Tropical Fruit Pancakes

Ingredients
2
ripe bananas, sliced
2
teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/4
2
tablespoons sugar
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
cup milk
3
tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1
8 ounce can crushed pineapple (juice pack), drained
 
Cream cheese (optional)
 
Sliced papaya, mango, banana, and/or pineapple (optional)

Directions

  1. In a food processor bowl or blender container combine sliced bananas and lemon juice. Cover and process or blend until smooth. In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another mixing bowl combine milk, egg yolks, and margarine or butter; stir in banana mixture and pineapple. Add banana mixture to flour mixture all at once. Stir just until batter is combined but still slightly lumpy.
  2. In a small mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold egg whites and 2/3 cup of the coconut into the batter, leaving a few puffs of egg white. Do not overbeat.
  3. Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle. Spread batter into a circle about 4 inches in diameter.
  4. Cook over medium heat until pancakes are golden brown, turning to cook second sides when pancake surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (about 1 to 2 minutes per side). Serve immediately sprinkled with remaining coconut. If desired, top pancakes with cream cheese and fruit. Makes 20 pancakes.
