I learned a version of this recipe in Home Economics Class, many years ago...I created this one, I added the addition of bacon, as bacon is good anytime. I used vadalia onions, but can use any sweet onion...so good!

How to Make ~ Onion Lovin Brunch Cake ~

Step-by-Step

  • 1Slice onions, trying to keep all about the same thickness , a mandolin works great and is so quick.

    Over medium heat, in a large skillet, melt butter and add onions and pinch of thyme, can also lightly salt if you wish. Saute until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
  • 2Sift flour, salt, onion powder and baking powder together.

    Cut into flour, 3 tablespoons, butter, until crumbly. Into this add 1/2 cup milk, beat with a fork, just until incorporated, about 18 strokes.

    Spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

    Spread out batter evenly in bottom of dish. I lightly spray the top of batter and use an offset knife for this, whatever's easiest for you.
  • 3Preheat oven to 450 degree F.

    Spread onions evenly over batter and then sprinkle with cheese.
  • 4Mix egg and mustard with milk, beating well. Pour over onions and cheese.

    Top with bacon.
  • 5Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Don't overcook.

    Let set up for 5 minutes, then cut into squares. Salt and pepper if desired.

    Enjoy this scrumptious dish.
