Ben Sparrow, armed with just free-range eggs, flour, milk, oil, a frying pan and a cordless hot stove, ventures deep into caves in the Scottish Highlands and even abseils down a lighthouse in dramatic video footage.
The adventurer, dubbed the ‘Pancrobat’, braves the elements and shows off his fantastic flipping skills to reach those who normally miss out on the Pancake Day fun and cook them up delicious piping hot pancakes drizzled with syrup and topped with fruit.
On his one-man mission, Ben covers more than 1,400 miles, first seeking out sea cave explorer Colin Coventry deep in the Smoo Caves in the Highlands.
His tour of Britain ahead of today’s Shrove Tuesday – commissioned by the happy egg co. – sees him finish at the iconic red and white striped Happisburgh lighthouse in Norfolk.
Ben said: “I’ve always used eggs from the happy egg co. to make my pancake batter before flipping into action and when they approached me with this challenge, I just couldn’t resist.
“The emotional reaction of the unsuspecting workers when I arrived to flip pancakes was so heart-warming and an experience I will never forget”.
Geraldine Phillips, from the happy egg co., added: “Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy Pancake Day.
“As eggs are the main ingredient in pancake batter, we felt that it was down to us to give the pancake deprived a once-in-a-life time opportunity.
“There was no one better to deliver this little miracle other than the Pancrobat”.
