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 good!

How To Make ~ onion lovin brunch cake ~

    Sift 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.
