That's why Jesse decided to put four celebrity pancake recipes to the test to see which was the best, and it was a lot fun.

He tried out recipes from Gordon Ramsay, Ina Garten, Chrissy Teigen, and threw in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for good measure.

First up was Gordon Ramsay's fancy recipe. Jesse measured all the ingredients precisely to make everything fair.

Gordon uses an entire liter of milk and 640 grams of flour among other ingredients before cooking them in a buttered skillet until golden brown.

Since Jesse had already picked his favorite, he had his friends do a taste test.

"I love it. It's like Sunday morning."

Next up was Ina Garten's recipe for banana sour cream pancakes.

She sifts her dry ingredients in one bowl, mixes her wet ingredients in another bowl, and then combines them after. Oh, and she tops each pancake batter with one tablespoon of diced bananas.

Then Jesse whipped up Chrissy Teigen's Dutch baby pancake recipe.

She keeps things super simple by tossing all the ingredients in the blender. She then pours the batter into a cast iron skillet and bakes it in the oven for about 17 minutes.

It was a hit.

"This is like a french toast pancake."

And last but not least, was Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's traditional recipe for flapjacks, which he posted on Instagram.

He added milk chocolate chips, cooked them on a stovetop, and finished them off with maple syrup and whipped cream. Because why choose?
