  1. Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Beat the egg yolks in a separate bowl until smooth; mix in the milk, sugar, salt, flour, and raisins until just moistened. Fold in the egg whites.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour the batter into the skillet and cook until golden brown; flip and cook until set on the other side, about 1 minute. Tear the kaiserschmarren into pieces using two forks and continue cooking until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar to garnish and serve with applesauce.

It tastes exactly like it says. My family loved it. I wasn't fond of it though. I wanted to make a German pancake and this recipe came up in the selection. I chose it because the kids were starving and I didn't have 40 minutes to cook the other in the oven. Flipping this over was an accomplishment to behold. Next time I would use smaller pans to make it easier to flip. If you are looking for a light and thin German pancake...this is not it. However, it is a great alternative to the regular pancake. Have fun with it. Add some vanilla or other favorite flavoring. Enjoy!

Well, I thought this was a breakfast food not dessert; so that was my first mistake. A little of the yolk got in my egg whites, so those didn't whip up properly. But I didn't like the flavor; too sweet and they just didn't have any.....density to them.

this recipe is good, but the way i've had it before is scrambled. this eliminates the need to flip. also, add cinnimin and leave out the rasins. tastes good with yogurt and fruit to cut the sweetness

Good. My 16 year old daughter made this for her sisters for breakfast. They sprinkled powdered sugar on it, and drizzled a little bit of syrup.

I used this as a base recipe and added carrots, nuts, banana, and oatmeal. I used 2 tbs peanut butter and no regular butter. I got 8 large, fluffy pancakes.
