Emperor's Pancake (Kaiserschmarrn)

Preparation: 10 mins
Baking: 18 mins
For 2 servings


    • 150 g flour (type 405)
    • 225 ml soy milk
    • 3 tbsp. rapeseed oil
    • 5 tbsp. aquafaba1
    • 30 g sugar
    • 2 tbsp. vegan butter
    • 20 g raisins
    • 1 tbsp. icing sugar
    • Salt


    • In a bowl, whisk the flour with soy milk, rapeseed oil and a pinch of salt until smooth.
    • In a second bowl, using a mixer, beat the aquafaba1 and sugar for 5 minutes until stiff.
    • Then gently fold the stiff aquafaba into the batter.
    • In a skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of vegan butter over low-medium heat until foamy. Then spread the batter in the pan and sprinkle the raisins on top.
    • Bake it without stirring on the bottom side for about 8 - 10 minutes. When the batter can be removed from the bottom of the pan as a whole, turn it over with the help of a plate and flip it. Then bake the second side for another 5 minutes.
    • In the pan, carefully tear the dough into small pieces using two wooden spoons. Finally, stir in 1 tablespoon of vegan butter and toast for another 2 - 3 minutes on all sides until golden brown.
    • Serve with icing sugar.

Worth knowing

1 Aquafaba is the viscous cooking water of chickpeas, white beans or other legumes, e.g. from a tin can. Due to its characteristics it can be whipped like egg white.
