Ricotta Pound Cake Cupcakes with Whipped Ricotta Frosting


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!

These chocolate sour cream cupcakes are a chocolate (and cupcake!) lovers dream come true. They are flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder, sour cream, vanilla extract, and brewed coffee. They also contain standard items like flour, sugar, salt, eggs, vegetable oil, baking soda and baking powder. The frosting is an nontraditional ganache, made from heavy cream, bittersweet chocolate and coffee liquor. Top with a few sprinkles before serving, and enjoy! You won’t be able to eat just one!
