I have never heard of this dish, so looked it up! Very interesting! Did yours have the plumped-up rum soaked raisins in it? I will have to get the recipe for it and experiment one weekend.
I did include soaked raisins, and also soaked chopped dried apricots.
I've based on this recipe:
(in German, but the ingredients list is easy to understand). I used vanilla extract (2 teaspoons) instead of vanilla sugar, light brown sugar instead of white. Egg whites whipped and folded with the batter, poured into a hot wide buttered pan then baked (the recipe calls for flipping it in the pan, which would never had worked with such a foamy batter).

I looked it up, too, but only got people named that and an asteroid. So what is it? Looks intriguing!
Simply put, it's a very fluffy custardy pancake torn into pieces.
I feel sad for those poor people (and astronomical objects), being named "emperor rugs"
Edit: I'll also point you to this beautiful (as always) preparation by @BonVivant who had also made this dish a few days ago:
