Delicious Kaiserschmarrn is as much a part of a holiday in Tyrol as genuine hospitality is of Hotel Singer. Why not try it at home?
Ingredients for Singer’s Kaiserschmarrn (serves 2 or more)
- 250g flour
- 500g milk
- 6 egg yolks
- 6 egg whites
- Rum sultanas (can also be omitted depending on your preference)
- Vanilla sugar (to taste)
Put the flour and milk in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and add them to the batter with the rum sultanas. In a separate bowl, mix the egg whites with the vanilla sugar until soft peaks form and carefully fold into the mixture.
Melt some butter in a well-coated, ovenproof pan, add the batter and pre-bake on the stove until golden brown.
Then place the pan in the oven and bake at 180°C with top and bottom heat for 20 minutes.
Afterwards, break into pieces using a spatula, place on the stove again, and caramelise the butter and sugar. Serve and enjoy!
PS: At Hotel Singer, one of the best luxury hotels in the Austrian Alps, we like to eat it with icing sugar, apple sauce, and/or stewed plums.
