As it’s pancake day, we feel it is only right to salute your Great British farmers when indulging in your savoury or sweet stack today.
Where would we be without our farmers?
One thing is for sure: We certainly wouldn’t be able to tuck in to that huge stack of pancakes, and the fillings to go with them.
No matter how you have yours, be sure to think about our Great British farmers for providing us with all the tasty ingredients we use on Pancake Day.
It is estimated over 52 million eggs are used on Pancake Day.
That's 22 million more than on any other day.
On average we eat two pancakes per person meaning we use enough milk to fill more than 93 Olympic swimming pools.

Your basic pancake recipe? Eggs, milk, flour.
Based on the average amount of pancakes one person will eat, that's almost 13 million kilos of plain flour.
Sugar and lemon seems to be the classic topping for most,with sixty-three percent saying this is their go-to, but without farmers, we'd have neither of these ingredients.
Many pancake eaters these days get creative with their toppings and fillings which include anything from plain cheese to ham, spinach and mushrooms.
But whatever you decide to pop in the middle of your pancake, it has most definitely been lovingly grown somewhere in the country.
