This is a classic Italian cake(from Florence) that uses very little fat. Inside chocolate sponge cake is a delicate creamy ricotta filling with different complements. This is an excellent cake,very moist – thanks to the raspberries. Hazelnuts hold many surprises and add a delicate note to this cake.
This dessert  gets the balance of sweetness just right!A moist sponge-cheese cake with nuts and berries coated with luxurious dark chocolate. What could be better than this? Zuccotto is very feminine dessert for evenings with girlfriends. Serve with a glass of champagne,of course.
