  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Blend cake mix, 3 eggs, milk, and softened butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and beat until batter is smooth, about 4 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Beat remaining 2 eggs, ricotta cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until smooth. Pour evenly over cake batter in the pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  5. Chill cake in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If cake is very jiggly in the middle after 1 hour, reduce heat to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and continue to bake, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The directions for preparing the cake batter are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on box if using a different brand, substituting milk for water.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
