A baked tropical pancake delight!


2 tablespoons butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup of chunk pineapple
toasted coconut (spread 3 tablespoons of coconut on a paper plate and toast in the microwave for one minute stirring every thirty seconds till brown.)
two or three fresh strawberries sliced
whipped cream
favorite syrup
orange slices

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Beat eggs lightly in a large bowl. Add flour, milk, and salt just until mixed.
Melt butter in 9 inch pie plate (use a glass type this will make it puffier) in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar and ground cinnamon evenly over the melted butter. Arrange pineapple over the sugar. Pour batter over pineapple. Bake 30-35 minutes. Quickly loosen the edge of pancake and turn upside down onto a serving plate. Top with sliced strawberries, toasted coconut,dollop's of whipped cream.( Other suggestions, add banana's, macadamia nuts, and fresh blueberries.)
Serving suggestions: serve with coconut or berry flavored syrups, bacon or ham on the side.

Coconut Syrup
8 tablespoons butter
¾ cup coconut milk
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract
2 tablespoons of shredded coconut (put through food processor)

Place butter, milk and sugar in 2 quart pan. With range on medium heat, dissolve sugar and melt butter. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add baking soda and flavoring. It will foam up give this a few minutes before serving to go down.

Very Berry Syrup
1 2/3 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 oz. pkg. raspberry gelatin mix (I've used strawberry in a pinch)
8 oz. fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed blotted dry
8 oz fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed blotted dry

Stir together water, sugar, corn syrup, and cornstarch in a 2 quart pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in gelatin until dissolved. Fold in raspberries and blueberries; gently stir. Serve over pancakes or waffles.
