Over the weekend, a friend from Nuremburg, Southern Germany came over to showcase her local delicacy, the Kaiserschmarrn. Originated from Austria and also common in Hungary, this is parallel to mainstream pancakes or crêpes, often enjoyed as a dessert. Here, Jule provides all you need to achieve this hearty, irresistible sweet.
All you need for four servings:
300ml of milk
30g of white sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
250g of flour
pinch of salt
- In a mixing bowl, separate the egg white and whisk it into a meringue-like texture. This is to give the pancakes a spongey bite. Remember to check if its done just like Jules did!
- Using a bit of butter, pour the batter and cook it until it becomes golden brown (approx. 3 minutes per side).
- Using a spatula, tear the pancake into pieces and sprinkle with white or icing sugar. You may add raisins or serve with ice cream as well!
