Favorite Pancakes of Dwayne Rock Johnson 

The first thing you think of for breakfast is a soft and fluffy pancake with lots of maple syrup, whipped cream, and fresh fruit on the side. Sounds yummy, right? We are big fans of pancakes with whipped cream from time to time. They are easy to make and can be customized to your liking. 

If you take a look around, you will find that every pancake lover has his or her own unique set of ingredients that make the recipe different from the others. While the traditional ones are made with flour, baking soda, eggs, sugar, and milk, some people prefer to use oatmeal instead of flour or add salami, ham, etc. for a tastier dish. Everyone is unique in their pancake preferences.

You can try to make the pancakes that Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson, also known as ‘The Rock’, loves to eat. It is called ‘The Rock’s famous Coconut Banana Pancake’. It contains coconut shavings, coconut milk, banana, butter, eggs, and everything delicious.

The Ingredients That You Need

  • Flour: Gives pancakes structure and texture.
  • Brown Sugar: Adds sweetness and richness to the batter.
  • Vanilla Sugar: Adds a delicious vanilla flavor to the pancakes.
  • Baking Powder: Acts as a leavening agent to help the pancakes rise to the top and become light and fluffy.
  • Salt: Balances the sweetness and enhances the flavor of the pancakes.
  • Coconut Milk: Provides a creamy texture and subtle coconut taste to pancakes.
  • Cow’s Milk: Further enriches the batter and contributes to the tenderness of the pancakes.

Chef Recipe Tips:

  • I recommend frying the pancakes in a Teflon-coated frying pan to prevent the pancakes from sticking. 
  • You can substitute coconut oil for butter. 
  • You can substitute half the milk with coconut water.

Freeze the pancakes: 

Homemade pancakes or waffles are a quick and easy breakfast when you are not sure what you want to make, and you need something in a hurry. If you have a few extra Coconut Banana Pancakes, you can simply freeze the rest and store them in an airtight container or in a plastic storage bag. Then, when you’re ready for a pancake or two, pop them into your toaster oven.

Tips for Perfect The Rock’s Famous Pancakes

Allow the batter to rest: If you want a fluffier pancake, let the batter sit for at least 15 minutes before you scoop out the pancakes and place them on the griddle to shape. This will give the baking powder some time to activate with the flour, which will help you get the height you want. 

Mash the banana: You can use the banana slices. But if you’re not a fan of having big chunks of banana in your pancakes, mash the banana instead. It blends well and gives you more banana taste. 

Halve the recipe: This is a recipe that makes a lot of pancakes, which is great if you’re going to make them for a crowd. However, this recipe can easily be halved and works just as well if you’re just making them for yourself or one other person.

How to Make the Pancakes Super Fluffy?

  • Do not overmix the butter: Mix the pancake batter until it is just combined. Overmixing can lead to the development of gluten, which will result in dense pancakes. If the batter has a few lumps, that’s okay.
  • Let the batter rest: Allow the butter to rest for 10-15 minutes before frying. This will allow time for the baking powder to activate and for air bubbles to form, which will result in fluffier pancakes.
  • Use baking powder: Make sure your baking powder is fresh and active. This leavening agent is responsible for the rise and fluffiness of the pancakes.
  • Avoid flattening: When pouring the batter onto the griddle or frying pan, do not press the batter down with the back of a spoon. To maintain airiness, allow the batter to spread naturally.
  • Cook over low to medium heat: Use low to medium heat to cook pancakes. High heat can cause cakes to overcook and undercook internally.
  • Flip only once: Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble and the edges look set before flipping it. Flip the pancake only once to avoid overcooking the pancake.
  • Use fresh ingredients: You can make fluffier pancakes with fresh baking powder, eggs, and other ingredients.
