Tasty Tuesday Italian Stud Cake!

For today's tasty Tuesday, Donna has sent me this recipe for Italian Stud Cake!

Italian Stud Cake (aka Italian Love Cake)


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 2 pints part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Pour batter into 9 x 13 x 2 inch greased baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Combine ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Blend well. Spread mixture evenly over the top of the cake batter.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 75 minutes if using a glass baking dish, 90 minutes if using a metal pan.
  4. Blend pudding mix and milk until thickened. Blend in whipped topping. Spread over cooled cake.


  1. That cake sounds yummy licious. I like baking and new recipes are always fun.

    That hunk is yummy too. I mean the shower, the long hair, the buns, mm mm.

  2. That is a very interesting cake recipe!! My oven has not worked right for over a year, or I'd try it! I don't bake a lot, as you could probably guess--I used to, when I had a giant wood stove, but I just don't bake bread or pies anymore.

    Now, if Marco wanted something baked, I'd get my stove fixed!!!

  3. this recipe sounds wonderful. my daughter is 17 today (see i am only getting older & this is proof). i showed her the & she wants me 2 make it 4 her today. so thank u, donna, 4 giving her her birthday cake.

    i will take the men 4 all the hell that she has put me through 4 the past 17 years. i need something 2 put a smile on my face today.

  4. Yeah, too bad he cut his hair, isn't it, Ana? The one in the shower is an earlier photo. *snif*

    Wow, Suzy! You baked in a giant wood stove? Gee, and I thought I was doing good to grill steaks inside mine once in a while. 'Course, it isn't gigantic, but still...

    Happy BD to your daughter, Paulette! My guys are a little older now, and I can't say they ever put me through hell, but I'm very glad I no longer have to deal with high school and buses and 2 hour delays and such. VERY glad!

  5. Well, Hello Everyone. Happy Birthday to Your Girl Paulette. I hope she enjoys the cake. It's easy and Yummy just like Marco. I can't say better than sex , with Marco. Because from the playgirl video's of him that I've seen. SEX with Marco is a Amazing memorable experience. He doesn't miss a spot.
    And he has grown his hair back. And The Yummydoodle grows and grows too. If you wondered. LOL!!
    That's why he's the ITALIAN STALLION.

  6. Yumm, Yumm, Yumm! Thanks Donna! This is the perfect way to start my morning. A wet naked Marco and a tasty cake *sigh* think I’ll have both of them at the same time.

    Suzy I don’t bake a lot either, even though I have a MAJOR sweet tooth. I guess the baking fairies did not dote me with any grace when it comes to the art of baking. *whisper* I pretty much suck.

    HaPpY bIrThDaY to your daughter Paulette!!!

  7. I think that cake sounds delish! And easy to make too.

    Happy BDay to your daughter Paulette. My son just turned 14 on the 6th. I can't believe it and worse, I'm not ready for high school next Fall.

    Hey Diva D, thanks for getting us all worked up talking about Marco's playgirl video. :)

  8. Oh my God. I was going to say something about the cake, and then I saw the picture of the sleeping stud and I just kind of drifted off...I know I'm going to be in the minority on this, but I like his hair short. I also think he should never be allowed to wear clothes. Utter. Hotness.

    LOL at Leslie. Yeah, the baking fairy gave my house the finger and passed on by, I think:-)

    Happy Birthday to your daughter, Paulette!! I'm pretty sure my mom felt the same way when I turned
    17. Me being such an angel and everything.

  9. Lord have mercy. I'll take Marco short or long haired. He is so very fine...and I will be making a trip over to Playgirl:) Speaking of which, the magazine (early 70's perhaps) was part of the women's movement. I'd buy the magazine and post the nude males on my refrigerator in their full glory. If male friends made any comments, I copped attitude and told them to get over themselves. I had the same right to appreciate a male body as they did a female one. If they didn't like it, I'd tell them not to let the door hit them in the ass.

    *snort* Apparently, even after all these years later, my appreciation
    for a fine male bod has not diminished:))

    I have a major sweet tooth like some others here but I try to stay away from WHOLE cakes for obvious reasons. However, the recipe sounds delicious and because I'm feeling fucking evil (remember the snow that's taken over my life day in and day out for damn near a month now) I'm going to send it to my sister in Jacksonville, FL. The same slut puppy that's basking in tropical temperatures. *evil bitch grin*

    Best birthday wishes to your daughter, Paulette. Not to worry, my Mom and I had a serious case of stubborn and butt head but I never doubted for one minute that she loved me and would be there for me if I needed her. It stayed that way until she died at the age of 88...almost five years ago.

  10. Yeah, Donna. You get us all worked up about Marco and then don't tell us how to find him. How cruel!!!! Not that I'd go looking for him on my own or anything....

  11. Kendra, i agree with u! i like his hair short also. men with hair prettier than mine require 2 much attention...i am supposed 2 b the center of the universe

    Cheryl, i agree with u 2! donna is a tease. she does this all the time. gives a little glimpse, then holds back the most important information. i think she needs the torture treatment. lets tie her up & tickle her until she reveals her sources.

    Nancy, u r wild! i love your attitude. such vibrance & sassiness. u make me giggle all the time. i am sorry about your mom. **(Hugs)**

    2 all the ladies, Kyra (my daughter & yes, this is why rogue is my favorite) says "thank you for the recipe & all the happy birthdays. she is having a great day. i'm making taco salad 4 dinner (my tease just like donna, i will send the recipe 2 cheryl so that she can post it 4 everyone) & donna's cake 4 desert. love ya all

  12. Paulette, that's so cool! My sister's name is Kyra too! We both always enjoyed having unusual names. Speaking of, I'm going out to see her in a month (she's in California), and I'm going to bring her one of Cheryl's books...I know her, she'll love it!!

  13. Hey, I'm sorry for teasing, You need to have a membership to playgirl to see all Marco video's. My membership was a gift, I cherish. The only reason I go over is to see Marco. He just does it for me.
    And I need to say he's my Italian Stallion even if he's really from Brazil. LOL!!!
    Nancy you crack me up. That's why you're our Queen YAHYAH!!!

  14. Nancy, too funny!! I used to post the nude centerfolds on my fridge too!! Since it was the first thing you saw when you opened the front door, it was a great way to get rid of the parade of 7th Day Adventists and other bible-thumpers that knocked constantly, and it worked on many of the other unwanted 'visitors' we were plagued with when we first moved to Hawaii...and it worked as well when we came back here, 'mainland-side' as they say--

    I'd bet we have a lot more in common, and would have a field day if we ever manage to get together and compare notes---and I've got a lot of pictures, too!

    Cheryl, I learned to cook on a wood stove, as it was all we had to heat the house and cook on when I was first with my 1st husband. We lived WAY back in the hills behind Big Sur, and I wasn't much of a cook--he'd been a short-order cook for years before he became a carpenter/mason, so he taught me what I needed to know to begin, and then I learned from friends and books and simple necessity. I LOVE cooking with a wood stove, much better than a gas one (I hate electric stoves!), and my stint as a camp cook on the gold mine we worked for two summers was a lot of fun (and WORK) too. I learned to cook for a crew over an open campfire--makes a lot of the books I read with this sort of setting really come alive!!

  15. LOL! I think nude centerfolds on the fridge is a great idea, but I don't think my guys would like it. I've always put my guy pics up in the barn, and none of them are nudes. THOSE pics are in my computer!

    If I ever need to research how to cook that way, you'll be the one I call, Suzy! I'm impressed! I used to bake all the time, but then I got too fat and my blood sugar went up a bit, so I don't make many desserts anymore unless there are lots of other people to help me eat them!

    Wow! There's all kinds of Kyra's around here! Hope your sis likes the book, Kendra. Paulette's Kyra is probably too young for them, though.

    So you have to join Playgirl to see Marco, huh? Might be worth it, but I dropped all my "guy" sites when my website started costing so much. It was a trade-off. *sniff*

  16. Donna tell whoever gifted you the membership to gift us a membership too lol. I've bought the magazines before for friends *cough cough*. Last month had a 12 month calendar with hunks for every month >>

  17. Wow! Mario has such great ass-ets.
    I think he'd go great with the whipped cream. Oh, it's for the recipe. Got it. I'm Italian descent but have never dated an Italian guy. Luckily my hubby is half Polish (the bottom half -hopefully I don't have to explain).
    Nancy, I remember buying Playgirl magazine & hiding between the mattresses lol.

  18. Sorry hiding "it" between the mattresses. I was not hiding.

  19. Gee Whiz!!!I haven't cooked on a wood stove for years. But I've cooked over a Camp fire. I remember passing playgirls around our department at work in the Work Routing envelopes. Everyone would write comments by the different hunks.
    When I retired. This one girl kept most of the posted notes and gave them back to me in a Retirement gift. It was the funniest thing.

  20. I just love it when the comments here make me laugh right out loud...and they do.

    Merry Mary...the half Polish bottom half! Damn woman, I fell out. I don't know any Polish bottom half's personally but I did have a Polish Building Trades instructor once and I adored him...just because he was so nice, so fair minded and just way cool all the way around.

    I got my first Playgirl when I was in my early 30's and in my OWN home so I didn't have to hide jack;)

    What I did have to hide was Mickey Spillane in my preteen years when I used to sneak my Dad's paperbacks. Sigh. For those to young to know, his genre was hardboiled crime fiction,
    detective fiction.

    "Frank Morrison Spillane (March 9, 1918 – July 17, 2006), better known as Mickey Spillane, was a U.S. author of crime novels, many featuring his signature detective character, Mike Hammer. More than 225 million copies of his books have sold internationally. In 1980, Spillane was responsible for seven of the top 15 all-time best-selling fiction titles in the U.S."

    *Grin* At 12 I was reading a top notch author before I even knew what one was:) Can you imagine, 225 million copies sold?

    Yeah Diva Donna...besides Ana, Queen YahYah also wants to know who was cool enough to gift you with a Playgirl on-line subscription? Who could be close enough to you to be that savvy? If you want to keep it a secret, that's okay because the mystery is delicious to speculate about....

    Suzy...There isn't a doubt in my mind that we could cause some major havoc together and get down with some outrageous fun:) Besides that, I'm a photo-HO:) Mastering a wood stove...major points, Amigo.

    Cheryl...I'm seeing the perfect place for pictures of nude hunks in your home and it ain't the barn. How about in the bottom of your underwear drawer? That is, of course, unless the hubs is sneaking Victoria Secrets in there:) (You know men don't see us as we see ourselves:)

    Paulette...I love tacos. Look forward to that recipe and thanks for the {{hugs}}. Mom was a trip and God only knows which one of us was more stubborn:)

    Kendra...Your remark was priceless: "Yeah, the baking fairy gave my house the finger and passed on by, I think:-)". Does this kind of humor show up in your books?

    Cheryl said about Marco:

    "Not that I'd go looking for him on my own or anything....".

    Queen Yah-Yah says she lies like a dog!

  21. As usual, Queen Yah Yah is correct!
    But I can't imagine 225 million copies sold of any of my books. Be nice, though.
