We didn’t order it but I have been curious about it ever since. Fast forward to last Saturday. I was visiting Mom in Helen. After lunch at Cafe’ International we strolled through town to a specialty food store called Euro Food where she planned to pick up some plum spread. They carry a strange little assortment of European products, mostly from Germany.
Among displays of chocolates and soup mixes I noticed some large packets….kaiser schmarrn mix with raisins. The shop’s owner described it as a large pancake generally eaten for breakfast. I was eager to try it!
The next morning I carefully read the instructions, which were in German, and prepared the mix with one egg and a cup of Lactaid borrowed from my neighbor LG. I heated and buttered my largest non-stick pan, poured the batter in, and crossed my fingers.
It began to bubble as I pondered how to flip this oversized “pancake”. Before long, it started to smoke so I grabbed my spatula, hoping speed would help it stay intact, and that I could flip it before it was scorched beyond recognition. Success! The next step was to chop it up while it continued to brown. If my German was better I would have realized that the instructions said to cut it into sections, then flip it.
I divided the finished product between two plates for me and LC and sprinkled it with powdered sugar. I served the kaiser schmarrn with turkey sausage patties and fresh fruit. Just slightly sweet, we finished it with a drizzle of faux maple syrup.
All I can say is wunderbar!
Euro Food is located in the heart of Helen, GA at 60 Chattahoochee Street. 706-878-5036
