Vegan Kaiserschmarrn isn’t just any recipe, it’s just awesome that it’s finally online. My husband tormented me for months with his constant inquiries. When will there finally be a vegan Kaiserschmarrn? If only it had been that easy, because I tested at least over 20 different variations, recipes and my own ideas. With egg substitutes, aquafaba and other contortions. Finally, I landed on this favorite recipe. It’s easy, fluffy, quick to make and leaves you wanting more. Of course, the raisins must not be missing, or how is it with you? Are you a fan of raisins or not? Let’s go, let’s go together.
Vegan Kaiserschmarrn – also in gluten-free?
I tested the Kaiserschmarrn extensively with spelt flour, but of course I don’t want to leave my gluten-free community out in the cold. The good news is that this delicious recipe also works gluten-free, with no sacrifices. I substitute my gluten-free flour blend for the flour and add 1 tsp carob bean gum for a better binding.
For the spelt flour version you only need 5 ingredients, spelt flour, baking powder, maple syrup, sunflower oil or another high heat oil and plant milk. Stir it all together and off it goes into the pan. Once the dough is lightly browned on the bottom, use a spatula to divide it into 4 pieces and flip it over. Traditionally, the dough is torn into pieces at the end, briefly baked further and the traditional Austrian dish is ready.
TIP: If you want to really chunk it up, you can caramelize your Kaiserschmarrn. To do this, add 1 tablespoon of vegan margarine and 1 tablespoon of raw cane sugar to the pan at the very end and toss the dough pieces in it.
Vegan sweet main dish easy to make yourself
The only question is whether a Kaiserschmarrn is also healthy? My honest opinion? Yes and no! Basically, I think that there is no such thing as an unhealthy food. It always depends on what the basic diet is. A Kaiserschmarrn is certainly not something that comes on the table every day. Every now and then, however, you can treat yourself to a portion of the Austrian classic without a guilty conscience.
Beautiful alone in the selection of ingredients, you can make a lot of things healthier. Coconut blossom sugar or maple syrup instead of raw cane sugar, mix spelt flour with whole spelt flour. These would be examples of increasing the health benefits of the dish. However, from my point of view, Kaiserschmarren is mainly about one thing and that is enjoyment.
Well, do you already know what’s coming next? Yes, guessed exactly right! Troubleshooting. What can go wrong during production?
Here we go:
- Do not let the pan get too hot. We do need temperature to cook the dough, but not too much. I set the stove to level 6 out of 10 to give a rough setting. Too much heat will burn your underbody and the junk will end up in the garbage can.
- Your pan is not well coated and/or you have not greased it. This leads us to the next fatal point, the dough sticks to the pan and cannot be turned over. I use a Teflon-coated pan and am very satisfied. TIP: Better grease a little more instead of letting it stick.
- Impatience! Kaiserschmarrn is not a pancake, because it takes much longer to cook. Allow time and leave in the pan for a few minutes even after flipping. There is nothing worse than a half-cooked Kaiserschmarrn.
Vegan Austrian recipes
Otherwise, nothing can really go wrong. The question of whether with or without raisins still needs to be clarified, of course. By the way, a scoop of vanilla ice cream also goes very well with it. Together with a Golden Latte, hot chocolate or Pumpkin Spice Latte, you almost feel like you’re in heaven.
The vegan Kaiserschmarren is:
- Pleasantly sweet
- soft inside and crispy outside
- Easy to make
