Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
One year my sister went on vacation to Austria, when she came back she told me about something she ate there, called kaiserschmarrn. I think it’s a common breakfast or snack in Austria. A few weeks later she made it for me and I really enjoyed it. Fast forward a few years. Early this year I had a bad craving for pancakes and after trying German oven pancakes, I mentioned the recipe to my mom on the phone. My mom mentioned it sounded a bit like kaiserschmarrn, to be honest they are pretty different, except for the fact they use pancake batter as basis. Which led me to the idea to try to make kaiserschmarrn myself. So I went to pinterest, found a recipe and tried it a few days later. Now I regularly make these. It’s delicious and easy and quick to prepare. And way easier than making normal pancakes, I loathe making normal pancakes, I don’t have the patience for it. So kaiserschmarrn was the ideal solution to me problem. Now when I am craving pancakes I make these.
This recipe is based on Dramatic pancake their kaiserschmarrn recipe.
- Eggs – 2
- Flour – 40 gram/ 1/4 cup
- Sugar – 2 tablespoons
- Milk – 175 ml/ 1/2 cup
- Vanilla Extract – 1/2 teaspoon
- Butter – 1 tablespoon
- Salt – a pinch
- Confectioners’ sugar for dusting – to taste
This recipe feed exactly one person (at least I can eat this as one portion). You can double, triple or quadruple it to make it for more people.
- In a small to medium bowl crack the eggs, add the vanilla extract, flour, sugar and milk. Mix with a mixer or whisk.
- Put the butter in a pan and melt it. Just sue enough butter to cover the pan.
- Then pour the batter in the pan and let it bake for 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes turn the pancake around It’s okay if it falls apart a bit at this stage.
- Let it bake for a few more minutes and then start cutting it into smaller pieces.
- Toss the pieces around and bake till they are a bit brown at places.
- Remove from the pan and dust them with some confectioners’ sugar. Enjoy your kaiserschmarrn!
- Kaiserschmarrn with fruit. You can eat kaiserschmarrn with any fruit, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, jam, compote, apple, applesauce, apple pie filling etc. You can bake it for a bit in the pan during the last step or add it on your plate afterwards.
- Kaiserschmarrn with raisins. Add a few tablespoons raisins for the batter before baking it.
- Chocolate Kaiserschmarrn. Add about 12 gram/ 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao powder to the batter and then bake it.
- Kaiserschmarrn with almonds. Add sliced almonds during the last few minutes of baking the kaiserschmarrn. Or any other nuts you prefer.
- Savory Kaiserschmarrn. If you rather have something savory rather than sweet you could add onion/ cheese and/or bacon during the last step and bake it with the Kaiserschmarrn.
You can combine most of these tips.
