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.

I've been making these pancakes a while now, a favourite with my kids and their friends! I usually double up the receipe for 4-5 kids. Like others I reduce the amount of suger also when I don't have pineapple, I use just bananas or sometimes grate a sweet apple in. Very filling for those little tums and great to know you're getting some goodness into them. A winner all round, and a few cold ones (leftovers) in the fridge today that they can have for school lunch tomorrow ;o)

They are a bit to sweet - 1-2tbsp of sugar should do the trick.

Yummy! first time I made pancakes and they turned out great. Served with a drizzling of honey instead of maple syrup or yogurt. Perfect Sunday morning breakfast. Agree with comment re: burning - they really do burn easily - they only need a few seconds of cooking on each side so be careful!

Made this morning for breakfast with my 2 year old and the result was perfect! I like the idea that they contain a fair amount of fruit and the taste was delicious.will try to substitute the pineapple with chopped apples.

definately easier to make than normal pancakes - and I could "suffer" the over ripe bananas that I usually hate!
Really good!

I made these last night for pudding for me and my hubby and they were absolutley delicious. Really quick and easy and very tasty. Will definitely be making these again. Used fresh pineapple and banana but I didn't have any cinnamon so used mixed spice instead with dark muscovado sugar instead of light - gorgeous. Halved the recipe and there was just enough for 2.

I found that there was too much fruit in the recipe and they didn't come out anything like the picture! They were nice though and I will try them again with a few tweaks

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make, my son helped with the measuring and the mixing. They got a thumbs up from him. Didn't add the pineapple as I didn't have any but I substituted the milk for buttermilk as I had some left over from a recipe for muffins. Will definately be making them again.

Very easy and tasty. I think this will become my staple pancake recipe from now on! Didn't have any pineapple but used raisins instead. Love the cinnamon flavour!

Easy, quick, tasty pancakes. I didn't need quite all the milk - maybe as fresh pineapple was rather juicy. Defo agree with the others - this only makes enough for 3 people and that was serving with yoghurt and more fresh banana and pineapple. Will make again for sure.
