Ricotta and pear muffins

I will present you the best muffins you can eat: very tasty, very moist, very rich and aromatic.
Sold? Hope yes! Because it is one of the best recipes I made recently.
And if you don´t have everything the recipe says, no problem. Below you can see the replacements.

Ricotta and pear muffins
200 g ricotta (3 / 4 cup)
Eggs 2
110 g butter
Common sugar 200 g (2 / 3 cup)
Zest 1 / 2 lemon
200 g Flour (2 cups)
Baking powder 2 tsp.
Baking soda 1 / 4 tsp
Fine salt 1 / 2 tsp
large pears

- Preheat oven to 200 ° C. Prepare muffin pan
- Mix the ricotta with the eggs
- Peel and cut pears into cubes about 1 cm. Add to the mixture.
- Melt the butter and add to mixture.
- Rub the lemon zest and sugar. So we get fragrant sugar
- Add to the preparation of eggs, butter and pears
- Apart, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Sieve to remove any lumps
- Mix all.
- Put in the muffin pan to the top of the dish
- Sprinkle sugar to make it crunchy.
- Bake at 200 ° C for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry
- Yield 14 muffins.

- The ricotta can be substituted for vanilla yogurt or milk
- Pears can be substituted for any other fruit, cranberries, apples, peaches, banana, etc..

- The muffin cooking pan can be exchanged for coffee cups or custard ramekins buttered and floured. Or else cooked in pudding mold, but at 180 ° C and with more oven time.
- You can add nuts or cocoa nibs as I did, to give a crisp.
- Can be stored for 4 days

Have a nice weekend!


  1. Hi Juliet,
    I used your recipe to make peach and ricotta muffins, and they turned out brilliantly! I incorporated wholewheat flour and substituted lime in place of the lemon zest. I really liked the texture of the muffins and am certain I will be baking them time and time again.
    Here's the link to my blog post with my adaptations:
    Thank you for sharing a winning recipe!
