Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

I had made some pineapple filling and wanted something fun and easy to make with it. I thought and thought and thought, then bam - why not pineapple upside down pancakes? I’d never heard of it before and thought it would make an awesome off the grid breakfast. You could serve it with whipped cream, ice cream, Maraschino Cherry syrup, or top them with some toasted chopped nuts and maple syrup. The choices are endless.
