    Directions

    1. Vanillina available HERE!
    2. To make the cake batter:
      1. Preheat your oven to 325F degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with baking spray or grease with butter.
      2. In a large mixing bowl combine the butter and sugar. Mix with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy. Add the eggs in one at a time followed by the amaretto, almond extract and vanilla. Mix in the yogurt until combined.
      3. Lower the speed to low and add in the flour a little at a time. Finally, add in the baking soda, flour and salt. Mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Set aside.

    3. To make the filling:
      1. In a mixing bowl combine the ricotta, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Whisk until smooth and set aside.
      2. To make the crumb topping:
      3. In a mixing bowl combine the sugars, cinnamon, salt, butter and flours. Using your hands, mix until the flour is fully absorbed. The mixture will be crumbly.
    4. To assemble:
      1. Spread half of the cake batter in the pan. Pour all of the ricotta mixture over the first layer of batter.
      2. Dollop the remaining batter on top of the ricotta filling. Using a spoon or a spatula swirl and smooth the batter over the filling. Top with the crumb topping.
      3. Bake until the center of the cake is set, about 60-70 minutes.
      4. Dust with confectioners sugar before serving.
