I think that ‘Blink Stefaans’ will be the star of the day though…

The Pancake Ladies of Ommihoek Pannekoek will be showcasing Blink Stefaans (as they affectionately call the pancake machine) from 10:00 to 14:00, selling pancakes in aid of charity at a mere R10 per pancake. This amazing machine can make up to 200 pancakes an hour and it was designed in the 1960’s. How cool is that?! To see Blink Stefaans in action, be sure to visit their Facebook page HERE. All the funds raised by the pancake sales will be pooled together for the pancake bake-off.
