Cholermüs – Swiss Pancake

Susan Feliciano


I had to do some internet research to find out what this was. I first heard the term on The Big Bang Theory, S3/E15, with Sheldon talking about something I heard as "hill air mousse."
Cholermüs is a Swiss omelet-type pancake, heavy on the eggs and light on the flour. It can be served filled with fruit, as I did, or filled with cooked bacon, ham, or vegetables for a dinner meal. Not hard to make at all. The food processor helps to incorporate air into the batter and totally mixes all the ingredients. This is my own recipe, based on what I learned about Cholermüs.

How to Make Cholermüs – Swiss Pancake


  1. BATTER: Combine eggs, salt, milk, cottage cheese, flour, honey, and oil in food processor or blender. Process until smooth.
  2. Heat butter in a 9- or 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour one-fourth of batter about a half-inch thick into bottom of pan. Cover and cook until top loses its gloss, then flip over and cook the other side until lightly browned.
  3. Carefully remove to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with rest of batter until 4 large pancakes are cooked. These pancakes will be slightly fragile, so use care not to tear them.
    Combine apples, butter, honey, and cinnamon in a small pan. Heat over medium heat until apples are cooked through.
    Place one pancake on serving dish. Top with half of filling. Place second pancake over top of filling. Dust with confectioner’s sugar. Prepare second pancake the same way. Each stacked cake serves 2 people. Cut and serve accordingly.
