1 8.5-ounce box corn muffin mix

1/2 cup milk

1 large egg, beaten

Olive oil, for shallow frying (about cup)

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

18 seedless green grapes, halved

Honey, for drizzling


  1. Whisk the muffin mix, milk and egg together until smooth.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 inch of oil to the pan and heat until shimmering. Working in batches, drop teaspoons of batter into the oil to make small pancakes, about 1 1/2 inches wide. Cook until bubbles appear on the tops and the bottoms are golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and finish cooking, about 1 more minute.
  3. Top each blini with ricotta and a grape half. Drizzle with honey and serve warm.
