We propose this version of muffins inspired by the delicious ricotta tart sour cherries and typical of Roman Jewish culinary tradition. In a bowl, mix the liquid ingredients ie eggs, milk and melted butter. In another bowl mix the flour, sugar and baking powder.
At this point, add the liquid to the dry one and mix well. Add the ricotta (previously crushed with a fork to make it less lumpy) sour cherries pitted and cut into small pieces and half of the syrup of the box. Fill two-thirds of the buttered ramekins and bake in a preheated oven at 180° C for about 15-20 minutes.
I tell you a recipe advises you to enjoy them by having a little bit of syrup of sour cherries in which immerse them .... delicious!!
