Bismarck or Dutch Baby

Sometimes called a Bismarck, sometimes a Dutch Baby, sometimes a German Pancake, and sometimes probably a whole mess of things. What it is is a baked pancake that houses some delicious fruit (if desired), and a warm, soft interior, yet crispy exterior.

Easier and quicker to make than regular pancakes and possibly even healthier because it's sugar free. This naturally no added sugar pancake will please everyone. Other variations include cooked fruit or preserves or plain with a dusting of powdered sugar and or cinnamon. Enjoy!
