Vegan Austrian pancake “Kaiserschmarrn”

a classic sweet dish pimped with salty pretzels and chocolate

Have you ever had Kaiserschmarrn? This cut-up and sugared pancake with raisins is one of the most famous classics of Austrian cuisine. The sweet dish, often served as a dessert, is simply delicious, super quick to make and can be pimped to your liking. For example, our vegan version today actually contains salted pretzel in addition to apples and raisins. This becomes especially fantastic when you combine the torn pancake pieces with a great dip made from our new iChoc Salty Prezel Chocolate and more pretzel pieces. With this in mind, we wish you bon appétit the Austrian way: “An Guadn!”


For a large pan

For the dough

  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 80 ml mineral water
  • 1 tbsp apple vinegar
  • 300 ml soy milk
  • 200 g wheat flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 30 g sugar
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1 small apple, cut into pieces
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 3-4 salted pretzels, broken into pieces

For the dip

  • 1 bar iChoc Salty Pretzl chocolate
  • 2-3 salted pretzels

In addition

  • some margarine
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • some icing sugar

How to make it

1. For the dough, mix the baking powder with the mineral water and vinegar in a bowl. Add the remaining dough ingredients, except for the apple pieces, raisins and pretzel, and mix with the beaters of the hand mixer until smooth.

2. Melt some margarine in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan and spread the apple pieces, salted pretzels and sultanas over the top. Bake with the lid on for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown on one side. Use a spatula to lift the batter in between and make sure that the batter does not burn.

3. Divide the pancake into four triangles, turn them over and fry the other side until golden brown. Then tear the triangles into pieces with two spatulas. Add 2 tbsp sugar and caramelise for 1 minute, turning.

4. Melt the chocolate carefully in a bain-marie. Coarsely chop the pretzels and mix into the liquid chocolate or sprinkle on top. Dust the Kaiserschmarrn with icing sugar and serve with the dip.
