A friend of mine who owns a bed and breakfast gave me this recipe, and these chocolate-ricotta cheese muffins are fantastic. Great for breakfast, a snack, and also great in lunch boxes.

  • Fold cheese mixture and canola oil into flour mixture until just blended. Spoon batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups.

7.17.20 I was out of milk, so I used buttermilk which worked out fine. I baked for 26 minutes before a toothpick came out pretty clean. I could see the muffin sides were getting pretty brown, so I took them out of the oven. The center was just slightly underdone, but that really wasn’t a major issue. They taste very chocolatey, I just wish they looked more chocolatey (eye appeal not great IMO). Texture is somewhere between a muffin and cup cake, and they are very moist, tender, and most important, tasty. Read More

Texture wasn't what I expected. Thought the cheese would have been a little chunkier making the batter thicker. It turned to liquid when mixed with the milk. I might add a little more cheese or combine ingredients differently next time. Also the recipe called for lightly beaten eggs been then read to add one at a time. Little difficult to separate when already beaten. I will try again, but with adjustments. Thinking I might add some cinnamon to enhance the flavor a bit as all I could taste was the chocolate chips.
