Austrian specialty: Kaiserschmarrn

Austrian specialty: Kaiserschmarrn

If I had to translate it, I'd call Kaiserschmarrn the "emperor's pancakes".

It's called Kaiserschmarrn after Emperor (Kaiser) Franz-Josef of the Austrian-Hungarian empire (1830-1916) because it was his favorite dish.

It's got the same ingredients as American pancakes: flour, eggs, milk, sugar but it tastes much different and I cannot explain why or how. It's incredibly yummy.

It is topped with powered sugar and often served in a skillet with some kind of fruit compott like apple, prune or cranberry sauce.

It's the favorite in the mountain lodges throughout Austria.
