This cannoli bundt cake is to die for! And super easy to make since you start with cake mix. The cake is so moist, made with ricotta and then topped with cannoli frosting and chocolate chips. A fun and tasty dessert to celebrate special occasions.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix with chocolate chips. Toss to coat chocolate chips. Next add eggs, milk, oil and ricotta cheese. Beat with a hand mixer until completely blended.
Generously coat bundt pan with baking spray (flour and oil) then pour cake batter into bundt pan.
Bake at 350˚for 30-35 minutes. Cook time varies by pan. When the top of the cake starts to firm up, insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake and when it comes out completely clean, remove the cake from oven.
Let cake cool completely. To speed up cooling, you can put the cake in the freezer for 30 minutes.
While cake is cooling, prepare the frosting by blending together ricotta cheese, cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt with a mixer.
Next, take the cool cake and place your cake plate on top of the bundt pan, face down. Gently flip the cake over onto the plate.
Shake powdered sugar onto the cake then scrap icing evenly over top. Finally, top with chocolate chips. Slice and enjoy!
Use Baker's Joy to coat your bundt pan. This is different than cooking spray. It contains both flour and oil and is the secret to getting your bundt cake out of the pan.Tossing the chocolate chips in the cake mix first will help them to "float" within the batter and prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake when baked.Be sure to squeeze extra liquid from ricotta cheese to prevent cake from becoming too moist and frosting from becoming too runny. You can use cheesecloth or just use clean hands. Squeeze then measure. Make sure you let the cake cool completely before adding the powdered sugar and frosting.
