Kaiserschmarrn – Austrian Pancakes

These Kaiserschmarrn (Emperor’s Mess Pancakes)– Austrian Pancakes  are my take on the classic Alpine dessert. Kaiserschmarrn get their name from the words Kaiser meaning emperor and Schmarren which is a word to describe shredded or scrambled food. These pancakes are light and caramelized and are made from a sweet batter made with flour, eggs, sugar, salt, and milk, baked in butter. The pancake is broken up while cooking, similar to scrambled egg.

Start by making a batter from flour, milk, eggs and melted butter. Cook in a large skillet. Once browned on one side, flip the pancake using a spatula or by shaking the pan and flipping if you dare! After a minute or two break the pancake into pieces using two forks. Flambé the pieces by setting rum alight in the pan. Once the flames die down, add apple or cranberry compote and serve in the skillet.

Thanks for your question Laura. "Flambé the pieces by setting rum alight in the pan. Once the flames die down, add apple or cranberry compote and serve in the skillet."
