Drummond created her blog, The Pioneer Woman, back in 2006. In Aug. 2011, she debuted her Food Network show of the same name. Since then, Drummond has become famous for her southern comfort recipes and family life in Oklahoma.
As her fame increased, many Drummond’s fans wanted to know more about what she enjoys eating. In an interview with Food Network Dish, she shared that she despises bananas and any dish related to them. Drummond also shared that she requires hot peppers in her refrigerator at all times. Additionally, her guilty pleasure desserts include coffee-flavored ice cream and pie.
“So many things!” Drummond exclaimed. “Any coffee-flavored dessert is a weakness of mine. Tiramisu, coffee ice cream, coffee-toffee pie … I’ll take it all.”

Drummond also added her Spicy Cow Girl coffee recipe and shared that she adds cayenne pepper to the “addicting,” sweet beverage.
The Pioneer Woman also has a tempting coffee-toffee crunch cake on her website. She says the cake brings both of her favorite worlds together: coffee and dessert.

“I wouldn’t want to live in a world without coffee…or cake!” she continued.
