A study of 2,000 adults revealed the top mishaps people have experienced with their batter – and expect to suffer from again this year.
Among the top flops were lumps of flour or eggshell being in the mix, pancakes sticking to the pan, and running out of ingredients.
It also emerged that February 21st will see an average of five pancakes made per household, but 19 per cent of them won’t be a success.
Based on the number of homes in the UK, this will result in 25,133,195 pancakes being classed as inedible.
Nearly a third (32 per cent) claim the first pancake they make is always the worst and 23 per cent consider it the practise run.
The research, commissioned by Utilita Energy as part of its Bill Busters series, also revealed 19 per cent make too much batter.
To combat waste, the supplier has worked with chef Jamie Oliver to create a pancake calculator.

Archie Lasseter, Utilita Energy’s sustainability lead, said: “It’s ironic that a day that was traditionally created to use up leftover ingredients, has now resulted in a lot of waste, and all the while, the cooking costs will be adding up.
“It’s always a fun event, testing out our flipping skills and getting creative with toppings, but this year more than ever, people will be wary of the cost.
“To help households budget after answering a few basic questions, our smart calculator reveals the exact ingredients required, and how much each pancake will cost to make and cook.”
The research also found when people experience a mishap with their pancake, it’ll likely end up in the bin (38 per cent), while 29 per cent eat it no matter what and 11 per cent will feed it to their pet.
