While strolling through the cobblestone streets of Vienna, Austria, we stopped for lunch at Café Central (est. 1876) for some original Austrian food. The waiter highly recommended this Austrian dish
Kaiserschmarrn is an original Austrian sweet dish, made from Palatschinken (pancake) dough. It was created for Kaiser Franz Joseph and Elisabeth (Sissi) in 1854. He always said “geb mir mal den Schmarrn her” so it was named Kaiserschmarrn thereafter
You need an oven safe pan (400 F). Here are some of my recommendations:
Kaiserschmarrn ingredients, butter, milk flour and eggs Beat egg whites, sugar and salt to firm peak, fold into dough mix Place Kaiserschmarrn into a oven safe pan in a preheated oven at 400 F Remove from oven Tear Kaiserschmarrn into pieces with fork, sprinkel sugar on top and caramelize Serve Kaiserschmarrn with applesauce serve Kaiserschmarrn with berries Dust with confectioner sugar and serve with fruit or apple puree
1.5 cups milk
1.5 cups sifted all purpose flour
3 tbsp table sugar, for the topping
2 tbsp raisins (optional)
1 packet vanilla sugar, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
a dash of rum
some grated lemon zest
a pinch of salt
approx. 3 tbsp butter for frying
1 tbsp of butter shavings and sugar, for caramelizing
confection sugar and cinnamon for dusting
1 small plate
Place raisins in a bowl, mix with the rum and let stand for approx. 15 minutes.
Separate the eggs and yolk, and place the yolks in a mixing bowl.
Pour in the milk, flavored with some grated lemon zest and vanilla extract, and add the sifted flour. Mix to a smooth dough.
Beat the egg whites together with the sugars, add a small pinch of salt. Beat until it forms a firm peak, and fold into the dough mix.
Pre-heat the oven to 400 F.
Melt the butter in a heatproof (coated) pan. Pour in the mixture, and after 1–2 minutes on medium high heat, sprinkle the soaked raisins over the top. Cook on stove top for another 2 minutes.
Put the pan into the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the pre-heated oven on 400 F until golden brown.
Tear the Kaiserschmarrn into small pieces, using two forks. Sprinkle butter shavings over the top, add some table sugar, and caramelize in the broiler under high top heat for about 2 min
Lastly, remove from the oven, then arrange on pre-heated plates. Dust with confectioners sugar and if you like, cinnamon.
