64th Annual Duluth Lions Club Pancake Day stacked full of attendees
On Thursday, crowds gathered for the 64th Annual Duluth Lions Club Pancake Day. The goal every year is to raise money for sight, hearing, and diabetes needs in the community. Many of the volunteers have been helping out for over a decade.
“This is my 11th year doing this. My grandfather did this for a number of years, and I’m following in his footsteps,” said volunteer Davan Scott. “It’s good to reach out to the community, this goes for a good cause.”
The meal included fresh-made regular or gluten-free pancakes. An advantage of volunteers returning year after year is their pancake skills continue to improve.
“It’s all the same batter, so it’s kind of how you have the temperature set,” said Scott. “For us, what we found out over the years is on the griddle, you want to make sure the bubbles pretty much stop hopping and there’s a little crust that goes around the edge. Then they’re ready to flip, let that sit for a bit, and then once they don’t stick, you can take them off and serve to the public.”
With a line going out the door during the dinner rush, many attendees went back for seconds and thirds.
