Like many of you, I’m sure, I’ve only just realised that today happens to be pancake day, and I’m really happy now. As if the thought of fried-batter-flipping-family-fun and a sweet, delicious indulgence aren’t enough to get your juices flowing, a group of students from the University of Sheffield have added mathematics to the, ahem, equation, and claim to have developed a fool-proof formula for making perfect pancakes. Hold on to your handles:
BOOM. How do you like that, eh? The university's Maths Society teamed up with Meadowhall Shopping Centre for the food-themed fun, and the numbers have apparently been tested by chefs at the local Frankie and Benny's, despite the fact the chain favours American-style pancakes, and the formula is based on this Delia Smith recipe.
