Kaiserschmarrn with Stewed Plums
Kaiserschmarrn is not only delicious, but also extremely popular – in Austria and beyond. It is actually a warm dessert but it is also often served as a main course. For good reason, because it is a fluffy, wonderfully fragrant and, above all, heavenly tasting dish!
- 4 eggs
- approx. 125 ml milk
- 125 g flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- raisins (according to taste)
- 4 tbsp butter (soft)
- icing sugar (for dusting)
- rum (optional)
Directions for Kaiserschmarrn
- For the Kaiserschmarrn first of all separate eggs. Mix milk, flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and egg yolks well and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
- Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks have formed and fold into the mixture. Stir in raisins.
- After that, heat half the butter in a pan. Pour in the mixture and cook on medium heat until golden brown. Turn the mixture onto its other side, add the remaining butter and roast the second side until this, too, is golden brown.
- Last but not least, tear the mixture into pieces and briefly roast again.
- Before serving, dust the Kaiserschmarrn with icing sugar and finally serve with stewed plums for the classic version.
Raisins which have been stewed in rum gives the Kaiserschmarrn a very special taste. This is an impressive dish when served classic-style, with Stewed Plums:
HISTORY OF KAISERSCHMARRN
There are many stories concerning the “Kaiserschmarrn”. The name apparently stems from Emperor Franz Joseph I. One story claims that the cook at the royal court was making pancakes, which didn’t turn out as they should have done and so he served the emperor this Kaiserschmarrn with a little icing sugar and raisins instead. Another tale says that the emperor was served pancake when he stopped at an inn and after this it was named after him.

THE WORLD OF RIESS
It is cut and scratch resistant, easy to clean and does not change the taste of the food prepared in it – porcelain enamel has many advantages. The RIESS family, who lived in Austria, thought the same thing almost a long time ago when they began making tableware from this easy-care material in 1922.
Handmade with LOVE…
… this thought applies not only to us when we are cooking, but also to RIESS. The RIESS-Emaille manufactory in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel is the only cookware manufacturer in Austria and meanwhile the family business is well known far beyond its borders. In addition to kitchen utensils in classic white, there are pots, strainers, bowls, cups and the like in delicate pastel colours as well as animal and flower designs – so there is something for every taste.
The various products of „RIESS-Emaille“ made it all over the world to cult lifestyle objects.
