Watch Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Show Off His 'World-Famous' Pancakes Before He 'Destroys' Them
We’re not sure how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can indulge in a massive plate of chocolate-y, whipped cream-covered pancakes and still maintain his super muscular shape, but we’re super inspired by it.
On Wednesday night, Johnson posted an Instagram video of himself prepping his world-famous — “at least they’re world-famous in my head” — Rock pancakes. If you’re expecting the batter to be half protein patter and half egg yolks, you’re wrong; the Rock uses Aunt Jemima Buttermilk mix just like everybody else.
He also has all the necessary accoutrements lined up, including whipped cream, syrup and chocolate chips. Controversial: Johnson prefers milk chocolate chips to semi-sweet. “I like the milk chocolate because it’s that sweet chocolate. Plus ‘sweet chocolate’ was my nickname in college.”
At the end of the video, the actor insists he’s going to “destroy” the huge pile of pancakes, and we’re inclined to believe him. He looks really, really excited.
Johnson takes his indulgences very seriously. In a photo posted while filming Baywatch, his cheat meal includes, you guessed it, a giant plate of pancakes.

When he’s not destroying pancakes, his meal plan is intense. In a 2015 Muscle and Fitness article, he shared that he starts the day with 10 oz. of cod, two whole eggs and two cups of oatmeal, followed by a second meal of 8 oz. of cod, a sweet potato and a cup of veggies. Then he eats four more meals throughout the day packed with lean protein, veggies and, surprisingly enough, zero chocolate chips.
