Delicious 100 Calorie Lemon Ricotta Cupcakes

I found this recipe for Low Calorie Lemon Riccotta Muffins. I found it on the same site as the Fettuccine Alfredo recipe I made on Friday. Again though, I found their calorie information to be incorrect; this time it was too high!

I followed her recipe almost exactly and it made 12 delicious 100 calorie muffins but I am calling them cupcakes. To me, these seemed much more like cupcakes and I love the word cupcake! I used all white flour for mine; maybe that’s why. Like a comment mentioned on her post, the cupcake/muffins were fantastic with some jam; I used Strawberry (jam icing!).

I will be making these again and again. Next time I am going to add more lemon and vanilla extract though, I did find these to be a tad bit bland. Also, I wouldn’t try muffin wrappers – they are VERY hard to get off these muffins, after a day they need to be cut off; just grease your muffin tray well.

And there weren’t little tiny half cupcakes either, my muffin pan was over-flowing with cupcake good-ness.

Once I get the recipe how I like it; I will post it here. Below is the calorie information for her recipe (all white flour).
