    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    muffins

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter or spray the 12 molds in a regular-size muffin tin, or fit the molds with paper muffin cups.
    2. 2
      Whisk the ricotta, eggs and vanilla together, then stir in the melted butter.
    3. 3
      Working in a large bowl and using your fingertips, rub the sugar and lime zest together until the sugar is moist and fragrant. Switch to a whisk and stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Put the ricotta mixture on top of the dry ingredients and, using a rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend—don’t worry about being thorough. The batter will be thick and heavy and that’s fine. Stir in the blueberries.
    4. 4
      Divide the batter evenly among the muffin molds, slide the pan into the oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes. When fully baked, the tops of the muffins will be golden, springy to the touch and a knife inserted into the center of the muffins will come out clean. Pull the pan from the oven and carefully lift each muffin out of its mold and onto a rack to cool.

      Very moist - great texture Very zesty, so go easy on the lime if you don't want the sour/citrusy taste

      I had ricotta left over from making lasagna the other week and it turned out to be exactly the right amount for this recipe! I used 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 cup canola oil instead of the butter (I'm sure it would taste even better with the butter though), I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose, and I doubled the amount of vanilla extract. Great texture. Thank you for sharing.
