Saturday was my first official day of summer. So I woke up and decided to celebrate by turning my favorite summertime drink into pancakes. Um yeah... they turned out kind of crazy good.

In a small bowl, mix together oil, baking powder and two TBL water. In a large bowl, combine the baking powder mixture with all remaining pancake ingredients. Melt a little butter in a skillet over medium heat and pour about a 1/4 cup of batter into pan. Once it bubbles, flip. Repeat!

Now that you've gotten all your pancakes accounted for, start on the topping by melting 1 TBL butter over medium heat in the same skillet. Add the pineapple and saute for a few minutes. Then, add the pepper, cinnamon, and coconut milk to the pan. Saute another minute and let the coconut milk thicken up a bit. Spoon the pineapple topping over the pancakes and drizzle with some warm maple syrup. Enjoy!

These look awesome, but would be infinitely more awesome with some rum. ;)

I know, I was wishing I had some rum on hand so it could be a true Pina Colada!
