Making Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

This is a fun twist on pancakes. They are so decadent, they can be served for dessert. Caramelizing the pineapples not only gives them a nice rich flavour, but also creates a sticky toffee in the pan that you can use as a drizzle in place of syrup. When you cut into a stack of these, the little Maraschino cherries pop out onto the plate. What a lovely surprise!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 large stack (2 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 pineapple slices
  • 2 cups prepared pancake batter*
  • 3 Maraschino cherries

*I used 1 cup of gluten-free pancake mix and adjusted the box directions to make the batter (I used 1 cup milk, 1 Tbsp oil, and 1 egg). You can use any pancake batter you prefer.

Steps:

  1. In a large pan over medium heat, mix together butter and brown sugar.
  2. Add the pineapple slices. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip and cook another 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat. The toffee sauce will thicken as you prepare pancakes.
  4. Pour some pancake batter onto a greased griddle over medium-high heat.
  5. Place a pineapple ring in the center and gentle press down on it.
  6. Drop a cherry in the middle.
  7. When the pancake is covered in little air bubbles, carefully flip it over and cook until golden brown and fully cooked. Continue making the rest of the pancakes.
  8. The toffee sauce should now be thick. Drizzle over pancakes and serve.
  9. Watch the cherries jump out when you get to the middle. So cute!
