He Adds Pineapples Slices To His Batter… The Result? Breakfast Will Never Be The Same Again!

Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m one of those people that skip breakfast way too frequently. Why? It’s not that I don’t like breakfast, it’s that I just really love sleep and I’ll sacrifice that morning meal to hit that snooze button a few more times. I know, I know… bad idea. But folks, this is about to change because I just came across a mouthwatering breakfast recipe that’ll motivate even the snooziest (is this even a word?) of us to get up early in the morning: pineapple upside-down pancakes! Thanks to Michael Mech, the Bungalow Chef for eHow Food, we have this incredibly delicious and easy recipe! [googlead]


  • Cored fresh pineapple
  • 4 ounces brown sugar
  • 6 ounces butter
  • 2 ½ cups of cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ cups of milk
  • ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Maraschino cherries


  1. Caramelize the pineapples rings by melting 4 ounces of butter in a large saucepan and adding the sugar. Cook each side of the rings for several seconds.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In another bowl, mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla extract together. Then combine the wet mixture with the dry ingredients.
  4. After the mixtures are combined to a thick consistency, add ¼ cup of melted butter.
  5. Pour a half cup of the pancake batter onto a griddle. Add a pineapple ring and a maraschino cherry.
  6. Flip the pancake and allow it to cook. Remove from the griddle.
