10 1/2 ounces all purpose flour
5 1/5 ounces sugar
3 1/2 ounces butter
1 bag baking powder for cakes

25 ounces ricotta cheese
3 1/2 ounces sugar

inch dark chocolate chopped irregular pieces
icing sugar

Preparation

1
Mix all the ingredients to make the pastry and divide the loaf in two parts of the same wheight.

Spread them quite evenly but don't worry if you see holes between the strands: the dough, rising, will close them.
4
Mix ricotta cheese with sugar then pour on the base of pastry's strands, put the other half of the loaf in the potato masher and cover ricotta with the same process, once again don't worry about holes :)

Heat the oven at about 345° F, before putting in the oven sprinkle icing sugar on top of the cake and add chocolate chops.
