Can we use any other liqued instead of vine.
Recipe sounds so yummy but i can't use alcohol.
If anything else we can add as a liquid please let me know.
I have been making this cake for a long time, but some people asked if I could change the ricotta for something else because they didn't like ricotta that much so I substituted vanilla pastry cream & I use Amaretto liqueur & I do strawberries in place of cherries & my cake is a vanilla sponge & I use candied lemon peel in place of currants. I make this as a torte & have it as one of my wedding cake flavors for brides to choose from. It's an awesome flavorful cake. I top it off with whip cream at home, sometimes a meringue. If you can't use any alcohol then just use fruit juices.
There are many variations of this cake, I got mine in Palermo, Sicily, one of my friends gave me her version, her family was from Messina, Sicily. There is Cassata Cantanese & Cassatella di Sant'Agata, any variation can work, the cake is just GOOD! I think I am going to try this version with the Marsala myself, my family will eat this no matter what substitutes I put in it.
Thank you very much for your detailed reply.i can't wait to try it.
I will tell u when i wiil try.
