Recipe: A quick Kaiserschmarrn
Sometimes you feel like having Kaiserschmarrn and you immediately want to have some. However, when cooking the original recipe, the Kaiserschmarrn takes its time. Here is a quick and especially delicious variation of a recipe for a Kaiserschmarrn, for those of you, who do not want to wait long until they can eat it.
The best thing about Kaiserschmarrn is that you do probably have all the ingredients for it at home. Because you just need flour, milk, eggs, a pinch of salt, clarified butter or oil and you can immediately start. For those of you, who like a bit of variety, you can try a side dish, which is absolutely not traditional. Today we are having kind of a blueberry jam called "Moosbeemandl" in German.
But what is "Moosbeemandl"?
"Moosbee" is a dialect word for wild blueberries.
