Ricotta Nutella Chocolate Frangelico Cheesecake

prep time: 15 mins cook time: 1-hour total time: 1 hour and 15 mins
This is a creamy Italian ricotta cake made with a swirl of Nutella and flavors of hazelnut liqueur made around Christmas time.

ingredients:

Crust:
2-1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup cold butter cut up
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon Marsala wine

For the filling:
14 oz.  Homemade fresh Ricotta or store-bought
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 shot of Frangelico or other hazelnut liqueur
1/2 cup Nutella

instructions:

In a large bowl mix the ingredients for the crust, I microwave the butter for 20 seconds, then add it to the dry ingredients. Mix this quickly not to over mix the dough.  I then use two pans that are fudge size tins to make two of these pans. Spread the dough around 1/2 thick on the bottom of greased pans and refrigerate for 30 minutes. You will use the remainder of this dough to crumble on top. Refrigerate that separately.
Mix the Ricotta and sugar with a fork.
 Add the chocolate chips and mix again and then evenly spread it on top of the crust. Spread with teaspoons of Nutella over this mixture. Add 1/2 a shot of Frangelico over each of the tops of the two tin mixtures.
 Take the remainder of the crust and crumble it with your hands letting the pieces fall over the filling. Press it down gently  Bake in a preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes at 320°. Serve it at room temperature with a real whipped cream topping or just plain.

  18. Interesting recipe. If one can't use Nuetella (nut allergies) would something else work?

  23. What size are the pans? 13x9x2, or something smaller?

    ReplyDelete
  24. These here were two small disposable fudge pans which using one would be a brownie size pan. 13x9 would be too thin. After you mix the dough you can decide whether you like it thick or thin we like thick, so using smaller pans makes this like a cassata cake. Two 8 inch rounds works, or even two squares.

  34. Just reading those ingredients is making me drool. We've always enjoyed Frangelico and if you add the ricotta plus the Nutella well you have the ideal dessert. Our entire family would dive into this beauty and wouldn't come up for air until it was gone. Wonderful dessert for the holidays.
