It’s another day of March Muffin Madness (MMM) and I hope today’s recipe gives us a little brightness and comfort. This recipe has one ingredient that is known for its ability to infuse a little “sunshine” and another ingredient that makes many swoon at its mere mention because its inclusion always means one is in for an absolutely delicious recipe. I’m talking about Lemon Ricotta Cake Muffins today!
Lemon Ricotta Cake Muffins from Free Range Cookies
Linda of Free Range Cookies gives us Lemon Ricotta Cake Muffins. (Unfortunately, this site is no longer active.) I love it when a recipe that is already well known and loved—lemon ricotta cake, in this case—is turned into a muffin. Muffins are just the ideal presentation of anything good in my mind.
Linda describes these muffins as “Absolutely scrumptious! Super moist with a sponge-cakey texture.” I’m pretty sure that right now we all are imagining ourselves biting into one of these muffins. Oh the joy!
There are some more muffin recipes of Linda’s that you’ll want to see:
~ 2-Minute Banana Muffins,
~ 3-Seed Pumpkin Muffins,
~ Blueberry Muffins,
~ Bread Muffins,
~ Fluffy Banana Muffins,
~ Lemon Crumb Cake Muffins,
Starter Muffins, which were Linda’s “pretty in pink” contribution to the last MMM event. This recipe is a wonderful “how to” for good muffins. You choose your own adventure according to the mood you’re in, the look you want to achieve, and/or simply the ingredients in your pantry at the time.
Three other favorite or timely recipes from Linda are Lemon Cake Donuts, Hot Cross Buns (Linda has even made this recipe using blueberries instead of raisins or chocolate chips), and DIY Easy Pizza (which happens to be not only gluten free, but dairy free, egg free, and vegan).
