We love pineapple upside-down cake, so we took that love and turned it into pancakes! The brown sugar will make the bottom nice and caramelized, just like it would in the cake! We love that it makes the pancake a little crunchy.
Wait until the pancakes are almost ready to flip before adding the pineapple ring. This will make it easier to slide the spatula under the pancake and flip it without creating a huge mess. Turning the heat lower after flipping will keep the sugar from burning.
Delicious Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

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