The Kaiserscharrarnt Recipe

Unexpected omelet Inconspicuous word"Kaisershmarrn" is translated very pomposely - the imperial omelet. Do not judge that the type of dish is also far from special beauty. Once the Emperor Franz Joseph I tasted the taste of this omelet, and since then he became a favorite Austrian dessert, especially popular in Vienna. The dish even has its own legend. Allegedly, the emperor, lost on hunting, came to the forest lodge, he was very hungry, and the mistress had only eggs, flour and a handful of raisins. I decided to bake a cake. To the dismay she had collapsed into pieces during cooking, she had to serve as it is, but the hungry monarch so much liked the dish that, upon returning, he ordered the cook to master the preparation of this omelette. Since then, it is called the Kaiser omelet. At once it is necessary to specify, that "omelet" here has a little other value, than habitual to us. As the culinary specialist from Switzerland explained to me, omelettes are everything that is beaten with eggs and roasted, that is, our pancake pancakes are also omelettes, so the Kaisershmarrn looks more like our pancakes than an omelette in our usual sense. Traditionally, the Kaiser-Stern is served with plum compote, sometimes complemented with puree from apples or plums, but this dessert with tea, milk, coffee is also tasty.
