Servings: 8

Active time: 45 minutes

Total time:


  • 1 1/3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 c packed light brown sugar, separated
  • 2 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s)
  • 1 c buttermilk or refrigerated coconut milk
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter, plus extra for griddle
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 (20 ounce) can of sliced pineapple or one medium-sized pineapple peeled, cut, and cored into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 8 maraschino cherries with stems removed (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and 1/4 cup brown sugar until well mixed.
  2. Next whisk in Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs, buttermilk (or coconut milk), melted butter, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until batter just comes together. A few lumps are ok.
  3. Heat a griddle or non stick skillet over medium heat and melt extra butter.
  4. Once hot, add one pineapple ring to center of griddle or skillet. Sprinkle the top of pineapple with a little of remaining brown sugar. Turn over after browned a bit. If using maraschino cherries, add a cherry to the center of the pineapple ring.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter over the pineapple allowing it to go outside of the ring. Cook until bubbles form and the bottom is more sturdy, golden brown, and crisp.
  6. Carefully flip entire pancake over, including pineapple and cherry (use a large spatula since this process can be a bit more flimsy with the weight of the pineapple). Cook until golden brown and crisp on the other side.
  7. Remove the pancake and place in a warm oven (about 225°), pineapple side up, and repeat the process (starting with buttering the griddle) until all pancakes are done.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
