Kaiserschmarrn, aka Torn or Scrambled Pancakes, are among those homemade pancakes recipes that will remind you of Oma's kitchen. A real traditional German pancake dish that actually stems from Austria. Below are two recipes. The first one is the more traditional one. The second is a quicker, also delicious one. Try them both and see which you like best.
"Schmarrn" is a 16th century German word meaning "to smear" or "to pain". It's difficult to figure out the connection! The sweet version of this German pancake recipe is called Kaiserschmarrn (Kaiser's).
I was asked about this some time ago. Roger was looking for a recipe for Crostedi. I was finally able to track it down as Kratzeti which is the Austrian name for these pancakes and are very popular in the Swabian or Bavarian region of southern Germany.
In response to Roger's question, I posted a recipe for "Kratzeti" as the second one here. It's a really simplified version of this traditional homemade pancakes recipes.
The first is the more traditional recipe for this treat. Served at breakfast, lunch, or a light supper, you'll find it a reminder of Oma's kitchen. Yummy, yummy!
Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
