Kaiserschmarrn are thick pancake pieces studded with raisins that you eat slathered with custard or fruit sauce. These Austrian pancakes aren't just a dessert: they are satisfying enough to make a good meal.

Vegan Kaiserschmarrn


Adapted from this recipe, in German
Serves 2


375 ml flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
250 ml soy milk
125 ml soda water
vegan margarine
a few handfuls raisins or sultanas
icing sugar
applesauce or vegan custard (optional)


1. Combine the flour, sugar and baking soda in a bowl. Add the soy milk and soda water. Mix well.

2. Heat some margarine over medium heat in a pan. Pour in half the batter and sprinkle liberally with raisins, avoiding the edges of the pancake. When the top has set, turn and cook the other side. Take out of the pan and chop into pieces. Return to the pan and cook for a minute or two more.

4. Add a little more soda water to the remaining batter if it's too thick. Add more margarine to the pan and cook the second pancake.

5. Sprinkle pancakes with icing sugar and serve with applesauce or custard.
