Love pancakes? Yeah, me too. A lot of Quad City are volunteer fire stations hold pancake breakfasts on the weekends to raise money. Well, check THIS out...

An Iowa city's annual Pancake Day celebration featured a Guinness World Record being broken when a total 14,280 pancakes were served up at the festival! Organizers of Pancake Day in Centerville, Iowa, said 2,400 pounds of pancake batter were donated for the event by Hy-Vee, which previously set the Guinness record for largest serving of pancakes at 13,000 in Blue Springs, Missouri in June.

About 100 volunteers who represented numerous local businesses cooked up 14,280 pancakes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday to take the record.

Organizers said about 17,000 pancakes are usually served during an average Pancake Day, but the number was reduced for the record attempt to ensure all of the pancakes followed Guinness requirements.

The requirements stipulated each pancake must be at least 5 inches in diameter and no more than .39 inch thick.
