German Pancakes

The German pancake, also called a Dutch Baby, Bismarck, or Dutch puff is derived from the German pfannkuchen. It is a sweet popover that is usually served for breakfast. My aunt first introduced them to me and I’ve been a fan ever since. I usually serve it with butter and maple syrup, but I’ve also seen it served with fruit preserves or compotes. This is a pretty simple recipe that makes fancy results worth of company.
