Food of the week

Kaiserschmarrn is actually an Austrian recipe, but we like to borrow from on another every now and again. This dough is quite similar (if not the same) of the pfannekuchen but the process of making this meal is different in the end. You can create this for the main course (which is what I like to do) or you can have it for dessert!! 



  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
  • plum preserves for serving


  1. In a small bowl, combine raisins with rum and let soak 30 minutes then drain.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, white sugar, vanilla, and salt. Gradually whisk in the flour to make a smooth batter. Stir in the drained raisins.
  3. In a large skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Pour the batter into the skillet and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until the pancake has set and the bottom is golden brown. Turn over the pancake and cook 3 minutes, or until this side is also golden brown. Using a spatula or two forks, tear the pancake into bite-size pieces. Drizzle in the melted butter and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Turn up the heat to medium high and use a spatula to gently toss the pieces for 5 minutes, or until the sugar has caramelized. Sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar and serve with plum preserves.
