This is my homework for this week, it comes from Vienna, the Capital of Austria:
Imagine a broken pancake, that tastes so good, that an emperor loves it and wants it again and again. This is Kaiserschmarrn. If you translate it into English, it means Emperors rubbish.
Kaiser Franz Joseph I. really loved this sweet dish, which was created by a serving accident.
You can eat it with powdered sugar, with apple sauce or plum compote.
- 4 eggs
- 140g flour
- 250ml milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 125g raisins
- powdered sugar
First you separate 4 eggs into yellow and white. Put the yellow in a cup and the white in a bowl.
Beat the egg whites stiff. (That is frightening loud!)
Add flour into the bowl with the yellow part of the egg, then also add milk, sugar, and a little bit of salt. Mix it well.
Carefully add the beaten egg white and the raisins.
Now ask your mom or your dad to heat a pan to a medium temperature (it’s a 5 on our 1-9 scale). Put butter into the pan and let it melt.
Then fill in the dough and wait, until it is light brown below.
Turn the pancake. No problem, if it breaks into pieces, this will be the result anyway. When there is no liquid dough anymore, tear the pancake into bite-sized pieces.
Serve with powdered sugar.
Enjoy your meal!
