Sometimes we feel we should give up making home-made cakes for the sake of our figures. Today we propose a really delicious and irresistible cake which appears to be very calorific but has no butter or oil. The fats have been left in the pantry; instead we use a lovely cow's milk ricotta which provides a wonderful lightness and crumbliness to the cake. Taste it and see for yourselves!

To make this recipe you should avail yourself of a food processor: we used the Thermomix, but you can use your own processor or even a simple electric hand whisk, whatever you prefer. First beat the eggs with the sugar. Then add the ricotta, flour, cocoa, baking powder, a pinch of salt and three tablespoons of Nutella. Beat once again until the mixture is smooth. Butter and lightly flour a cake tin, pour in the mixture and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes.
