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.

These were delicious and only took a few minutes to whip up, but definitely needed double quantities for enough for a family

Very quick & easy recipe - didn't think the pineapple added anything, the cinammon was a nice addition. Very sweet, needs some crispy bacon or sausage on the side to balance.

Just come acros this recipe again and had forgotten about it but as soon as I saw it I remembered how good they were and a great breakfast choice for my children,will make some tomorrow. I have always used fresh pineapple and they are delicious.

The mix works well for making pancakes without adding the fruit.... Delicious!

Lovely recipe. Family enjoyed it, there was only one left by the time I got there. I used raisins and a banana. A good pancake recipe which can be altered for other fruit and berries.

Very tasty but I me and my husband weren't keen on the pineapple (maybe because it was the tinned variety). Next time I'd just use bananas or other fruit combinations. Definately not enough for 4 people though, maybe 3!

Made this without the pineapple as I didn't have any. Also replaced half of the flour with wholemeal to improve the nutritional value. Very tasty! (I found these cooked very quickly so be careful not to burn - the frying pan shouldn't be as hot as for regular pancakes)
