Always a favorite breakfast selection at the Wentworth Mansion, our recipe for Plantation Rice Flour Pancakes was recently featured by our friends and Charleston B&B travel experts at BedandBreakfast.com! Wentworth Mansion guests are treated to complimentary a la carte breakfast each morning, just across the lawn at our restaurant, Circa 1886. True to its fine dining feel and creative, delicious dinner menu, breakfast at Circa 1886 is anything but ordinary.
Rice Flour Pancakes are served daily with maple syrup, a dusting of confectioners sugar and for the adventurous eater, rabbit sausage. Our Rice Flour Pancakes present a “new” taste of old Charleston. Restaurant Executive Chef Marc Collins developed the Plantation Rice Flour Pancakes as nod to Charleston’s rich culinary history. The rice flour used for these deliciously light pancakes is also used in Circa 1886’s signature Plantation Rice Rolls, served at dinner with whipped olive oil. Magnificent.
Here is our beloved breakfast recipe. Test out these made from scratch pancakes at home and let us know what you think!
