The pineapple upside-down pancake was the first dish that came to mind when I looked at the heap of pineapples in the store. Sunshine brings lots of vibrant-colored fruits, so grabbing them before everyone seizes them from the store's shelves is wise.
Who will say No to tangy pineapples? It may have pines externally, but it is more delicious inside.
But be careful while cutting down pineapples; remove the green crown immediately from the stores; this may also save space inside the refrigerator. Then, slide through the skin carefully with a sharp-edged knife.
The dotted eyes should also be removed with a carving knife, or you may have throat irritation. Slice them evenly to make this dish.
After completing an upside-down pineapple cake, I made an upside-down pancake. This success made me try out my hands with pancakes as well.
It is needless to say, this recipe also turned out successful. I made the pancake mix from scratch, but you also use store-bought ready-to-mix. This dish is best for preoccupied mornings.
