BreakfastTea Time


Each day at Amadeus House starts with a full breakfast featuring fresh juices, fruit, home-baked muffins or cakes, cereals and one hot dish, such as blueberry pancakes, orange waffles, honey-baked french toast, omelettes and frittatas. Home-brewed coffee and a wide selection of teas are available.

In the warm-weather months, guests gather on the classic wraparound porch for afternoon refreshments (or to spend a few lazy hours snoozing in a rocking chair). During chillier weather, guests enjoy afternoon tea by the fireplace in the comfortable living room.

Here is our most-requested breakfast recipe:

(Yogurt pancakes)

1 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
dash salt
1 1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk
3 tablespoons melted butter, or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs separated
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt

Combine dry ingredients.
Beat egg whites until stiff.
Combine egg yolks and yogurt, then blend in vanilla, milk and butter (or oil). Combine this mixture with the dry ingredients, then fold egg whites into the mix. This is a thin mix, so don't worry about it not being very thick.
Cook at high heat (about 370 degrees) on a griddle, about 90 seconds per side.
Mixture makes about 16 six-inch pancakes.
