Note: You may reduce the calories per serving to 206 and the fat grams to 7 by substituting skim milk for 2%%, and part-skim ricotta for whole-milk ricotta. By making the above changes and substituting WonderSlim fat replacer or applesauce for the shortening, you'll get a somewhat tougher, more rubbery cake, but the calories per serving will be reduced to 172, and the fat grams to 3.
