Pancake stacking world record broken with 32in tower


Pancake history was made at the weekend when a 32-inch tower of the flat treats broke the world record for the highest stack.

Staff from TV show Food Network UK spent the weekend cooking, flipping and stacking a whopping 725 pancakes into a neat tower to celebrate Shrove Tuesday in a rather original manner.

Some 253 eggs, 11lbs of flour and more than 26 pints of milk went into the mammoth creation, which took the team 13 hours to make.

Nick Thorogood, managing director of the entertainment channel, said: 'One of the greatest aspects of British Food is its tradition and the celebration of events such as Pancake Day.

'We wanted to celebrate this year's Pancake Day with something a little different and what better way than to create a giant stack of pancakes!'

Some places in the UK really take their crepe competitions to new levels on Shrove Tuesday each year.

In Troutbeck, in the Lake District, there has been an annual Pancake Race held since 2000.

Children and adults alike partake in the activity, racing to cross the finish line of the 150m-long course while flipping their pancakes in a frying pan along the route.
