I found this recipe at allrecipes.com.  This is simple to
make, as it starts out with a cake mix.  The addition of
sweetend ricotta transforms a basic yellow cake into a
moist cake with a cheesecake layer.  Nice on a hot day.
Follow box directions to make batter for a yellow cake.
Pour into pan, but do NOT bake.

Combine:
2 lb whole ricotta (4 cups)
3/4 c sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Mix until smooth.
Pour evenly over batter.

Bake @ 350, 45 min- 1 hour.
It's done when a toothpick inserted in center
comes out clean.

Cool.  Keep refrigerated.
Dust with
confectioners sugar when serving.
Eat chilled.

NOTE: the ricotta layer sinks to the bottom.
Ricotta Cupcakes
These can be made as
cupcakes. Notice  how the
cheesecake layer sinks to
the bottom. The above
cake is inverted, thus the
cheesecake layer is on top.
