A grocery store has broken a Guinness World Record by preparing and then serving 13,000 pancakes.
Hy-Vee assembled a team of 13 chefs and then last week, at the chain’s store in Blue Springs, they spent 7 hours, 16 minutes cooking up 13,000 pancakes.
A Guinness judge was on hand to verify that the serving of pancakes. They broke the old record of 12,716, which was set in Russia in 2017.
The pancakes were donated to Harvesters-The Community Food Network, a regional food bank serving the greater Kansas City area in both Missouri and Kansas.
The record attempt was timed to coincide with the launch of Hy-Vee’s new menu.
