Flippin’ Mad Pancake Facts:

  • It is customary in France to touch the handle of the frying pan and make a wish while the pancake is turned, holding a coin in one hand…
  • The largest number of pancakes tossed in the shortest amount of time is 349 tosses in two minutes. We dare you to try and beat that!
  • Brits will eat a staggering 52 million eggs on Pancake Day – that’s 22 million more than on a normal day…
  • The largest pancake ever made and flipped measured 15.01m wide, 2.5cm deep and weighed 3 tonnes!
  • Maple Syrup was originally a sweet drink (makes us feel yucky just thinking about it!)
  • Pancake Tuesday is known as Carnivale in Italy which comes from the Latin for ‘goodbye to the flesh’.
