How to cook

Step 1: Soak the raisins in water
Soaking the raisins in water aims to make the texture of the raisins more supple and soft for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: Make the kaiserschmarrn pancake batter
Crack the eggs and separate the whites and yolks.  Mix the egg whites until fluffy and stiff.  Set aside.

Mix egg yolks with flour, butter, vanilla, sugar, milk, and a little salt, and beat well, no need to expand.  After that, add the beaten egg whites little by little until beaten the egg whites run out.

Step 3: Add the raisins to the batter
If desired, you can chop the raisins beforehand so that the raisins can spread evenly on each pancake batter.

Step 4: Fry the pancakes until cooked
Grease with butter a round pan with a size of about 24 cm so it doesn't stick.  Add the batter and fry until almost done and golden.  Flip the pancakes so that they cook evenly and then slice them into small pieces on the pan.  Bake until all parts are completely cooked.

Step 5: Add the toppings then serve the kaiserschmarrn
Drizzle the kaiserschmarnn with caramel or powdered sugar, add some berries and it's ready to be enjoyed.  You can also eat it with apple jam.
