Challenge: Emperor’s Nonsense

Liz is spending Christmas in Bavaria and apparently got overpowered by their southern traditions. For this week’s challenge she wanted to make Kaiserschmarrn. It is a puffy, caramelized pancake made from a sweet batter. Supposedly the dish was first prepared for the Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph I in the 19th century. His wife Elisabeth of Bavaria was obsessed with maintaining a small waistline though. Of course she found this heavy pancake dish too rich and called it „Schmarrn“ (nonsense). I call it delicious.

So here is the recipe:

35g butter (1.4 ounces)

4 eggs

250g flour (2 cups)

1/2 liter of milk (2 cups)

1 handfull of raisins

1 hint of salt

some powdered sugar

30g sugar (2 table spoons)

Mix flour, sugar, salt, milk and egg yolk into a batter. Beat the egg whites until stiff and add to batter. Heat up the butter in a pan and pour the batter in. Sprinkle the raisins over the batter after a couple of minutes. Bake on low heat, turn and pull the dough into small pieces. Bake until golden. Sprinkle the powdered sugar over and optionally serve with fruit.

    • Ana, you should really try Kaiserschamrrn. It’s very easy and tastes SO good!

  1. Hahaha, so funny you translated this! My boyfriend is English and when I took him skiing to Austria this winter I obviously made him try all the Mehlspeisen goodness of the Alps. I translated the name of this dish to a similar but slightly less classy „The Emeperor’s Bullshit“ (which was not exactly appreciated by the waiter :-))
