    About this recipe: An Austrian dessert that tastes like something in between a pancake and a waffle.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 4 eggs, yolks and whites separated
    • 125ml milk
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 125g plain flour
    • 100g raisins, optional
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 400g apple sauce, optional

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Beat the egg yolks in a separate bowl until smooth; mix in the milk, sugar, salt, flour and raisins until just moistened. Fold in the egg whites.
    2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan and cook until golden brown; flip and cook until set on the other side, about 1 minute. Tear the kaiserschmarrn into pieces using two forks and continue cooking until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with icing sugar to garnish and serve with apple sauce.

    it is the most delicious dish ever! There's another traditional Austrian dessert called germknodel (spelt something like that) and it's a dumpling filled with jam and has vanilla sauce and poppy seeds - 03 Mar 2013

    this dish was not nice, it burned very quickly and tasted quite dry. it definitely needs the apple sauce, i have this dish in austria and they do it with plumb sauce which i much prefer! - 13 Aug 2012

    This was so so yummy I adored it! I made half the batter since I only had 2 eggs and I also added a touch of golden syrup. I usually bake online recipies horribly so this proves just how good this is! - 02 Aug 2016
