If you’re a pineapple lover like me, then these Sunny Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes should make you extra happy! They start with pineapple rings cooked in butter and brown sugar, and end with drizzle of maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon… need I say more? ;)

This recipe is part of my Baker’s Dozen program with Krusteaz, and I used their Buttermilk Pancake Mix, which has always been a staple in our house. Pancakes in general are actually a regular thing around here – they kind of feel synonymous with “weekends” to me these days – so it’s always fun to come up with ways to make them a bit different… like this!

The bright yellow pineapple rings remind me of sunshine too, so I designed some mini “Eat up, sunshine!” party flags that you can hot glue to toothpicks or bamboo skewers to make this breakfast extra special for someone.


You can find the full, print friendly recipe for these pineapple pancakes over on the Krusteaz website, but I wanted to share a quick peek at the process of making them with you here:




You’ll cook the pancake like this for 1 to 1-1/4 minutes, then…


In addition to sunshine, these pancakes also remind me of flowers and would be super cute on a plate with a fruit or maple syrup-drawn “stem”, right?! When it comes to presentation though, here’s the method that’s definitely the most popular with my kids:


I love silly things like this… especially when it comes to weekend mornings! But just eating these pancakes is also a great way to bring on the happy. ;) Enjoy!
