Did you know:
National Pancake Day is only eight years old at IHOP, but it has historical roots: coinciding with Mardi Gras, the original Pancake Day (aka Shrove Tuesday) was celebrated the Tuesday before lent and dates back to early Christianity in Europe. Legend has it that pancakes were common on Shrove Tuesday because they were an easy way to use up any dairy and eggs before Lent (when eating rich foods was frowned upon).
One of the most famous, long-running Pancake Day traditions is the annual pancake race at Olney in Buckinghamshire, England, dating back to 1445. In it, contestants (traditionally women) race through an obstacle course, flipping a frying pan the entire time. Pancake races are a widespread tradition across the United Kingdom.
The largest US pancake race is held in Liberal, Kansas, which has coordinated an international competition with Olney since 1950. The towns agree upon a pre-measured course, and then times are compared to determine an overall winner.
