Horse Stamp Inn Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Horse Stamp Inn, Waverly, GA.
Even before they find the location, prospective bed and breakfast proprietors need a fat file of delicious, fail-safe breakfast recipes. Kris and Tom Hutcheson do.

Kris and Tom

 This Denver couple have relocated to southeast Georgia and turned a former private estate into the spacious and gracious Horse Stamp Inn. Kris has combined family favorites with recipes gleaned from professional chefs advising B&B owners to ensure her guests enjoy an exceptional breakfast.

Two of the girls.
Applewood bacon, fresh eggs from the "girls" in the hen house, fresh fruit including blueberries from their former pecan orchard's backyard, a variety of quiches and these delicious pancakes, for example.

 Horse Stamp Inn Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup whole milk
3 TBS unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup fresh blueberries

Whisk dry ingredients, whisk wet ingredients then whisk together dry and wet. Pour the pancake batter and then add blueberries while they're cooking.

Tip: As parents of four children who always brought their friends home, Kris and Tom developed a lot of shortcuts. Kris combines butter with syrup, heating and serving both together. Worked for me.

Next time I stop in I'll ask to sample their White Cheddar Cheese Grits.
