Traditional Austrian Kaiserschmarrn

Kaiserschmarrn is a traditional Austria dessert that can also be served as a main course. If you have a look in the internet there are many funny stories about origin of the “Emporer’s mess” and also different kinds of recipes. The one we chose for you is from the head chef from one of our partner hotels in Ellmau at the Wilder Kaiser mountain.

How to make a “mess”:

Ingredients (1 portion)

100g of flour  /  3 eggs  /  1 tsp of sugar  /  1 tsp vanilla sugar  /  pinch of salt

125ml milk  /  100g butter  /  icing sugar  /  handful of raisins


In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Gradually whisk in the flour to make a smooth batter. If you like add some raisins.

Heat a pan and lightly melt some butter. Once the pan is hot enough, pour the batter into the pan and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until the pancake has set and the bottom is golden brown. Turn the pancake and continue to bake. Divide the pancake into pieces, sprinkle over some sugar and a knob of butter. Allow the sugar and butter to caramalise.

Once the pancakes are ready, serve them with apple sauce, stewed plums or as I did it: with strawberries.

Happy cooking and enjoy your meal!
