Depending on a question about Zwiebelkuchen from Sheila Baker Baughman on June 14. I'll give you my recipe. It's no German original, it's self-developed (the original is with a shortcrust instead of a yeast dough) but tastes like all other onion tarts here in Germany */
German origin: Zwiebelkuchen
