Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We nearly finished our scholarly paper and will submit it middle of this week. 🙂

I have to survive a two day long meeting and then my well-deserved vacation will start.

The last days I spent more 12 hours or more in the Lab to get the last missing data for the Paper. I shocked our cleaning lady regularly when I entered the building at 6.50 am. She does not expect somebody saying “Good Morning” to her at this time of the day.

Because I spent so much time in lab there was nearly no time for cooking or baking. But I still get delicious dinners because the boyfriend take care of cooking. One evening, when I was still in the train station on my way home, I told him what he would need for an onion tart and he prepared the dough. When I came home the dough had risen finely and we prepared the filling together.

Onion tart


  • 250g flour (Typ 550)
  • 160g Water
  • 5g fresh yeast
  • 5g Salt
  • 15g olive oil


  • 400g red onions
  • 100g cream
  • 1 Egg
  • 50g grated cheese
  • 1/2 Tsp. Caraway seeds, crushed with a mortar
  • allspice
  • Salt

Knead all ingredients for the dough 5 min at slow and 5 min at fast speed.

Let the dough rise for 1 hour (or over night in the fridge)

Peel onions and slice finely. Cook them in a pan at middle temperature untill golden. Take from heat and let cool down a little bit then mix with cream and eg. Season with crushed caraway seeds, allspice and salt.

Roll the dough thinly and line a Quiche form (Diameter 24 cm) with the dough. Fill in the filling and top with grated cheese.

Bake at 180°C for about 35 min.

Because this tart is baked with yeast, I send it to Susans weekly Yeastspotting.

    Bravo to your boyfriend! And best of luck with your paper. As with all your baked goods, your tart looks delicious.

    This recipe sounds really good. I haven’t tried making a Zwiebelkuchen myself because my boss makes such really good ones. I think I will give your recipe a try.
    I hope you won’t mind if I tell you this, but piment is allspice in English.
