Onion Bacon Cake with Filling (1939)


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbspns sweet milk
  • Pinch of sugar and salt
Mix all ingredients gently as you would regular pie pastry. Place in refrigerator until the dough handles easily. Roll out dough about 3/16-inch thick, and put in 8-inch pie tin with straight sides. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees until almost done, about 10 minutes.

  • 6 strips bacon
  • 4 onions
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tspn chopped chives
  • 1/4 tspn caraway seeds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Dice the bacon finely and fry until crisp. Remove from fat and drain. Dice onions finely and fry in bacon fat gently until done, but not brown. Drain off fat.

Beat together eggs and egg yolk. Add to cooked onions with other ingredients and crisp bacon. Mix well and pour into pre-baked pastry.  Sprinkle caraway seeds on top of filling. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees to 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
