HAPPY PANCAKE DAY

It’s Pancake Day today and to make things interesting here are some fun facts about Pancake Day we go flippin’ crazy for:

FACTS:

The idea of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday is more than 1,000 years old! They were originally invented as a way of using up all the leftover fatty and rich foods before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.

In total, Brits use an unbelievable 52 million eggs on Pancake Day. That’s 22 million more than any other day.Pancake Day meme

The largest pancake ever made measured 15 metres and weighed in at three tonnes – you’ll need a lot of sugar and lemon for that one.

The most pancakes flips anyone has ever done with a pancake is 349 flips in two minutes. That’s ‘flipping’ good!

Over a lifetime, an average person will eat 7,300 eggs.

In France, people like to make a wish before flipping their pancakes. They do this while holding a coin in the other hand.

On average we consume two pancakes per person on Pancake Day, which means that we get through 117 million pancakes in one day! This requires enough milk to fill more than 93 Olympic swimming pools and almost 13 million kilos of plain flour.

Andrei Smirnov from Russia ate a colossal 73 pancakes in one hour! That’s more than one a minute.

The Guinness World Record for the most pancakes served in eight hours is 34,818.

Before baking soda was invented, cooks often used fresh snow as it contained ammonia, which helped the pancakes come out fluffy and soft.

It isn’t just us – William Shakespeare was a pancake lover! It is reflected in many of his plays.

The highest pancake toss reached 329cm high. Good luck trying to beat that!

 

The team at Winners are looking forward to tucking into some yummy pancakes tonight…
