BISMARCK (or incorrectly, Bismark)

A Bismark is a jelly filled yeast doughnut that Berlin has been famous for dating back to at least the early 1800s.  It is also known as a 'Berliner,' Berlin doughnut or Long John.

     I have not been able to find any specific information as to exactly when 'Bismarck' became used as a name for this doughnut, but since Otto von Bismarck was the architect and first chancellor (1871-90) of the German Empire, and Berlin was the capital of united Germany it is an easy step from 'Berliner' to 'Bismarck', since Bismarck was Germany.
