The next time your child is asked to contribute to a school fête fundraiser, don’t bother to bake a cake or knit a jersey. Rather train your offspring (and a friend) to make basic pancakes. All they need is a two-ring gas burner, a couple of non-stick frying pans and very cheap ingredients. They can sell cinnamon-and-sugar pancakes at R5 a pop and make an excellent profit from hungry fête visitors. What about the gas ring? Don’t sweat it… this remains your property, and it’s a useful investment.
