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."
- 4 eggs, separated
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2⁄3 cup raisins (optional)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 2 cups applesauce (optional)
- 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.
- 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 â€œpancakesâ€�. However, the family truly enjoyed them, especially topped with fruit and extra confectionersâ€™ sugar. We used stewed berries and maple syrup since we had some left over from the crepes. Thanks for sharing. Reviewed for ZWT6.
