How to make muffins with peaches and Moscato
Unless they are chocolate or dark chocolate muffins, ricotta (or cream cheese) is a must if you want to make soft and velvety muffins. You can also use butter, but it is much more harmful, heavier, and rich in saturated fat. You see.
Do not remove the peel from the peaches. Otherwise, you lose all the flavor. Buy organic and you’ll be fine.
Cut them into pieces and season with the Muscat, then cover and let it rest in the fridge for 3 hours.
Put the ricotta in a bowl and work it with an electric whisk while pouring the sugar.
Add the eggs one at a time, waiting for them to blend well.
Melt the chocolate in a saucepan over low heat and let it cool. It should not be boiling but lukewarm.
Now pour in the vanilla, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour, sifting it slowly.
Squeeze the peaches well to remove the Moscato and throw them in too.
Stir and finally add the melted chocolate, stir again, pour into paper cups, and put them in the muffin mold.
Take care not to fill the mold; 2/3 is fine. Our creatures must rise and grow!
Place in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool.
Enough, finished. You will prepare the best muffins of your life in a few minutes!
Which wine to pair with peach and Moscato muffins?

If you want to accompany a cocktail with these delicious treats, the White Russian is perfect.
