Ree Drummond‘s pancake video has fans obsessing over The Pioneer Woman (and her pancakes). The Food Network star shared a video all about her “first love” that had fans drooling in the comments.

Ree Drummond posts a mouth-watering video of pancakes on Instagram 

Drummond shared her love of pancakes in a May 1 Instagram post. She filmed the pancake-making process from start to finish. Captioning the post, “You never forget your first love,” she whisked together the dry ingredients. Then she poured in the wet ingredients, adding what looked to be milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. 

Drummond zoomed in on the batter and, as she zoomed out, the pancakes got golden-brown in a cast-iron skillet. Finally, the Food Network star showed pancakes stacked high on a plate as she slowly poured maple syrup over the top. Meanwhile, Diana Ross and Lionel Richie’s “Endless Love” played.

Fans loved the Pioneer Woman video 

Scroll the comments on Drummond’s pancake video and see that fans couldn’t get enough. “Pannycakes!!! Saturday mornings were for pannycakes growin up and still are!!🥞🥞🥞🥞,” Sunny Anderson, co-host of The Kitchen, said.

Drummond’s pancake video even grabbed her kids’ attention. “Bring me some,” her 24-year-old daughter, Alex Drummond, who helped film the Food Network show, replied. 

Jocelyn Delk Adam, the creator of the blog, Grand Baby Cakes, chimed in too. “Ohhh yes I want these so bad,” she said, adding that it “comforts” her like no “other.” “Guess I’m off to the kitchen to make some pancakes 😂😂😂,” chef Damaris Phillips added.

“This video is what I would show to an alien to explain pancakes,” another person wrote to which Drummond replied with a crying laughing emoji. “Butter, flour, eggs – the trifecta that makes all delicious things!” commented another. “This is the perfect song for this video,” another fan wrote, calling it “an ode to pancakes.” 

Other fans noticed a particular bowl in Drummond’s pancake video. Asked if she used a floral bowl from Franciscan Ceramics, the former food blogger said yes, adding that the one in the video belonged to her grandmother. 

Ree Drummond’s pancake recipes

Consider Drummond’s pancake video an introduction, or teaser, to Pioneer Woman pancake recipes. The Super Easy! cookbook author has different versions of the classic breakfast food. 

There’s Drummond’s sheet pan pancakes. Which, as noted in her latest cookbook, keeps her “from having to babysit individual pancakes on a griddle.” In this particular recipe, Drummond makes the cooking process even easier by preparing the batter in a blender. 

Another is Drummond’s Mason Jar Pancake Mix. As she once explained on her Food Network show, she keeps the mix “on stand-by” so she’s “ready to knock out breakfast any time in the days ahead or if a passing rancher stops by.”

Yet another Pioneer Woman pancake recipe is Drummond’s Pancake Pockets. She packs everything together — syrup, mix-ins, pancake — hence the name.
