Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch Bundt pan with cooking oil. Beat the ricotta, oil and granulated sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well.

Step 2

Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the cheese mixture in batches, alternating with the yogurt. Mix just until everything is incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan.

Step 3

Combine the brown sugar, cocoa and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle half the sugar mixture over the batter in the pan. Add the remaining batter and top with the remaining sugar mixture.

Step 4

Bake in the center of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out dry.

Step 5

Cool the cake in the pan on a rack. When it's completely cool, invert it carefully onto a serving plate.
