All Easy Recipes. Cook all that you can cook. Broken Pancakes
(Kaiserschmarren)
 
This is the story they tell to explain the origin of these pancakes. One day, when the old Emperor Joseph was out hunting in the Tyrol, he went into a mountain peasant's house and asked for a meal to be served. .But the girl making the sweet was so nervous at cooking for the Emperor that she broke the pancake in the pan, and burst into tears. To cover up the mistake, her mistress broke the whole pancake into small pieces, and served it as a "special dish." The Emperor graciously declared himself very pleased with the dish, which was henceforward known as "Kaiserschmarren," or literally - Emperor's fragments!
