Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with the cane sugar to a thick white foam, add the cocoa, finely grated orange peel (which should be thoroughly cleaned beforehand) and stir the foam gently. Gradually stir in the ricotta and partially cooled semolina porridge – the batter should be smooth. Finally, stir in the chopped chocolate.
