Kaiserschmarrn – An Austrian Shredded Pancake

One of my favourite moments on a dreamy vacation last year, was eating an outdoor Christmas market lunch on the grounds of Vienna’s Belvedere Palace. We had a piping hot plate of cheesy spätzle that tasted like grown-up mac and cheese, followed by warm, sugary Kaiserschmarrn (or ‘Emperor’s Mess‘), a light and fluffy pancake that’s torn or chopped into bite-sized pieces, dusted with liberal amounts of icing sugar and in that festive market, served with either applesauce or stewed plums. It was carb-y, heavenly and exactly the kind of winter food I was there for. I’ve been waiting to try it at home and after a couple of attempts to get it to the way I liked it, I’m here to say this is the perfect slow weekend breakfast!

For the pancake
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature 
  • 3 tbsps caster sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature (60 ml)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (40 gms)
  • 2 tbsps unsalted butter (salted threw off the balance a little but if it's what you have on hand, omit the salt in the batter instead)
  • Icing sugar for serving, approx 1/4 cup

For the plum sauce
  • 225 gms ripe plums (7 to 8 seasonal Indian plums; the darker ones are sweeter)
  • 3 tbsps caster sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon powder
  • Pinch of clove powder
  • 1 tbsp water, optional
