TopfenkaiserschmarrnTopfenkaiserschmarrn

Kaiserschmarrn may not be a dish specific to Tirol, but it is definintely one of the Austrian classics and can be found on the menu in restaurants and huts throughout the land. There are many different ways of making it. My personal favourite is with a sweet dairy product known here in Austria as "Topfen". You can also serve a number of side dishes with it. In this recipe we learn how to make the classic plum jam often served alongside Kaiserschmarrn.

Let's be honest, one of the most important ingredients for an unforgettable holiday is good food. That's why here on blog we invite you to discover some of the classic dishes from Tirol and have a go at making them yourself. Some of the recipes come from top chefs from restaurants throughout the region. One of them is Mario Döring from the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol in Buchen, who has been kind enough to share his recipe for Topfenkaiserschmarrn with plum jam.

To make the Kaiserschmarrn, start by separating the eggs. Beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff. Then beat the egg yolks with the sugar and the zest and juice of a lemon until frothy. Mix the milk, a little salt and flour and finally carefully fold in the "Topfen" with the beaten egg whites.
