- Add ricotta-egg mixture to the creamed butter.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients in two additions and mix well. Do not over-mix.
- Spoon batter into muffin pan, almost to the brim. If using, sprinkle the flavored sugar on top to give the muffins a crusty texture and additional Chai Spice flavor.
