The origin of our love affair for these addictive scrambled pancakes came around by complete accident.

Orrrr… You know. General kitchen disaster.

Whatever you want to call it.

You see, we’d had this brilliant idea for a weekend getaway that would include an epic pancake breakfast feast.

We’d brought all the ingredients, a huge jug of maple syrup, sugar, the works.

What we DIDN’T think about was what kind of cooking equipment we’d have access to in the cabin.

Our troubles started when we realised we’d completely forgotten to bring butter or even oil, and the only pan in the kitchen was, to use the technical term, Extremely NON Non-Stick.

What we needed was a large non stick fry pan like this which we now use at home.

But you can be damn sure we forged ahead anyway because PANCAKES, even if it was a flippin’ mess.

Mainly because those pancakes stuck to the pan like there was no tomorrow, and attempting to flip them at all really didn’t work.

There was no way to get them off the pan in any kind of solid shape resembling a pancake, and before we knew it, they’d become well and truly scrambled.

Oops?

Now, this could have been a disaster. We could have wrung our hands and thrown the lot in the bin.

But in reality, all our noses could focus on was the smell of sweet, fluffy pancake filling the entire cabin.

All our eyes could see was the crispy, golden goodness, even if there was a lot more of it than you normally find on a pancake.

So we popped the scrambled bite-sized pieces onto a plate, sploshed on a heap of maple syrup, grabbed our forks and got stuck in.

And it was brilliant.

Addictive Scrambled Pancakes For Food Sharing

Oh the gloriously tasty bite-sized deliciousness.

We told all our friends about this brand new and completely unintentional creation of ours, then discovered shortly afterwards that it’s oddly similar to an Austrian/German recipe called Kaiserschmarrn.

When translated to English, Kaiserschmarrn means ‘Emperor’s Mess’. The original recipe was first baked in the oven then finished in a frypan and torn apart with forks before being dusted with sugar and served with a sweet fruit dipping sauce.

We accidentally took all the hard work out of it by scrambling the pancakes (or daintily cutting, if you’re more like Sarah) right in the pan using a spatula.

Because it’s so deliciously simple and much fun to make, we’ve shared our scrambled pancakes with new friends in guesthouses and homes all over the world now.

They’re pretty much guaranteed to taste better anyway when shared with friends, family (or even your mum for a special Mother’s Day breakfast, brunch or dessert, hint hint!).

Every time we made it, the combination of toppings kept getting better and better.

The newest addition to our Official List of Scrambled Pancake Toppings was Cocoa Dusted Dates.

Just slice a handful of dates and dust liberally with cocoa powder. Snag a few slices onto your fork along with a piece of pancake, dip in maple syrup and smother in whipped cream. This is sweet tooth heaven on a whole new level.

Now, back to the list. Here’s a few suggestions based on our tried and tested experiments get you started on your scrambled pancakes adventure.

Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Wandercooks Creation
Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cups raw sugar
  • Butter
  • Pinch of salt
Optional Toppings:
Instructions
  1. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the sugar, then make a hole in the centre and crack in the eggs.
  2. Start stirring with a wooden spoon from the centre, slowly adding in the milk.
  3. Mix until you have a smooth, semi-runny consistency.
  4. Leave for 10 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of the mixture. Once they appear, you're good to go!
  5. Set a large frypan on medium heat and melt a small slice of butter to add flavour and prevent sticking.
  6. Pour in two spoons of mixture, approximately 8-10 cm in diameter. Gently cook until bubbles start to pop on top, then flip over with a spatula.
  7. Once flipped, use your spatula to cut pancake into strips vertically then diagonally to create small pancake 'pillows'.
  8. Continue cooking until gloriously golden brown and crispy.
  9. Transfer to a serving plate and serve with desired toppings.
Notes
When you flip the pancake, by the time you're finished cutting it into pillows, it should be cooked perfectly. If it takes you a little longer to cut through them, just take it off the heat for a minute.


Cocoa Dates are a fantastic <g class="gr_ gr_166 gr-alert gr_spell gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling" id="166" data-gr-id="166">chocolate-alternative</g> to have on the table. Just slice pitted dates finely and roll them in natural cocoa powder.

We recommend eating these scrambled pancakes with forks or chopsticks (or fingers if you're feeling extra naughty).

  1. What a glorious travesty! I usually feed my messed up pancakes to my dogs but no more! Scrambled pancakes are freakin brilliant! And, I’m so loving how they are actually an “Austrian/German recipe called Kaiserschmarrn.” Brilliant!

    • Wandercooks

      Oooh haha I feel a teensy bit sorry for your dogs now, sounds like they’re gonna be missing out from now on! We were almost disappointed to realise we weren’t truly the first to discover/create scrambled pancakes, but when we discovered the name Kaiserschmarrn we just couldn’t be sad haha – ‘Emperor’s nonsense’ indeed. 😅

  2. Such a happy accident! It’s always good to discover something new when the original creation goes belly up. These definitely look moreish!

      I think that’s why cooking’s so much fun – it can lead to some amazing discoveries. And most of the time they’re edible! 😅 That original, sorry little pile of pancake scraps definitely won our hearts over haha. 😛

  3. These look really good and love that they are bite size for sharing.

  4. What a way to go – to turn a pancake disaster into a pancake delight! I love the look and sound of your little puffy pillows of pancake rags oooo. I would have my favourite – blueberries cooked with a little maple syrup until they pop and the syrup thickens, and eat them like you do with fondue – litle rags dipped into that glorious goo! 😀

      Ah, love fondue! You’ve just made scrambled pancakes even more epic! 😍 Oh we love the sound of that blueberry maple syrupy goodness Jo, that’s definitely going on the list for next time! 😘

  5. A hundred years ago the royal chef of the emperor of Austria created a similar dish which is known these days as Kaiserschmarren (emperors nonsense). Your scrambled pancakes just reminded me of the delicacy and that I should make it sometime again. 🙂

      Haha I love the name ‘Emperor’s Nonsense’! It perfectly suits this frivolous dish. Definitely hope you’ll make it Helene. P.S. What’s your favourite topping? 🙂

  6. Recipe says use a medium SAUCEPAN, should that be FRYPAN?

    • Wandercooks

      20/09/2016 at 10:34 am

      Hahaha absolutely Donna! Thanks for that, we’ve updated the recipe now. 😛

    I have eaten the Kaiser’s Mess in Vienna – with whipped cream and plum compote. Excellent!

    • Wandercooks

      11/07/2016 at 11:58 am

      Ah well that’s super lucky Jan! We didn’t find it while we were there, but having them with whipped cream and plum compote sounds absolutely divine! 🙂

  8. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS! I seem to be either really awesome at flipping pancakes or really ridiculously woeful so I think that scrambled pancakes DEFINITELY need to be a celebrated thing! Plus, bite sized pieces are always better!

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 3:53 pm

      Bring on the scrambled pancakes celebrations! Even though pancake flipping is definitely Sarah’s forte, even I’m at least capable of achieving these bite-sized morsels of IM-perfection! 😀 hahaha

  9. Such a cool idea. You made eating pancakes even more fun!

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 8:44 am

      Who would have thought such a disaster could lead to such deliciousness??

  10. Great way to make lemonade out of lemons or scrambled pancakes. Sounds like a fun breakfast.

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 8:43 am

      Breakfast, brunch, dessert, dinner – we’re not fussy! 😀

  11. Scrambled pancakes – genius! Pancakes, but bite-sized, I love it!

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 8:42 am

      Oh so do we Marsha, so do we! It’s almost disappointing eating normal pancakes now! Definitely not as fun 😛

  12. These look so cute! What a great idea! 🙂

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 8:42 am

      Golden brown pillows of pancake heaven, it’s almost the definition of cute 😛 Hahah

  13. I’ll have to share this with my son so he can make this a fun thing to do with his family. Very cute story and hey, I wouldn’t have thrown those pancakes out either!

    • Wandercooks

      27/04/2016 at 8:39 am

      Thanks Shelby, and I mean who are we kidding? Pretty sure we’d eat pancakes no matter HOW they turned up on the plate haha. Hope your son enjoys the scrambled pancake fun!
