Tropical Pancakes with Banana and Pineapple

Tropical Pancakes with Banana and Pineapple topped with Pineapple Sauce


1 ripe banana
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 egg
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup crushed pineapple (20oz can crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved)

1/2 cup pineapple juice (reserved from can of crushed pineapple)
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

If desired:
Shredded Coconut
Chopped Walnuts
Whipped Cream

In blender put banana, milk, egg, baking powder, salt and pineapple.  Blend until smooth. Add 1/2 cup flour, blend until smooth. Add remaining 1/2 cup flour, blend until smooth.

Preheat griddle to medium high heat.  Cook pancakes until bubbles pop, flip.  Cook for 1-2 more minutes until golden.

While pancakes are cooking, make sauce.

In a small sauce pan, combine pineapple juice, pineapple and brown sugar.  Heat to a boil on medium high heat.  Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer while pancakes cook, about 15 minutes.  Stir often.  Remove from heat.  Let stand about 3 minutes before serving, to let sauce thicken.

Top pancakes with sauce, whipped cream, coconut and walnuts (if desired)

ENJOY!!  :-)


Clean out an empty ketchup bottle and use it for you pancake batter.  You avoid all the messy drips and it is also very handy for making "letter and number" pancakes for your kids.

Pita Pizzas

Pita Pizza

These little individual pizzas are super easy and quick to make.  Kids can help and make what they want.  Pizzas only bake for 6 - 10 minutes, prep item depends on how silly of a mood your kids are in.

You will need:

1 package of wheat PITA POCKETS
TOMATO SAUCE (I used some leftover, but you can use a small can)
TOPPINGS - whatever you like

For crispy pizzas -broil pitas on low for about 5 minutes before topping
For softer pizzas - place toppings, then bake

I put my pizzas under the broiler until the cheese was golden.  This took about 6 minutes.
You can bake on 400 for 8-10 minutes as well.

Get the kids involved.  They can put on as much or as little of the toppings as they like.
