    I want to email your article on Schmarrn to family…We have made it for years & just met a cousin for the first time from Canada who went crazy when we mentioned “schmaun”…neither one of us could figure out how to spell it, our Mom’s just made it & my husband makes it all the time & we’ve never had to figure out how to spell it…if you are able to forward your article above so we can share it with our “new cousin”, we would appreciate it!

    I love Kaiserschmarrn. I usually call it Kaiserschwanz in mixed company though, just for the laughs that it generates.

    I did try it from a mix once, and it was edible, but I couldn’t cook it properly. We wound up with the outside cooked right but the inside still liquid- my Ameri-brain solution? The microwave oven, of course! Worked like a charm, too – the inside was cooked properly without further blackening of the outside.

    The reaction of my Bavarian colleagues upon hearing that I used the microwave to finish cooking the Schmarrn mixture was kind of priceless.

      We don’t have a microwave, but I did ponder tossing it in the oven at one point. I quite like the stuff and will try again. I just need more patience and lower heat instead of trying to speed cook it and burning bits. Also, it needs plenty of butter to cook in. Not a low-fat thing.

      I can well imagine their reaction. I think of perhaps a similar face as I explain to Germans about the American concept of aresol based Cheese.

    I love Kaiserschmarrn. I am German, so no wonder. I’d love to try that mixture 🙂 You just made me hungry!

      The mix was pretty good. I just need to learn how to cook it right. It is better than the pancake mixture.

    Hilarious 🙂 It was tasty, and I’m sure it’ll be better next time without the burnt bits.

      Yup. We will try it again before we head out.
