Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Cut the onions in half, then into slices about ¼” wide. Separate into pieces.
  • If using any of the meats, prepare them and set them to the side.
  • If using the cheese, measure and set to the side.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of butter in a 9 to 10 inch oven proof skillet. Turn the heat to medium. Sauté the onions, stirring occasionally, until softened and they begin to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove onions from skillet. Melt remaining butter in the skillet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and return the onions to the pan, covering the bottom. If using meat, sprinkle meat over onions.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. If using cheese, add to the dry ingredients. Whisk together the egg, milk, and oil until thoroughly combined. Add to the dry ingredients and stir together quickly, but completely. The batter is very thick, almost like a biscuit batter.
  • Spread the batter over the onions. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out dry. The top of the bread will not brown very much at all. You need to depend on the toothpick.
  • Let stand for five minutes. Place a serving dish slightly larger than the skillet over the top of the bread and turn over like an upside down cake.
  • Serve immediately with the onions on top.
  • Serves four for dinner. Eight to ten if using as an appetizer.

    I thought this was perfect! I made it exactly as written, using cheddar cheese and bacon. I love the caramelized onions and the light, fluffy bread! Not to mention that its a very easy bread! In 1 hour you have a delicious side dish or appetizer! I had no problem with the bread browning, as you can see in my photo. I will use this recipe often!

    P.S. I didn't use a cast iron skillet. I used an oven safe non stick skillet.

    I was expecting more from this bread. With all the savory flavorings it didn't have that much flavor. I'm stumped.
    Used hard salami and the meat ingredient.
    Made a picture for you and it looks delicious.
