Southern Hospitality Extends to Southern Breakfast Cuisine: 1895 Inn's Best Pancake Recipe

SAVANNAH Georgia -- Southern hospitality is a stereotype of the lifestyle and culture found in the American South. Wikipedia describes it as "particularly warm, sweet, and welcoming to visitors to their homes, or to the South in general". 

Southern cuisine plays an important role in southern hospitality.
"I learned to love the tastes and smells of good food, and that true Southern hospitality begins in the kitchen, the soul of a home", writes Lisette Verlander and Susan Murphy in  The Cookin' Cajun Cooking School Cookbook.  
Members of Romantic Inns of Savannah, proprietors of 1895 Inn offer "personalized service that will not be surpassed". Based on 556 TripAdviser.com bed and breakfast reviews to date, Bob Ray and Ed Bryant make good on their invitation to "make our home yours" during your visit to Savannah.

Baked Banana-Pecan Pancake
The 1895 Inn, Savannah GA USA

INGREDIENTS --

Toppings:
2 ripe bananas, sliced
1 cup warm maple syrup, to taste

Pancake:
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon (packed) light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 large egg
6 ounces vanilla or banana yogurt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup (mashed) very ripe banana (can also add/substitute other fresh fruit)
½ cup pecans, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS --

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a nine-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, whisk together first five ingredients. In another bowl beat together egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla.  Add egg mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until evenly combined.  Fold in mashed banana and chopped pecans.
2.  Pour batter into pie pan and spread evenly.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cut into 6 wedges. 
3.  Serve warm with toppings.



Note: While Banana pancakes are popular among backpackers and other travelers traveling along the "Banana Pancake Trail", often beginning in Bangkok and weaving through South Asia and Southeast Asia, this southern pancake version featuring Georgia pecans is served elegantly in the 1895 Inn's genteel setting. Fresh fruit, bacon, and coffee round out the inclusive breakfast at this top-rated Savannah bed and breakfast inn.
