There's nothing like a homemade breakfast, and the owners of The Oliver Inn Bed + Breakfast in South Bend know that better than anyone. Tom and Alice Erlandson have owned The Oliver Inn since August 2005, and have quickly become a go-to source for freshly made, and extra delicious, breakfasts for any occasion. In addition to creating gourmet breakfasts for their guests, Alice Erlandson delights patrons of Tippecanoe Place Restaurant with her scrumptious desserts. Here is one of her popular breakfast recipes:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
