Ingredients

  1. 2 cups (500g) light smooth ricotta

  3. 2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  4. 1 tsp Queen Vanilla Bean Paste
  5. 2 tsp gelatine powder

Method

  1. Step 1

    Grease a 6 hole ¾ cup capacity muffin tray. Line bases of muffin tray with small circles of baking paper.

  2. Step 2

    Place ricotta and Equal spoonful, vanilla and lemon zest into a large bowl, set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Combine gelatine and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes. Microwave on high for 15 seconds or until gelatine has dissolved. Add to ricotta mixture and stir until well combined, and then fold in half the blueberries. Spoon evenly into prepared holes.
