Ricotta cheese is not something that usually goes into cupcakes. But, since it is a sweeter cheese (as compared to, say, provolone) it works well in desserts. These ricotta pound cake cupcakes have the cheese in both the batter and the frosting. The batter is also flavored by almond extract and sugar. There is no milk, since the cheese takes the place of it. The frosting is a simple mixture of ricotta cheese, butter, sugar and orange zest – the perfect complement to these unique cupcakes!
