Author Notes

When the morning is busy but cooking is still an option, consider making blueberry ricotta muffins. These mildly sweet freshly baked little cakes will take roughly 10 minutes of your kitchen time and go so well with a cup of morning coffee or tea. The sweetness comes from a few spoons of maple syrup and fresh blueberries. Semolina, used instead of regular flour, gives somewhat grainy texture to a muffin. Add delicate ricotta, a spoon of lemon zest, top it with a sour lemon slice dipped in maple syrup and let a great day begin. —exploredough
