“Kratzede are the Badenian version of Austrian "Schmarrn". The regions of Breisgau, Ortenau, the Black Forest and some Upper Rhine towns once were part of Outer Austria, so the cuisine is strongly influenced by Austrian cooking. A fluffy pancake is torn up with the spatula after firming up in the pan. The scrapings can be eaten either as a dessert topped with powdered sugar like "Kaiserschmarrn", or plain with asparagus and sauce Hollandaise. For sweet Kratzede, add 1 tablespoon sugar to the batter. For savoury, add salt to taste.”
