The main distinguishing feature of this cottage cheese muffins recipe is the tender and juicy texture of muffins. Moreover, to make them at home you do not have to be a professional chef you simply need to combine the ingredients in the bowl, make sure to get rid of all the lumps and bumps, add the cottage cheese mixture to the pan and bake. So, simple as that!

However, I learned some tricks during the times I have been baking with cottage cheese that I will share with pleasure. First and foremost, silicone pans are the most practical baking forms for baking cottage cheese pastry and cakes. Do not ever use fat-free cottage cheese for baking. It can influence on the overall taste of muffins, and not in a good tasty way. Note that the recipe is a basic recipe for cottage cheese muffins. You can add any filling that you like. From berries, chopped fresh fruits and nuts to chocolate chips, dried fruits, lemon or orange zest and, even, Nutella.
