zwiebelkuchen southwest german onion cake


this is a traditional late summer early fall snack, usually served with 'new wine'. it is not a sweet cake, but a nice hearty fall weather dish. i got this off a german website and translated it into english. this recipe is very good, and you will not be disappointed! good for a potluck, or even a party snack.
