These are just delightful, and I must admit lovely warm with a dollop of cream but will equally be loved in a lunchbox! Put them in the freezer and zap them one at a time in the microwave (40 seconds!) to get a warm pick-me-up on a cold day.
125g butter at room temperature
zest and juice from 2 lemons
1 cup icing sugar or icing mixture
1 cups ricotta cheese
2/3 cup milk
2 cups self raising flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan forced
Beat butter, sugar and lemon zest until fluffy.
Add egg, lemon juice and ricotta. Give it a good whipping.
Take off mixer and stir through the milk then gently fold in the flour 1/2 a cup of a time.
Spoon into muffin/cupcake papers and bake for 15-20 minutes
