A cake that makes all happy: I’m sure that this ricotta, coconut and chocolate cake will win you over!

Very easy, fast and childproof: as you can see clicking HERE, my 5 years old Ludovica made it all by herself!

Ideal for a genuine breakfast or a homemade afternoon snack, this cake is soft and delicate and has the grate plus of being butter free!

Prepared according to the “muffin procedure” by mixing the dry ingredients in a bowl, the liquids in a second one and then only mixed together, this dessert also has the usefulness to require only a spatula!
