World Cuisine Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, everyone.  While I was deciding on what to post today, I realized that we’ve not yet had a breakfast dish!  Therefore, today I will be sharing with you a recipe from Austria for butter rum pancakes.  Yum!

Kaiserschmarrn ‚Äì (Emperor’s Mishmash)

¼ c powdered sugar, plus a little extra for dusting
1 c flour
¼ c white sugar
1 tsp salt
¬Ω c raisins
5 eggs
¼ c rum
1 c milk
¬Ω tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp melted butter
Fruit preserves (fruit of your choice) for serving

Pour rum in a small bowl and soak raisins for approximately 30 minutes.  Drain.

Beat eggs, milk, white sugar, vanilla and salt together in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in flour until smooth, then stir in rum-soaked raisins.

In large skillet, melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat.  Pour batter into heated skillet and cook 5 minutes, or until bottom side is golden brown.  Flip and cook other side until golden brown.

Using your spatula, cut pancakes into strips and pour the melted butter over them.  Sprinkle with the powdered sugar and increase the heat to medium high. Turning the pancakes often, cook until sugar has caramelized.  Garnish with the extra powdered sugar and serve with preserves.

On your next visit to Innsbruck, maybe you will find a favorite new dish to serve as a reminder of your excellent time in this beautiful country.  Just imagine taking a few early morning runs and finishing up with some warm butter rum pancakes après ski at the lodge. What a perfect way to start your day!
