Preparation

Step 1

Preheat the oven according to the cake mix directions.

Coat a 9x13 inch pan with canola oil.

Prepare the cake batter according to the cake mix directions, pour into the prepared pan and set aside.

FILLING:
Combine the ricotta, mascarpone, eggs, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk until smooth. Gently pour the filling onto the cake pan of chocolate batter so the top is completely white. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean and the chocolate layer has risen to the top, about 40 minutes. Let the cake cool completely.

FROSTING:
Just before serving, blend together the mascarpone, milk, chocolate pudding mix and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth. Using an offset spatula, spread the frosting evenly over the cake and serve.
