Pancake Records

The world pf desserts is usually a very complicated one, because most of the recipes are complex, they require precise quantities and steps and quite often they even call for true talent. However, one of the most popular desserts in the world seems to take shape from only a few basic ingredients and a couple of easy steps. We are talking about pancakes, of course, and even if they too require some skill (at least for getting to the right consistency or flipping them), they are far from the intense labor of creams, pies and pastry.

But the end result is delicious and it can have surprising flavors after a single step, since the filling ot the topping is the choice of he/she who shall enjoy them. So it’s no wonder that the wonderful pancakes are so appreciated all over the world. In fact, they are so beloved that they’ve inspired a couple of interesting records, records that, of course, involved massive resources and the dedication of a lot of people.

The first notable record is for the the largest pancake. Its diameter was of 15 meters and it was 2.5 centimeters thick. It’s no wonder that it took cranes and special platforms to make it and flip it, but the effort seems to have worth it, since this record hasn’t been taken down for more than 20 years. This genuine “giant pancake” was made in England, on the 13th of August 1994.

But records can also be vertical, so it’s worth mentioning the highest stack of pancakes. The record was the work of Dutch chefs and their efforts materialized, on the 16th of October 2014, in a structure of 242 pancakes, measuring 91.2 centimeters.

Just as impressive is the record for the most pancakes cooked in an hours, 1,092 to be more precise, and this was the work of the American Ross McCurdy, achieved on the 13th of August 2013. But we all know that team work pays off, so it’s no wonder that a team of 175 volunteers managed to cook 76,382 pancakes in 8 hours; this also happened in the USA, on the 9th of May 2009.

But hey, all pancakes need filling, right? Well, we don’t know how many pancakes you’d manage to fill in a minute, but the current world record, achieved at the beginning of this year (on the 27th of January 2015), is for 8 pancakes and it’s Brit’s Sam Homewood’s success.

And we can’t end this without a truly exotic record. Believe it or not, but the American Mike Cuzzacrea ran a whole marathon while flipping a pancake in a frying pan. It happened on the 24th of October 1999 and he really didn’t stop for 3 hours, 2 minutes and 27 seconds.

If we’ve peaked your interest for pancake records, all we can do is wish you luck and remind you that at least the batter can be made fast and delicious with the help of the right tool. As for the rest, only creativity and ambition will separate you from the rest.
