How to Make Amish Onion Bread


  • 1In a large skillet, cook onions in 1/2 cup butter over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the poppy seeds, salt, paprika and pepper; cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 2In a bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder and sugars.

    Cut in 1 1/4 cups butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. ( I use my food processor).
  • 3Melt the remaining butter. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sour cream and melted butter.

    Make a well in dry ingredients; stir in egg mixture just until moistened. Spread into a greased 10 inch springform pan. Spoon onion mixture over the dough evenly.

    Place pan on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Serve warm.
