For the Guinness World Record, an Iowa community makes 14,280 pancakes.
When a total of 14,280 pancakes were served up at an Iowa city’s annual Pancake Day celebration, a Guinness World Record was broken.
The grocery giant Hy-Vee donated 2,400 pounds of pancake batter for Pancake Day in Centerville, according to organizers. Hy-Vee previously set the Guinness record for largest plate of pancakes at 13,000 in Blue Springs, Mo., in June.
To set the record, almost 100 volunteers representing a variety of local companies cooked 14,280 pancakes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Organizers noted that on a typical Pancake Day, roughly 17,000 pancakes are served, but that amount was lowered for the record attempt to guarantee that all of the pancakes met Guinness standards.
Each pancake had to be at least 5 inches in diameter and no more than.39 inch thick, according to the rules.
