The instructions/proportions are absolutely incorrect. This recipe as written makes one cakes/loaf, but when I followed the directions to put it into a 10" cast iron pan it absolutely wouldn't fit, so I put it in a 10" dutch oven. It still overflowed and made a big mess in my oven (which is probably why it says in the directions to place a sheet pan in the oven along with the cake). The flavor is pretty good, a good soup bread, but it's going to be a while before I pick this recipe up again (and reduce it by half).
This sounds a nice recipe but I would like to somehow add cheese to the dough...has anyone done this before? or does anyone have suggestion how to adapt it to have cheese in the recipe please?
I love it! So good. I substituted half of the butter with applesauce and the sour cream with a non-dairy cashew yogurt due to family members’ allergies. (For the same reason I use gluten-free flour.) It was still fantastic, and lighter too. Next time I would mix in a little bit of the onions and poppy seeds into the bread itself. I have to cast iron skillet’s but had to put it in a larger pan 13” x 9”.
Yummy, yummy but 36 grams of fat and well over 500 calories PER SERVING?.
I tasted the cake! IT IS SO GOOD! The onion topping really gives this cake a lot of flavor! I took it to the hospital today to share with my Volunteer Resources Office & also the Cancer Registry Office! I'm rating this recipe as a 5* recipe! I have made some adjustments to this recipe, though and here is my adaptation: I used 4 Vidalia onions, chopped, 2 tsp. salt DIVIDED: 1 tsp. for the topping and 1 tsp. for the batter. I used 3/4 cup unflavored yogurt instead of sour cream! I greased and floured the 10" springform pan I used!Please note that I baked the cake for 45 to 50 minutes! seeds The bread came out looking just like the photo! Another thing: Place foil around the pan! My pan did leak! Wrap securely, so that at least the drips will be on the foil! I did put my pan on a large baking sheet! Thank you, Mitzi Sentiff, for sharing your recipe with TOH! I found that I could get a total of 15 slices out of this recipe! delowenstein
The top on this is wonderful. The cake was rather bland. It calls for a LOT of butter and the pan that I baked it on was covered with butter. I will make it again, but will experiment with the cake. Add some extra flavoring (maybe garlic or a little onion stirred right into the dough. I may make the topping again just to use on a grilled hamburger. That is really good.
