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.

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.

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)
