Kaiserschmarrn


Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon, zested, optional
  • powdered sugar, garnish
Preparation
  1. Place raisins and rum in a small, glass bowl and microwave for 25 seconds. Let sit 20 minutes so raisins absorb some of the rum.
  2. In a large bowl or mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Beat in a pinch of salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together egg yolks and sugar until thick and ribbony. Gradually beat in milk, flour and lemon zest.
  4. Fold in beaten egg whites, then let sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Melt butter in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add batter and spread it around the pan, then sprinkle raisins on top.
  6. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Flip and continue cooking.
  7. Break up pancake mixture into bite-size pieces and cook until golden brown.
  8. Dust with powdered sugar and serve hot.
