A different twist on a classic muffin. The secret ingredient is ricotta cheese.
This cake-like muffin is super easy as it’s base is a cake mix! You can use yellow, white or lemon flavored cake mix. I used lemon, as I felt it would up the flavor. However, the other mixes will produce a fine muffin.
Recipe makes 12 Texas-style muffins or 24 regular size.

- 1 pkg instant lemon-flavored instant pudding
