Begin by preheating oven to 350 degrees.  Then whisk the eggs and sugar together until fluffy. Press the ricotta through a sieve and add it to the batter with the melted butter.  Stir this until completed mixed together. Sift the flours, coco and baking powder into the batter and again mix well.  Add the nuts and warm water and mix it quickly.  Pour mixture into the cake tin and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Let cake cool on a rack and then sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
