Nutrition Tips

To reduce potassium in Kaiserschmarrn, you can leave out the raisins – it will still taste great!

Stewed plums is the classic accompaniment to Kaiserschmarrn in Austria, but it also tastes great with other dishes or as a hot or cold preserve. Pour off the juice before serving to reduce the amount of potassium.

Kaiserschmarrn is also delicious with cranberries or, of course, apple sauce.

Directions

For the Kaiserschmarn:

You usually make Kaiserschmarrn in a frying pan, but it takes a bit of practice to get the right temperature and time. Here is an easy recipe for oven Kaiserschmarrn that also tastes great.

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Separate the eggs.

Beat the flour, milk, vanilla sugar and salt with a balloon whisk until smooth. Mix in the yolks one by one.

Whisk the whites with the sugar until stiff and carefully fold in to the mixture.

Heat the butter in an oven-proof pan (or in a casserole with a large base). Pour the mixture into the pan and sprinkle over the raisins.

Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the pan/casserole and quarter the mixture, turn over the quarters and bake for another 10 minutes.

Remove the pan/casserole and cut the Kaiserschmarrn into small, bitesize pieces (using a fork or fish slice), dust with the sugar and return to the oven to caramelise slightly.

Remove from the oven, arrange on plates, dust with icing sugar and serve.

 

For the stewed plums:

Halve the plums and remove the stones.

In a saucepan, boil the water, sugar, lemon juice, half cinnamon stick and cloves (TIP: place in a tea ball or bag).

Add the plums and return to the boil, stirring all the time. Keep boiling until the plums start to fall apart.

Remove the spices.
