What Makes The Rock's Signature Pancakes So Surprising

Larger-than-life superstar Dwayne Douglas Johnson, or Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as he is better known, has not been shy about documenting his massive appetite. It only takes a few seconds of scrolling through his Instagram page to realize that he is fueling his massive physique, which clocked in at an impressive 270 pounds in 2019 (via Cinema Blend), with a steady flow of all sorts of foods. Yet there is one item that tends to pop up over and over again. And no, we are not talking about tequila. It's very apparent that "The Rock" has an ongoing love affair with the humble pancake. And honestly, who can blame him?

Fluffy and light, they are simple to make and the almost limitless options for add-ins and toppings make way for a world of endless possibilities. Whether he is posting videos of Coconut Banana pancakes smothered in peanut butter or Instagram or simply enjoying them plain with maple syrup, the secret is out when it comes to what "The Rock" is cooking (via Screen Rant).

The surprisingly simple way 'The Rock' enjoys pancakes

There is no shortage of celebrities who enjoy sharing their favorite foods and recipes with their fans via social media and best-selling cookbooks, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is no exception. While he might not have landed a deal to pen a cookbook (although we'd be first in line to buy that), he has not been shy about sharing his pancake videos.

According to a write-up from People, one of the athlete turned actor's signature recipes is his world-famous "Rock" pancakes, or "fatties," as he referrers to them. Just grab a package of Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete pancake mix, add water and some milk chocolate chips, whip cream (preferably in the can), and a squeeze bottle of maple syrup (yep, the fake stuff), and you can eat like just like "The Rock." We love how this superstar keeps it real in the kitchen and can't wait to try these "fatties" on a lazy Sunday morning.
