I was unsure how to cook these as I made a recent trip to Germany for the first time but only saw Kaiserschmarrn from a mix. So it was great to find this recipe! They cooked up beautifully and were just like I remembered. :) Thank you!

These were really good. I reduced to half a recipe and topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream (from a can). Thanks for sharing the recipe.

What a delicious lunch I just had, thanks to you Syd. Thanks for sharing this recipe. This quick and easy to make recipe is excellent. The pancakes are light, fluffy, tender and full of flavor. I garnished my pancake with fresh stewed strawberries and a little icing sugar.
