An Australian chef battered his way into the world record books on Pancake Day. Andy Wrobel claimed the title for the world’s tallest stack of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, reports Metro.

He beat a 2008 record set in Croatia after building a 76cm tall stack of 60 pancakes at the Pancake Parlour in Melbourne. The leaning tower of pancakes eventually toppled over, but only after the record was confirmed by Guinness officials. The chef flips over 100,000 pancakes every year at the popular restaurant where he has been working for over 25 years. Mr Wrobel said: “We tried last year and we got to 61 centimetres and did pretty well. –MM
