Espresso BellaVitano®


  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 2.5 oz. Sartori® Espresso BellaVitano® cheese, grated
  • ½ cup toasted pecans
  • ½ cup cranberries


  • Preheat oven 375°. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
  • Place the butter & sugar in the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment & beat on high speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl often, until light & fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, again scraping down the sides of the bowl & mixing well after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla & milk; mix well.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, espresso powder, cranberries, pecans, & cheese in a large bowl.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the butter mixture into the flour mixture just until the batter comes together (do not over mix the batter or the muffins will be tough).
  • Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling each about ¾ full. Bake 20-25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown & slowly spring back when touched lightly in the center. Let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the cups.
