    /* Only for information, not part of the recipe!!!
    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

    Oven temp?
    by: Gerhild

    Joachim, your recipe sounds delicious AND easy. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    I notice that the oven temperature isn't given nor the size of the baking sheet.

    Would love to have those so I can make this as well. Looks so good!

    Blessings,
    Gerhild

    Many Thanks

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I cannot wait to try it out. I had a neighbor many years ago on an Army base that made this frequently and she always saved me a piece. We both moved on and I never got her recipe. Thank you again.

    It is very similar to mine but I use some beat up egg whites at the end and mix it up gently with all the ingredient comes out wonderful.

    That sounds like a wonderful addition to the recipe.

    Question about quantity of flour
    by: Anonymous

    Would you please clarify the amount of flour? I don'the understand 4,4 oz. What is the command after the 4? What is the totalking for flour???
    I am sorry, I do not understand ... round higher, if you have to .. so I understand. do you mean 4.5 oz?

    =========

    Hi Anonymous!

    Sorry about the confusion. In German, the period is replaced with a comma ... so, the amount that Joachim wrote is actually 4.4 ounces. When I convert that, I get it to be approx. 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

    Hope that helps.

    That piece looks like it came out of a 9 1/2" pie pan.
