Following are the some of our favourite pancake-related world records:-

Largest pancake

The largest pancake was created in Rochdale, Manchester, UK in 1994, by the Co-Operative Union, Ltd. Measuring 15.01 m (49 ft 3 in) in diameter and 2.5 cm (1 in) thick, the pancake weighed 3 tonnes (6,614 lb).

Most tosses of a pancake in one minute

The fastest flipper may well be Australian celebrity chef Brad Jolly, who holds the record for most tosses of a pancake in one minute, notching up a so far unbeatable 140 flips in 60 seconds during an event in Sydney.

Highest pancake toss

Dominic Cuzzacrea made a monumental flip measuring 9.47 m (31 ft 1 in) at the Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga, New York, USA, in November 2010.

Most people tossing pancakes

The most people tossing pancakes is 890 and was achieved at an event organised by the University of Sheffield (UK), in Sheffield, UK, in February last year. While a total of 930 participants attended, 40 flippers had to be discounted due to either dropping their pancake or not managing to toss their pancake within the allotted time.

Largest pancake spun

Dosa's are large crispy pancake made from daal which are spun around when made. The largest ever spun measured 76 cm (2 ft 5 in) in diameter and was achieved by Cao Huaijiang (China) on the set of Zheng Da Zong Yi - Guinness World Records Special in Beijing, China, on 20 June 2009.

Most pancakes thrown and caught in 1 minute - team of two

It will come as no surprise to find serial record breaker Ashrita Furman has also got in on the pancake record breaking action. Ashrita teamed up with his regular record-breaking collaborator Bipin Larkin to throw and catch 46 pancakes in 60 seconds in New York in September 2009.

Fastest marathon flipping a pancake

While flipping a pancake continuously in a frying pan, Mike Cuzzacrea (USA) completed the Casino Niagara International Marathon (Buffalo, New York, USA - Niagara Falls, Canadian side) in a time of 3 hr 2 min 27 sec on 24 October 1999.
