Some images make me salivate and this is one of them. These fluffy pancakes with tangy with buttermilk, stuffed with meaty, smoky, salty bacon, and topped with a maple and brown sugar caramelized pineapple sauce are perfect to treat Dad for Father’s Day.
To streamline breakfast, prep the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls the night before. The bacon can also be made the night before (save the bacon fat) as can the sauce, which can then be reheated. Get the kids involved. They can measure and whisk, while you or older kids can man the stove. Fresh pineapple is best, but I often cheat and buy it already cored and sliced to make this as easy as possible.
The one thing I will put my foot down about is the maple syrup. It has to be 100 percent pure maple syrup. Pancake syrups and breakfast syrups do not cross my threshold. Maple syrup is pricey, but the flavor and texture are sublime and make the dish.
