  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

For the topping:

  • 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
  • ½-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • Zest from half of a small lemon
  • Juice from half of a small lemon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat together ricotta, eggs, flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon nutmeg. Spoon into either a medium sized baking pan coated with cooking spray or four ramekins coated with cooking spray. Bake for 35 – 40 minutes (for ramekins) or 45 minutes (for baking pan.)

  4. To serve, spoon ¼ cup blueberry topping over each ramekin or each serving of ricotta.
