Have you had the opportunity to try the delicious hot pancakes offered every Sunday at Big4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park? A favourite of travelers, Brendan Heenan cooks over 600 pancakes every Sunday morning to the delight of young and old. Starting this tradition over 18 years ago in 1997, Brendan soon realised his secret pancake recipe was a bit of a hit with guests. To cater for this growing demand he fashioned a special pancake trailer so he was able to cook 20 plate-size pancakes at one time. Together with lemon juice, sugar, maple syrup and toppings plus billy tea and coffee, this is the perfect Sunday morning breakfast.
To encourage people to have a chat everyone is presented with a tag with their name and place of origin. Great way to break the ice as new friendships are formed and travelling stories shared.
So what is the record number of pancakes Brendan has cooked in one sitting?………………an amazing 920! Great effort Brendan.
What is the record for the most pancakes eaten by a single person in one sitting?……..13 for a male and 9 for a female.
To cater for the volume of mixture needed Brendan prepares the batter in large buckets which he beats up using a special attachment on a drill. Now that is clever thinking.
So next time you make your booking at Big4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park make sure you include a Saturday night so you can enjoy the delicious Sunday morning breakfast.
We look forward to welcoming you into the park soon.
