Amp Up The Silkiness Of Boxed Cake Using Ricotta Cheese
The best cakes are super moist and tender, and ricotta cheese is one way to ensure that your boxed cake achieves that texture without overpowering its flavor.
The ricotta will also help the cake stay moist and fresh-tasting for days after you make it. Further, the subtle milky flavor of ricotta will give the cake a bit of a richer taste.
To incorporate ricotta, follow the instructions on a boxed cake mix as normal. Then, simply add ½ cup of full-fat ricotta cheese when the wet ingredients are called for.
