Indulge in a full, hot, gourmet breakfast each morning in our sunny dining room, graced with the work of local Cape Cod artists. Breakfast starts with Excellent Coffee, fresh brewed tea and juice, and warm, homemade baked goods (our guests rave about Rick’s banana bread!). Fresh cut fruit or a fruit yogurt brûlée follow. Typical hot entrees include Ricotta cheese pancakes; Baked eggs with brie, sun-dried tomatoes and wild mushrooms; baked apple pancake with Irish bangers, or a Breakfast pizza. We believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we make sure that it is every morning!
Here’s one of our signature dishes:
Ricotta Cheese Pancakes
These pancakes are a big hit with all age groups! They are much lighter in texture than a regular pancake. We top them with fresh, seasonal berries and a sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar. Yummy!!
1 cup un-bleached, white flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup small curd cottage cheese
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp grated lemon zest
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs with the ricotta and cottage cheese, milk, vanilla and lemon zest.
Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring just until blended. Do not over mix.
Heat a griddle and lightly grease with vegetable oil. Drop the batter onto the griddle to create the pancakes. When the pancakes are bubbly on the top and nicely browned on the bottom, flip them. Serve with local maple syrup!
