Sweet Pea and Ricotta Cupcakes

Sure, we call them sweet peas, but most people don’t think of peas as a sweet.Prior to making my sweet pea and ricotta cupcakes, I’d never had peas in a dessert. Although these pea cupcakes feel like they belong at the farmers’ market in a stand next to the lady in faded jeans selling bib lettuce, these pea cupcakes are definitely a dessert.
