Servings: 8


For pancakes:

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar, separated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter, plus extra for griddle
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

NOTE: For Pancakes, you can also ditch most of the ingredients above and use a pre-made mix like Bisquick and follow the directions on the box.  Add the cinnamon, ¼ cup of brown sugar and vanilla to that pre-made mixture.

  • 1 20 oz. can of sliced pineapple (you can also cut your own pineapple to ½ inch rounds)
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Whipped Cream (optional)
  • Maple syrup (for topping)

For Cinnamon whipped cream:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. In  a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and ¼ cup brown sugar until well mixed.  Then whisk in eggs, buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until batter just comes together.  A few lumps are ok. (NOTE: skip this step if you are using Bisquick and follow directions on the box.)
  2. Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat and melt extra butter.
  3. Once hot, add one pineapple ring to griddle.  Sprinkle the top of pineapple with a little of remaining brown sugar.  Turn over after browned and caramelized a cit.  If using maraschino cherries, add a cherry to the center of the pineapple ring.
  4. Pour about ¼ cup of batter over the pineapple, allowing it to go on both the outside and inside of the ring.  Cook 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles form and the bottom is more sturdy, golden brown and crisp.
  5. Carefully flip entire pancake over, including pineapple and cherry.  Cook another 2 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp on the other side.
  6. If you want to make cinnamon whipped cream topping: In a large bowl using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, whip heavy cream, powdered sugar and cinnamon on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  7. Top pancakes with maple syrup and whipped cream and serve.
