¼ cup (40 g)raisins
¼ cup (60 mL)apple juice
¼ cup (60 mL)water
1 Tbsp (14 g)granulated sugar
¼ tspground cinnamon
1 pinchground cloves (optional)
¾ cup (180 mL)aquafaba†
1 tsp (3 g)cream of tartar
2 cups (276 g)all-purpose flour
¼ cup (56 g)granulated sugar
½ tspbaking powder
1½ cups (360 mL)unsweetened soy milk
¼ cup (60 mL)carbonated water
2 Tbsp (28 g)unsalted vegan butter, melted, plus more for cooking
1 tsp (5 mL)
- In a small bowl, soak the raisins in apple juice for 10 minutes.
- Drain the apple juice from the raisins into a saucepan (reserve the raisins for later). Add the remaining compote ingredients to the saucepan as well. Cook at a gentle simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, whip the aquafaba and cream of tartar in a large bowl using an electric hand mixer until soft peaks form.
- In another large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir.
- Add the milk, carbonated water, butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
- Gently fold in the aquafaba and raisins.
- In a medium pan on medium heat, melt a bit of butter, then pour in about half of the batter or enough to cover the bottom of the pan about 1 cm thick. Cook for 5 - 8 minutes, or until the bottom is golden.
- Flip the pancake and let it partly set for 1 -2 minutes, then start to cut it apart into small pieces with wooden spatulas.
- Cook and stir until all the pieces have become golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter.
- Sprinkle over some powdered sugar if desired and serve with the plum compote. Enjoy!
- †If swapping for frozen fruit, use about 2 cups.
- †Aquafaba is the liquid from a jar or can of chickpeas.
- Best to enjoy immediately.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge up to 2 days.

I'm Austrian and I love this recipe. After tearing the dough, I still add a little sugar over it in the pan, then it caramelizes a bit. In Austria it is usually served with 'Zwetschgenröster' a type of Plum compote and whipped cream. (I use oatly) very delicious
I think some of the problems some of the people in the comments had stemmed from the fact they used a medium pan, as instructed, instead of a big one. Honestly the amount of batter is enough to fill the medium pan to the rim twice instead of just cover the bottom twice. I learned from other people's experience and I cooked the pancake in a big pan for twice as long as suggested on small heat and it came out OK. I had it with cherry compote and this batch lasted for three breakfasts. It's not bad but definitely not something I would come back to, just not my kind of flavors. Anyway, I enjoyed making something different for breakfast and that's always a good experience :)
Thank you for this recipe. I‘m German and was looking for a vegan Kaiserschmarrn recipe ever since I went vegan last year. And this one is very delicious and authentic. I made it yesterday and everyone love it. However, my batter was very runny and the Kaiserschmarrn a bit undercooked in the middle. Next time I might use a bit more flour and cook it longer on lower heat.
Chewy on the inside and crrispy on the outside! It was real perfection
I love that you veganised Kaiserschmarrn! Unfortunately mine turned out to be quite sticky inside. Any idea why?
My family is of German descent so I made this for my dad's birthday. It was a hit! We had it with rhubarb jam. Spectacular! My only complaint is how can I make more at one time or at least often. I like chickpeas, but I really don't want piles of them just to get the aquafaba. Is there another way? 🤔
Thanks you Sadia! Fabulous work!
I have tried multiple Kaiserschmarrn recipes in the past and this is my new favorite!
Soft and chewy yet fully cooked through - which has been a problem with my past tries - and with a lovely crust.
We had them for breakfast this morning and ate the whole batch (2 persons). ;D
Dit was echt een perfect recept. Heerlijk mee ontbeten. ruime porties 😋 en snel klaar
Thank you, it’s exciting to see new recipes!! It would be amazing to know how to make the apple sauce you’ve mentioned
There are 2 teams in Austria when it comes to Kaiserschmarrn. Team 1 prefers thr dough with raisins (soaked in liquid - preferably Rum - for a couple of hours). Team 2 without. They would never marry outside their group 😉.
Hey there, again,
i made this for my daughter (10) and her friend (9) for lunch after a soup today. I thought "hm, that's a very big batch, I will have a good portion for myself as well". They ate almost everything and there were only few bites left :-D! And the friend is Austrian (we live here) and clearly she only knows the original version with dairy and eggs. Clap-clap, Sadia and Team! :-)
It was delicious!!
Loved that these were crunchy on the outside with a nice warm and soft texture on the inside. We made it with a strawberry compote and it was delicious!
Had everything to make this for Sunday brunch, and it was a huge hit! Thanks for exposing us to new cuisines PUL!
Around the world dishes. What a good idea! Something that I would love to see veganized is choux pastry. Chocolate elairs, cream puffs and gougere used to be high on my list of favourites. Now I've absolutely no idea how to replace the eggs...aquafaba? Tofu? Flax eggs??? What do you think?
