Did you know that the largest pancake ever was cooked and flipped in Banks & Lloyd’s own resident city of Manchester, being brought into the world in 1994 and retaining its title ever since. Despite its beastly size, measuring 15.01 meters in diameter and 2.5 cm thick and weighing a whopping 3 tonnes, you could still fit three of the monstrous syrup sponges, pre-portioned, into a 40 foot container and have room to spare for all the syrup that will be needed.
