There aren’t many weeks when a large container of fresh ricotta doesn’t make it into my grocery cart. I’m a ricotta lover. I make ricotta gnocchi, blueberry ricotta pancakes, ricotta toast with fresh tomato, and I even eat ricotta in a bowl with honey and fresh berries on top. Obsessed, I tell you.
You would think two people would have a hard time finishing a tub of ricotta, but that’s not the case in my house!
These ricotta pound cake cupcakes are the best way to use the last scoop in the tub.
Here’s the thing: you can make the ricotta pound cake cupcakes and serve them plain. They’re delicious on their own. You could dust powdered sugar on top, or make an easy glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice. But, if you have the time (and the extra ricotta), the whipped ricotta frosting is divine. I may or may not have spread some on a slice of raisin bread. So good!
The quality of ricotta matters here; it’s our star ingredient. I’ve been buying Sargento ricotta. When I’m feeling decadent, I buy the whole milk ricotta and stir it into hot pasta with vegetables. Such an easy cream sauce!
But, back to the cupcakes. It’s always about the cupcakes!
