Ingredients

1 – 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks
1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup of whipped cream home-made or purchased
Non-stick cooking spray
Toppings (optional)
Maple syrup
Whipped cream
Mini chocolate chips
Sliced pineapple
Chopped nuts
Fresh sliced strawberries

Technique

Add the banana and pour the entire can of pineapple into a blender and puree. Pour into a large mixing bowl and add eggs, vanilla, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk together until nice and fluffy. Add flour and mix until blended. Do not over mix or pancakes will be tough. Add whipped cream and gently mix until well combined. Test griddle/skillet with a drop of water to make sure it is hot enough. It should sizzle and that means the griddle/skillet is hot enough. Ladle dough onto your griddle or hot skillet. Wait for inverted bubbles to appear on pancakes. Check the underside to make sure they are light golden brown and then flip. Remove once second side is golden brown. Repeat for remaining pancakes. Garnish with any or all the toppings.
