Good Tuesday morning to you all and Happy Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday to you...

Shrove Tuesday is the day in February or March immediately preceding Ash Wednesday, which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes.

 In others, especially those where it is called Mardi Gras or some translation thereof, this is a carnival day, and also the last day of "fat eating" or "gorging" before the fasting period of Lent.


According to The Telegraph, here are some Pancake facts that you may not have heard about..


1. Manchester holds the crown when it comes to size


Deciding that the average, frying pan sized pancake just wasn't enough for them, the folks at the Co-operative Union in Manchester decided to go bigger. Much bigger.



On August 13 1994 they organised the making of what became the largest pancake in the world. It weighed in at 6,614 lbs (that's three tonnes and about the same weight as two cars) and measured 49ft and 3in long.


2. Ready-made pancake mix is 129 years old



If you feel guilty about using ready-made pancake mix, don't worry - people have been doing it forever. Aunt Jemimas was invented in St Joseph, Missouri in 1889 and is claimed to be the first ever ready-made pancake mixture to be sold.


3. World's largest pancake breakfast

The world's largest pancake breakfast was held in Springfield, America, in 2012. The breakfast saw 15,000 people get together in Main Street to enjoy a huge number of pancakes and raised $10,000 for a local charity

4. Pancake races

Pancake races happen all over England throughout Shrove Tuesday. The tradition is thought to have originated in Olney in the 15th century, after a woman lost track of time while cooking pancakes. When the bells for mass rang, she ran out of her house with the pan and pancake still in hand. Olney still holds a pancake race every year.
