Ingredients

reduced-fat ricotta cheese

200 g

egg(s)

2 medium

Pauls Mousse, Chocolate, Low Fat

248 g, (4x62g)

white self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

cocoa powder

55 g, (1/4 cup)

caster sugar

¼ cup(s), (55g)

skim milk

½ cup(s), (125ml)

icing sugar

1 tsp

oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180˚C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 20cm round cake tin with oil. Line base and side with baking paper. Place ricotta and eggs in a food processor and process until smooth. Add Chocolate Mousse and pulse until combined.
  2. Sift flour and cocoa into a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Fold ricotta mixture and milk, alternately, into flour mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared tin. Bake for 45–50 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool cake in tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool (centre will dip slightly on cooling). Slide cake onto a serving plate and dust with icing sugar to serve.

Notes

TIP: Fresh ricotta cheese is sold at the deli counter of most supermarkets and is best for baking. The smooth ricotta sold in tubs is better for spreading and making sauces.
