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.

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.

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.
