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.
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.

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.
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!).THE tasting platter to spoil your mum on Mother’s Day.Click To Tweet
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.

Addictive Scrambled Pancakes for Food Sharing
- 2 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cups raw sugar
- Pinch of salt
- Blueberry jam
- Lemon juice
- Raw sugar
- Cacao dates
- Whipped cream
- Matcha powder
Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the sugar, then make a hole in the centre and crack in the eggs.
Start stirring with a wooden spoon from the centre, slowly adding in the milk.
Mix until you have a smooth, semi-runny consistency.
Leave for 10 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of the mixture. Once they appear, you're good to go!
Set a large frypan on medium heat and melt a small slice of butter to add flavour and prevent sticking.
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.
Once flipped, use your spatula to cut pancake into strips vertically then diagonally to create small pancake 'pillows'.
Continue cooking until gloriously golden brown and crispy.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve with desired toppings.
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).
