"Kaiserschmarrn, also known as the Emperor's Pancakes, is one of the most famous Austrian desserts. It is a lightly caramelized pancake with a sweet taste and fluffy texture. After living in Vienna, Austria, for almost two years, I've had my fair share of Kaiserschmarrn, and it is one of the best desserts that Austria has to offer."

  1. Sift flour, sugar, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Pour the milk slowly into the dry mixture while stirring. Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating until well blended before adding the next egg yolk.
  2. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl; beat until egg whites form stiff peaks. Gently stir 1/3 of the egg whites into the batter. Fold in the remaining egg whites.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in an 8 inch skillet over moderate heat. Pour in half the batter and cook about 4 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Loosen edges and slide pancake onto a plate using spatula. Invert the pancake back into the skillet and cook until both sides are brown, about 2 minutes. Remove to a warm platter and keep warm.
  4. Make the second pancake the same way. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.

I'd never heard of Kaiserschmarrn, so I don't think I have a good basis to judge it. But for those of you who think you might like to try to make it, have plenty of bowls on hand. My kitchen w...

Not too bad. it would be better to divide the recipe into fourths instead of half to make the cakes. also could use some fruit sauce.

not too bad but it may be better to make smaller cakes (divide into fourths instead of half). It would probably be better with some sort of fruit sauce.

I made these, in fourths, then sprinkled them with regular sugar and cinnamon. A fruit compote also goes well.
