Cherry Cupcakes with Ricotta Frosting

One more box of ricotta nestled away in my fridge, leftover of the Lemon Ricotta I had made, before any foul smell emanated from the container, with the date of expiry fast approaching. I knew I had to act fast, like now....fished out for some books. And I remember in the book Divya sent me, had a recipe with Ricotta. My end result, visually massacred cupcakes, because I filled my cupcake case with too much batter, but taste wise it was a bang on!

Recipe Source: 1 Mix, 50Cakes
Ingredients:
Flour - 175gms
Glace Cherries - 70gms chopped
Baking Powder - 1tbsp
Cornflour - 1tbsp
Unsalted Butter - 175gms
Caster Sugar - 175gms
Eggs - 3 Beaten
Vanilla Extract - 1tsp
Glace Cherries halved to decorate - 14
Frosting
Ricotta Cheese
Icing suagr - 70gms
Vanilla Extract - 1/2tsp

Preheat the oven to 190C. Place 28 paper cases into bun tins or out double layer paper cases onto baking trays. Stir in a tablespoon of the flour onto the chopped glaced cherries.Sift the remaining flour with the baking powder and cornflour into a large bowl, and add the caster sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat well until the mixture is smooth, then stir in the glace cherry and flour mixture. Divide the mixture between the paper cases. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20minutes, or until risen, firm and golden brown Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool. For the frosting, mix the ricotta with the icing sugar and vanilla extract, then spoon little on each cupcake. Top each cupcake with half a glace cherry.
