My kids liked these. I used crushed pinapple, which worked really well, and made the pancakes easier for the kids to cut and eat.

Orange flavor is lost. used 1/2 c juice, and increased flour to maintain consistency. Could deal without pineapple chunks, so would recommend crushed if you must have pineapple flavor. Made a pineapple juice "syrup" as others suggested so as not to waste (though drinking is tasty too). This helped, but again, would rather not have a chunk//chopped fruit pancake. otherwise, it's a fluffy buttermilk pancake.

These pancakes are tasty. I used crushed pineapple and I did add vanilla. Next time I would also add ginger. Most flavored pancake recipes do call for vanilla and cinnamon--an extract and a spice (of some sort) are pretty standard in flavored pancakes, and I don't know why they were omitted here, so I'd add them back in. The orange juice was lost in this recipe, and I did want to taste it, so next time I'd probably add orange zest or extract. Thanks for the recipe, we enjoyed these!

these were very good...light and fluffy just how pancakes should be. I used pineapple chunks rather than sure to drain them well! Next time I will experiment by adding a touch of ginger to the batter to give it more of a "tropical" taste. Overall, very very good!!!

Good, but make sure to drain pineapple. The first time I did, the second time I didn't (thinking "Ooh, mixing orange juice and pineapple juice will be good) and it threw off the consistency, making them burn and stick to the pan.

These weren't bad. I didn't have buttermilk but had 1/2 c half and half to use up, so I used that with some regular skim milk and added just under 1 tbsp of vinegar to accommodate. I used crushed pineapple and think next time I would not drain so carefully as the batter was a little thick.

My kids and I really enjoyed these pancakes! I think they are my new favorites, they have such a nice soft texture and the flavor is perfect. My only change was to use a can of drained crushed pineapple instead of chunks. I will make these often :)

This was good, though you could stand to ditch the sugar (pineapple and OJ provides enough on their own), and to really compliment the pineapple, it would be better with a healthy dose of grated orange rind added to the batter. I make stramberry-lemon pancakes regularly and use essentially the same recipe, but the rind is very important.
