A town in Iowa cooked 14,280 pancakes to take the Guinness World Record, all for an annual Pancake Day celebration.

Organizers of Pancake Day in Centerville said 2,400 pounds of pancake batter were donated for the event by grocery chain Hy-Vee, which previously set the Guinness record for largest serving of pancakes at 13,000 in Blue Springs, Mo., 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.

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