Kitchens around the world get seriously messy on Pancake day. Flour, eggs, milk, and butter end up all over the place in an effort to churn out a handful of pancakes for the family.
The next time you're feeling sorry for yourself while cleaning up the pancake day debris off the kitchen counter, spare a thought for these world record makers who have taken pancake making to the highest of levels.
Biggest Pancake ever made
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the biggest pancake ever made right here in the UK, in Rochdale to be precise.
The record was set in 1994 by the Co-Operative Union, Ltd and it measured 15.01 meters in diameter, 2.5 centimeters thick, and weighed a mind-boggling 3 tonnes. It had to be made in it's very own purpose-built pancake griddle that was so heavy, it needed not one but two huge construction cranes to do the ceremonial flip.
Most Pancake Tosses
When it comes to making pancakes, the wow factor is all in the tossing! Your average Joe can manage just the one flip and you can count yourself lucky if it doesn't end up on the kitchen floor.
Australian celebrity chef Brad Jolly holds the world record for the most pancake tosses in a single minute, managing a wrist numbing 140 flips in 60 seconds - that's more than 2 flips a second.
Highest pancake toss of all time
Flipping pancakes at speed is tricky business, but the biggest risk of having to mop your pancake off the floor is determined by how high you flip it.
Coudos to Dominic Cuzzacrea, who in November 2010 managed to flip his pancake to a heavenly height of 9.47 meters in front of onlookers in Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga, New York, USA.
Most people tossing pancakes together
Slaving away in the kitchen making pancakes all on your own sucks, so the University of Sheffield organised a world record attempt in 2012 to get the most people in one place tossing pancakes at the same time.
A total of 890 people managed to toss their pancakes for the allotted time duration without dropping their pancake.
Fastest marathon run flipping a pancake
Is their anything humans won't do? Mike Cuzzacrea certainly has no such limits!
This guy completed the 1999 Casino Niagara International Marathon in the very respectable time of 3 hr 2 min 27 sec while continuously flipping a pancake in a frying pan.
No prizes for guessing the first thing he ate to replenish his carbohydrate stores after crossing the finish line.
