Insights into female farmers' kitchens and lounges

On 8 September 2013, female farmers from the Ramsau at Dachstein in Styria, Austria organize the walking tour from one farmyard to the next - the so called 'Hofwanderung', with three culinary stops for small dishes (named in Austria 'Jaus'n') like coffee and cake. Some of the farm buildings were built around 500 years ago and even the kitchen recipes are probably not very much younger - perhaps two-three hundred years old recipes that are adjusted for today's taste.

The female farmers from the Ramsau share for the first pre-taste following Blueberry Pancake (Heidelbeerschmarren) recipe (original German version at the end of this page):

The Heidelbeerschmarren (Schwarzbeerschmarren) is a pancake made with freshly picked blueberries.

10 dag blueberries
2 eggs
10 g flour
1 dl milk
icing sugar

Preparation: Separate the eggs. Whip the egg whites with 1 pinch salt very slowly (so the snow is stable and does not immediately coincide) until the mixture is stiff. Mix yolk with flour, milk and 2 tablespoons sugar. Fold the snow gently under the batter. Melt some butter in a nonstick pan. Fill in the dough. Spread the blueberries on the batter. Let it cook shortly in a hot pan, then move it into the 200 degree hot oven and bake the cake ten to 15 minutes, until it becomes golden. Use a fork to partition the cake - such as on view on the photo, into large pieces, slightly push butter and 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar under the tripe and roast it on the stove over high heat until the sugar caramelizes. Powder it with icing sugar and serve it.

For the ones who are interested in hiking in the region, Fashionoffice collected recently information about the history of mountaineering at Dachstein.

German version of the Blueberry Pancake recipe

Der Heidelbeerschmarren (Schwarzbeerschmarren) ist ein Kaiserschmarren mit frischgepflückten Schwarzbeeren:

  • 10 dag Schwarzbeeren
  • 2 Eier
  • Salz
  • Butter
  • 10 dag Mehl
  • 1 dl Milch
  • Zucker
  • Staubzucker

Die Eier trennen. Die Eiklar mit 1 Prise Salz sehr langsam (damit der Schnee stabiler wird und nicht gleich wieder zusammenfällt) steif schlagen. Dotter mit Mehl, Milch und 2 EL Zucker verrühren. Den Schnee behutsam unter den Teig heben. Etwas Butter in einer beschichteten Pfanne schmelzen. Den Teig einfüllen. Die Schwarzbeeren auf dem Teig verteilen. Kurz auf der heißen Herdplatte stocken lassen, dann ins 200 Grad heiße Backrohr schieben und zehn bis 15 Minuten backen, bis der Schmarren goldgelb ist. Den Schmarren mit zwei Gabeln in grobe Stücke reißen. Etwas Butter und 1 bis 2 EL Zucker unter den Schmarren schieben. Auf der Herdplatte bei starker Hitze rösten, bis der Zucker karamellisiert.

Den Schmarren mit Staubzucker bestreuen und servieren.
