Cookbook: Zwiebelkuchen 

Zwiebelkuchen, which literally means onion cake in the German language, is a one-crust savory cake made of steamed onions, diced bacon, cream, and caraway seeds on either a yeast dough or a leavened dough.[1] It is particularly popular in the German wine-growing regions mostly of Rhenish Hesse, the Palatinate, Franconia, Baden and Swabia (a similar pie called Flammkuchen is also eaten in Alsace), or a quiche variant in Switzerland, traditionally eaten in Basel during the Carnival and in Bern for the Zibelemärit.
