Sunday Dinner at the Grover Hotel: Lazy Chocolate Orange Cannoli Cake


You can read the original not-so-lazy version of the recipe here.

However, if you're short on time and just want a really good, moist chocolate cake with a little something extra, follow my version.

Beat together these wet ingredients:

1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil

3 eggs

1/3 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup ricotta cheese (While not exactly the same, cottage cheese can be substituted for ricotta.)

You could also add a tablespoon of brewed coffee. I left it out because my son doesn't like coffee.

Once these ingredients are well-blended, add in a box of devil's food cake mix. Blend well. Fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. 

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

Cool the cake and frost or don't.

"Ornery was kinda irritated with me when I drank the first batch of wet ingredients. They was kinda lackin' something until I added a bottle of Cuzzin Hildy-Bob and Virgil-Joe's corn squeezins."
