Ree Drummond has been on the Food Network for almost a decade now. In that time, she’s shared countless tips with her fans on air, but her cooking career is actually older than that.

Drummond started her blog, The Pioneer Woman, back in 2006. That’s where she first shared her recipes, and details about life on her Oklahoma ranch. But a lot of her tips are applicable to all families, not just southern ranchers.

Pancakes are a staple of any breakfast table, and Drummond has an interesting take on the classic buttermilk version.

The lemon zest comes last, mixed into the batter just like the other ingredients. Despite the extra ingredients, these pancakes aren’t cooked any differently than regular pancakes. Drummond even recommends dousing them in maple syrup before eating!
