Tropical Puff Pancake

Tropical Puff Pancake Tropical Puff Pancake

Made this tropical puff pancake for breakfast today, and made it healthier with whole wheat flour and just egg whites (see the linked recipe below). I used fresh pineapples to make the pineapple sauce, and it was delicious with pancake.













Trans-fat Free


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons margarine
or butter, melted
1 teaspoon cornstarch
8 ounces pineapple tid-bits
½ cup coconut
1 medium bananas


Heat oven to 425.

Place oil in 10-inch ovenproof skillet; heat in oven until oil is hot, about 10 to 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and eggs; beat at medium speed until well blended.

Gradually stir in milk and margarine.

Pour batter into hot skillet.

Bake at 425℉ (220℃) for 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 375℉ (190℃).

Bake an additional 10 to 12 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

A well will form in center and edges will puff up.

In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and pineapple.

Cook over medium-low heat until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.

Fold in coconut and banana slices.

Remove pancake from oven; spoon filling into center.

Serve immediately.

Pancake will collapse as it cools.

Also works well with apple slices and cinnamon.
