Happy 4th of July from France!

Right now I am probably at some museum in France. (Be very jealous.) Anyway, it is the 4th of July, and I will not be able to celebrate our national independence day like I usually would. They celebrate their national day, Bastille Day, on July 14. I thought that I could at least show my national pride by posting this 4th of July card idea on this historical day of independence.

These Austrian pancakes are called Kaiserschmarrn, literally meaning emperor mish-mash. They were first made for the Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph I, and are basically scrambled pancakes. You can serve them with jam, powdered sugar, or fresh fruit. I thought that strawberries and blueberries would be appropriate for the 4th of July.

Kaiserschmarrn
makes one large or two medium servings
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 tbsp raisins
1 egg white
dash of salt
powdered sugar, strawberries, and blueberries

Whisk the vanilla, eggs, and milk together. Whisk in the flour, sugar, and raisins. Preheat a pan to medium heat and melt a little butter in it. Pour the batter into the pan and cook until the bottom is golden, about 4 minutes. Flip the whole thing at once. (It is messy and will break apart. Don't worry.) Cut the pancake with your spatula into bite sized pieces, kind of like you would scrambled eggs. Once both sides are golden, remove from the heat and top with powered sugar, sliced strawberries, and blueberries.

These sure would make a good finally to a meal of good ole American hot dogs and watermelon. Happy 4th!
