What do you think of when you think of breakfast foods? My first thought is pancakes. Mmmmm, they are delicious! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there’s no better way to start it off right than with a warm, tasty stack of pancakes.
While there are a variety of pancakes you can make, my personal favorite is the pineapple upside-down pancake presented in the video below. Chef Michael Mech shows you a wonderful recipe that is sure to delight all your taste buds.
You will need the following ingredients:
Cleaned and cored pineapple
4 ounces of brown sugar
6 ounces of butter
2 and a half cups of cake flour
2 tablespoons of baking power
1/4 tablespoon of salt
2 and a half cups of milk
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Here are the steps:
Caramelize the pineapple rings by melting four ounces of butter in a large saucepan. Add sugar and cook the rings for several seconds on each side.
In a large bowl, whisk the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together
In another bowl, mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla extract together. Then combine the wet mixture with the dry ingredients. Make sure there’s a nice thick consistency and then add 1/4 cup of melted butter
Pour a half cup of the pancake batter on the griddle. Add a pineapple ring and a maraschino cherry to the batter. Flip, and allow the pancake to cook. When done, remove from the griddle
