Of the many things we Innkeepers get to spoil our guests with, some of our favorites come from the combination of butter, sugar, and flour…yes, we are talking about muffins, scones, coffee cakes and more! Each morning our guests awaken to sweet aromas drifting from the kitchen of the 1906 Lodge, where the Innkeepers are preparing something delicious! And yes, these are the same Innkeepers that man the front desk, take your reservations, check you in, and turn down your bed at night. Susan, Denese, Lori, and Alyssa take pride in preparing breakfast each morning where creativity is encouraged, letting guests experience each Innkeeper’s personal touch! You just might be lucky enough to try Denese’s Raspberry Danish, Lori’s Banana Bread, Alyssa’s Lemon Bars, or Susan’s Scones, to name a few. And since we are talking about baking, we thought we would share one of our irresistible recipes with you, 1906 Lodge Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Glaze. With Summer just around the corner, this recipe makes for a perfect Fourth of July breakfast and will make your house smell amazing! Share your muffin photos on our Facebook page and tell us how they turned out! Find the recipe at the bottom of this post!
