Annual King Pancake Fail

It’s been the 6th year in a row that people of Yalutorovsk, the Tumen Region, try to make the largest record-breaking pancake. It’s pretty much the same year by year – the same frying pan of three meters in diameter, the same cooking technique and the same people.

  1. Well seems to me that they need some Vermont Maple Syrup to go along with that pan cake. I think the problem is that the pan gets to hot and un even heat to some extent. I don’t think the french would be much help here, then again, they would be the first ones I would talk to about it, The French are wonders in the Kitchen and that goes twice for the Italians. Never the less it looks like a great way to spend a mid winter week end. Where is my invitation? I have Maple Syrup and I do love pancakes.
