Tuscan Lemon Muffins

Tuscan Lemon Muffins

YIELD: 12 servings (serving size: 1 muffin)

7 9/10 ounces all-purpose flour (1 3/4 cups)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 large egg, lightly beaten
 Cooking spray
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar or 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

 1. Preheat oven to 375° ( I kept my oven at 350F).
 2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (through salt); make a well in center. Combine ricotta and next 5 ingredients (through egg). Add ricotta mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
 3. Place 12 muffin-cup liners in muffin cups; coat with cooking spray. Divide batter among muffin cups. Sprinkle turbinado sugar over batter. Bake at 375° for 16 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. (It took 30 minutes at 350F) Cool 5 minutes in pan on a wire rack.
