Posted for ZWT Germany. From All recipes : "A German dessert that tastes like something in between a pancake and a waffle. It's also good for breakfast."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Beat the egg yolks in a separate bowl until smooth; mix in the milk, sugar, salt, flour, and raisins until just moistened. Fold in the egg whites.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour the batter into the skillet and cook until golden brown; flip and cook until set on the other side, about 1 minute. Tear the kaiserschmarren into pieces using two forks and continue cooking until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar to garnish and serve with applesauce.

Loved it!!! I made 1 serving for my breakfast this morning. Instead of applesauce I used sliced fresh strawberries and some whipped topping. Since there isn't a levening ingredient, very important to whip the egg white to get the right texture. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Photo Tag Game.

We made this for a breakfast treat. I had to readjust my heat setting a few times as these were a bit more heat sensitive than I am accustomed to in “pancakes�. However, the family truly enjoyed them, especially topped with fruit and extra confectioners’ sugar. We used stewed berries and maple syrup since we had some left over from the crepes. Thanks for sharing. Reviewed for ZWT6.
