“The breakfasts are out of this world, always providing good ideas for dishes for entertaining at home”. Comments like this from a recent guest are often overheard and speak to the wonderful “most important meal of the day” that awaits you at the inn. Imaginative, delicious, delightful and hearty-breakfast at the Albert Shafsky House Bed & Breakfast will be one of the highlights of your stay.
Rita loves creating in the kitchen and is always generous with portions as well as recipes.
Here are two of Rita’s Signature Recipes for you to enjoy at home!
Cranberry Banana Nut Bread
1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
3 Bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 cup Nutmeats
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
Mix ingredients in order listed. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour at 350°. Test for doneness, as it may need an additional 5 to 15 minutes baking time.
Baked Apple Pancakes
3 Eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Lemon Rind, grated
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tart Apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled and chopped into small pieces
5 teaspoon Butter, divided
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
Confectioner's Sugar for garnish
In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla and lemon rind. Whisk in flour until blended. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Preheat oven to 400°.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in 10" pan over medium heat. Add apples and saute until tender. Place sauteed apples in the batter and pour into a greased baking dish or pie pan.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining cinnamon and sugar. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. When pancake has baked 20 minutes, remove from oven and quickly sprinkle with sugar mixture and drizzle with butter. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioner's sugar.
Thank you Rita and Stephanie. We had a great time in your lovely inn. The breakfast--perfect!
