It has always been a mystery to me how they get the Schmarrn on Austrian mountain huts so FLUFFY. Thanks to my last birthday present I could have a little peek behind the scenes. The magic is to make the Schmarrn in the oven and not on the stove. After baking it then gets caramelize in a pan. And there it is – the authentic Austrian ski hut feeling! Can’t wait for our skiing trip this year!
