Method

  1. Roughly chop the pineapple and slice the banana. Tip the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar into a bowl and mix well.

  2. Make a well into the centre and crack in the egg, then gradually mix the egg into the flour, adding the milk gradually to make a soft batter.

  3. Stir in the pineapple and banana. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the batter in heaped tablespoonsful, well apart to allow them to spread. When bubbles appear on the surface, flip the pancakes over and cook until light golden.

  4. Cook all the pancakes and keep them warm. Serve 2-3 pancakes with a spoonful of yogurt and a little maple syrup poured over.

Sweet enough with no sugar at all - made with one ripe banana and 100g of prunes / dried apricots with a little extra milk. Whizzed in a blender it was fluffy and yummy, healthy enough for both me and my 9 month old son.

Delicious, easy and quick! They are lovely just with some yoghurt as they are sweet already withouth the maple! A keeper, will be a regular weekend breakfast over here!

Really easy to make, and enjoyed it a lot. Had some cooking issues but I think that was more my fault than the recipes, was using too much batter for each pancake. Looking forward to a second attempt!

Easy tasty way to use up leftover bananas. Kept the heat low as advised by others and had no problems. No self-raising in the cupboard so used plain plus extra teaspoon of baking powder. Wonderful texture with soft banana oozing in places, yum!

I made these this morning for pancake day :) They were delicious! I managed to make 9 from the recipe which served 3 nicely but would struggle to serve 4. I would definitely recommend starting your pan on a low to medium heat and working out the best temperature from there. My first couple were burnt on the outside and still not cooked in the middle, but the rest turned out fine! I have sandwiched 2 together with golden syrup and chocolate buttons for an afternoon snack!

Made these yesterday on a cold snowy day, there are 5 of us so I tripled the ingredients. Having had the originals in a new york diner consensus was, "Delicious".
Maple syrup a must (used very ripe banana as a filling). May have crispy bacon on the side next time.

Mary, Thank you for such a simple recipe...

We had this for breakfast. I used wholemeal flour - although it had a slightly heavy consistency they turned out fine.

For fillings, we decided on banana and raisins. Soft, yummy, simple, delicious and a great treat.

100% recommend this and will definitely make again - ;-) every Tuesday!

Just made these for holiday breakfast - yummy! Didn't use any pineapple and used light brown soft sugar and plain white flour, still turned out well. Served stacked with maple syrup and fresh coffee, what a start to the day! Thank you! Oh, first batch cooked perfectly but then 2nd batch git bit burnt, guess the pan got too hot. But still great!

These pancakes are amazing! Just used ingredients from the cupboard, didn't need to buy anything. Just had banana and used light brown soft sugar instead but worked really well. Takes about 10 minutes to make!
