I love making pancakes for a special weekend breakfast, so I'm always looking for new and creative ideas to liven up the treat. One of these ideas occurred to me when I was looking at my recipe for a pineapple upside-down cake in which butter, brown sugar and rings of fresh sweet pineapple are baked at the bottom of a simple white cake, after which the cake is inverted so that the cooked pineapple sits on top. Well, what could be simpler than pineapple upside-down pancakes, since the pancakes have to be flipped anyways? So this recipe was born, with the fresh rings of pineapple fried in butter and brown sugar until golden-brown and then placed on top of pancakes right before they're flipped. These turned out to be a delicious weekend treat.
Any pancake batter can be used, but I would suggest a thicker batter such as the one I used here to support the pineapple rings. A little almond extract is a wonderful addition to the batter as well.
