Sourdough Kaiserschmarrn Recipe (Austrian Shredded Pancake)

Kaiserschmarrn is one of the most famous dishes from Austrian cuisine.

The sourdough version is even better, and here’s how to make it!


– sourdough starter – sugar – eggs – milk

In a mixing bowl, combine the starter, eggs, sugar, milk, flour, and salt. If you have vanilla extract and cinnamon on hand, add them to the mixture as well.


Cover with plastic wrap or any airtight wrap. Let it ferment for 4 - 8 hours, or even overnight if your house is very cold.


After the fermentation, we are going to start the cooking process. At the end of fermentation, you should be able to spot tiny bubbles on the surface of the batter.


Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet and wait for it to sizzle on medium heat. Then pour the batter into a hot pan. Cover with a lid.


Put a handful of raisins in a small cup. Heat up 80 milliliters of rum and pour it over the raisins.
