During one of my recent trips to Florida, I saw a picture of a pineapple upside down pancake and immediately my mouth watered. It’s been in the back of my mind and today is the day. I had no recipe, this is my interpretation.
As I write this, the husband is at the market buying some ingredients.
This was so good that husband is making himself another batch. He claims the first one was a tease and it was.
Your favorite pancake recipe. I used 1 cup of prepared mix adding 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, one egg and enough whole milk to make the batter.
For pineapples: 1/4 cup brown sugar, 4 tablespoons of butter and 4 tablespoons of coconut rum.
butter for grill
confectioners sugar for dusting
maraschino cherries and mint for garnish.
Make batter and set aside to rest.
In a frying pan heat butter with brown sugar, add pineapples and rum. Cook until pineapples are coated and sause thickened.
Prepare your grill adding butter until hot but not brown and pour batter. Once pancake starts to bubble place pineapple, cherry and some of the sauce. Flip pancake, once cooked on other side serve with remaining sauce and sprinkled with confectioners sugar.
Dip the rim of your glass in maraschino juice and cover with sweet flaked coconut. Take three slices of pineapple and blend with pineapple juice. Pour into prepared glass and fill with your favorite sparkling wine. Cava is used in my “casa”.
What a cute idea! I’ll have to try that, I love pineapple upside down cake too.
Great post! That’s a wonderful brunch item and your presentation and place setting is so inviting. Me gusta todo!
It’s husband approved.
The pancakes look amazing, but what I’m really dying to try is that pineapple mimosa! I love the idea of the coconut-flecked rim. Nice work, Norma!
This pancake idea is so creative and decadent – love pineapples 😀

Can I come to your house for breakfast? 😀
You have an open invitation, just come to New York!
Oh my pineapple goodness. This looks breathtaking so right. One of my favorite posts of yours. I want to eat and drink it all.
What a unique idea for pancakes! So delicious especially with the fancy drink to go with it! I love how your husband went right out to buy more supplies. It must be REALLY Good! Irresistibly good!
What a fun and creative twist on old standbys. Both the pancakes and the mimosa look and sound delicious. Love the coconut on the rim of the glass.
I haven’t had upside down cake in such a long time. I love your version, sounds and looks delicious. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Beautiful dish for Easter,Norma!
What an idea…upside pancakes, I didn’t imagine it can be done with pancakes…!!!
I really like this idea. You are a very clever gal. Pineapple upside down cake was a part of my childhood and back than it couldn’t be Easter without it. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
what a cheery and tropical looking dessert, love it!

I really wish I hadn’t eaten breakfast already now! And that I had pineapple in the fridge. Because well…I would so have a second breakfast for these.
Wow you have left me speechless on this one. Omg, I can eat that every weekend on my cheat meal day for the rest of my life. Great work!
I want to live next to your “casa”!!!

This looks wonderful…you are making me second guess my new clean diet!
