Kaiserschmarren / Austrian Pancake

Kaiserschmarrn is a light, caramelized Austrian pancake made from a sweet batter with flour, eggs, sugar, and milk. Usually this pancake is accompanied by apple compote.

  • 3 Eggs
  • 150 g All-purpose flour
  • 30 g Sugar
  • 240 ml Milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g Raisins
  • 30 g Butter
  • Icing sugar
  • Apple compote (optional)
  1. Separate the egg whites from yolks. Thoroughly mix the yolks, sugar, and milk. Add in the flour and again mix well.

  2. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat until stiff. Add stiff egg whites into the dough and fold carefully.

  3. Melt butter in a large pan, pour in the dough and sprinkle in raisins. Let cook on one side for a few minutes, turn over and fry the top side until golden brown. Tear the pancake into pieces. Be careful not to overcook the pancakes, otherwise they will dry out. Sprinkle powdered sugar and serve with apple compote if desired.

These look wonderful! I grew up with traditional American pancakes and the occasional baked German puff pancake. Then my husband got me making thin German pancakes like his mom's. I make buckwheat ones for my son as well. I'd love to add a fifth kind of pancake to my repertoire. I'll give these a try soon!

hi Maggie,
These Austrian pancakes are really really good. Since I am not a potato fan, so I prefer Amercian pancakes to German Kartoffelpuffer, Kartoffelpfannkuchen.
