Did you know?

Pancake Day is part of the Lent celebrations and always falls the Tuesday before they begin. This means Pancake Day is always 47 days before Easter Sunday. It has lots of different names such as Shrove Tuesday in the United Kingdom, Mardis Gras in France and Fastnacht Day in Germany. 

During Pancake Day in the United Kingdom, it’s estimated that we use over 52million eggs each Pancake Day. Along with eating them, some villages also hold traditional Pancake Day Races where people run a short course while holding a frying pan and flipping their pancake!

There have also been some unusual world records set around pancakes. For example, the most pancake flips in two minutes has been set at 349, which is nearly 3 flips every second, and the largest pancake ever made was over 15metres wide and weighed over 2.5 kilograms!
