  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 12-cup muffin pan with extra-large paper cupcake liners.
  2. Beat white sugar, butter, and lemon zest together using an electric mixer in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in ricotta cheese, followed by egg, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir into butter mixture until just combined; batter will be thick. Carefully fold in blueberries.
  4. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of turbinado sugar over each muffin.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are golden on top and a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out mostly clean with some crumbs, 26 to 28 minutes. Remove muffins from the oven and carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This can also be made into 24 standard-sized muffins. Set a timer for 15 minutes and check frequently until done when baking.
