TIP: Be sure to pat the pineapple slices dry with a few paper towels, otherwise the batter around it doesn’t cook very well.

Pineapple Rings

Heat up a large skillet to medium low and grease with butter. Place about a 1/4 cup of your batter onto the pan and allow it to cook for a few minutes.

Top with a pineapple ring and cherry in the center.

Course: Breakfast
Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (20 ounce) jar of pinapple slices
  • 8-10 maraschino cherries (stems removed)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • butter or non-stick cooking spray (for greasing the pan)
  • maple syrup (for serving)
  • whipped topping (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat a large skillet to medium low.

  2. While it's heating up, drain the pineapples and pat them dry with paper towels.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the Bisquick, milk and eggs.

  4. Grease your skillet with butter or cooking spray, and add about 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the pan. Allow it to cook for about 2 minutes, and then add a pineapple slice and cherry to the center; sprinkle with brown sugar and continue cooking for another minute.

  5. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  6. Serve with syrup and whipped cream! YUM.

Recipe Notes
  • The first time I experimented with these, my batter was a little too thick and my pineapple slices weren't quite dry enough, so the batter around one side of the pineapple didn't quite cook all the way. Oops!
  • To remedy that, be sure to follow the pancake instructions on the Bisquick box, and if you're making your own homemade pancake batter, be aware of this. If you like your batter on the thicker side, you can push the pineapple ring into the batter a bit so that it cooks evenly on both sides.Β

This blog is full of completely random stuff that I want to share with the world. I have fun creating what I call "Instructional Pictures" about food, tips, life and more, and that's how I came up with the oh-so brilliant name "instrupix". :)
