi sized muffins?

    • So glad you enjoyed, Kia. I’d keep the temp the same but start checking for doneness around 20-25 min for normal muffins (mini would be 12-15 and large 30-35). I’d love to know how they turn out if you try them!

  • After reading the reviews I checked the cake a the 50 minute mark and it was indeed very jiggly. I baked it in the convection mode of my oven at 350 so that might have something to do with it. I baked it for an additional 12 minutes but upped the temp setting on the convection oven to 375 so it would actually bake at 350. That did the trick, the cake is fully cooked albeit a little more brown than golden on the top and hasn’t sunk in the middle. Also added some orange zest to the batter after reading the comments of a reviewer who asked if lemon zest would work instead of the chocolate chips. Chocolate and orange just seemed to be a win/win.

  • I absolutely love this cake. Like others, I needed to bake it almost 15 minutes longer. When it cooled it sank slightly in the middle, but only slightly.
    I was tempted to use almond extract rather than vanilla, but worried that one tablespoon would overpower the cake.
    Two questions please:
    What should the internal temperature of this cake be when it is ready?
    What do you think about almond extract rather than vanilla and would you use a full tablespoon?
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes. I’m a big fan and have purchased your cookbook not only for me, but as a gift for family and friends.

I baked it an additional 7 minutes because the center jiggled at 50 minutes. The flavor around the edges is wonderful. I’m not a great cook, but I am a pretty good baker and can’t figure out what happened. I’ve made many of your recipes and loved them. This is the first one that wasn’t a success.

      • What do think about substituting blueberries?

        • Hi Susan, I think the blueberries will add too much moisture to the cake – sorry!

  • Hi,
    This sounds absolutely delicious, and I can’t wait to try it. Maybe perfect for Easter!
    Just a little question… will you be posting the recipe with metric amounts for those of us in Europe?
    Thanks,
    Maureen (Ireland)

      • Hi Jenn, thanks for the metric conversion. I have made this cake twice now – firstly with the original recipe’s flour measurement and then with the increased flour. It was delicious both times, though I preferred it the first time as it was more moist. Could you remind me how much flour you originally specified in your recipe, please? Thanks.

        • So glad you enjoyed! The original measurement was 1-2/3 cups – it’s a difference of just two tablespoons.

  • Hi. Looks so good! Do you think I can substitute lactose free plain or Greek yogurt for the ricotta? As I have a low tolerance for dairy I wanted to make sure. By the way I have made of your recipes and they are all delicious! Thx

    • Unfortunately, I don’t think that would work here — sorry!

  • Good morning. Sounds good. Is there a possibility of making this into cupcakes?

    • Sure — cupcakes will work here. I’d start checking them for doneness at 20 to 25 minutes. Please LMK how they turn out if you make them as cupcakes!

  • Can you do this cake in a regular cake pan?

    • Hi J, I think a 9-inch round pan would be too small, but a 9-inch square pan should work. If you want to be able to remove the cake from the pan to serve it you could line it with parchment like in this recipe. How that helps and that you enjoy!

      • Jenn, you’re correct, a 9-inch round pan is too small! I made that mistake and it spilled over, a lot, but I just placed a sheet pan under it and kept baking, adding an extra 10 minutes. What it did create, however, was even more yummy edges – albeit, it wasn’t very pretty. I also substituted the same amount of sour cream for the ricotta because that’s all I had, and added an extra 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and went with it. It turned out delicious!! And although my husband initially wanted it to include icing, he agreed (after the second piece) that it just wasn’t necessary and was perfect the way it was! I do want to try using the ricotta though but will definitely adjust the pan size next time! This one’s another keeper, as are all your recipes! Thank you!

  • Could I do this is a Bundt pan?

    • I don’t recommend it, Gillian, as I think it may stick. The original recipe is baked in a pullman loaf pan, so you might try that.
