Recipe

Legend says that this Austrian pancake was created for Emperor Franz Josef. Roughly translated as "Emperor's Mishmash," it is warming and delicious.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs, separated, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup plus 4 tsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • Confectioners sugar, for serving
  • Plum preserves, or apple sauce, for serving

Directions

1. Whisk the flour egg yolks, ¼ cup granulated sugar, and milk together in a bowl with a clean whisk until smooth. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into the batter.

2. Melt 1½ tsp of the butter in an 8in (20cm) nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Pour in one-fourth of the batter and sprinkle with 1 tbsp raisins. Cook 1 minute, until the underside is browned. Turn the pancake and brown the other side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining butter, batter, and raisins.

3. Tear the pancakes into pieces using 2 forks. Return the pancake pieces to the frying pan (or a larger one, if you have it) and sprinkle with the remaining 4 tsp sugar. Cook over medium heat about 1 minute, until piping hot.

4. Sift confectioner's sugar on top and serve immediately, with the plum preserves on the side.

Notes

For a more luxurious dish, soak the raisins in rum for an hour or so.
