Upside-down Caramelized Onion Pan Bread



  • a drizzle of oil
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 2 large Onions, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups all-purpose Flour, or half-purpose, half whole wheat
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup whole Milk
  • 1/4 cup Well Seasoned Olive Oil
  • 1 large Egg


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large overproof skillet, set over medium heat, melt the butter, with a drizzle of oil. Saut the onions until they are soft and golden. Transfer the slightly caramelized onions to an 8 or 9" round cake pan or pie plate that has been greased.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, stir together the milk, oil, and egg. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  • Spread the batter over the onions and bake for 35-40 minutes, until pale golden around the edges, cracked on top, and springy to the touch.
  • Cut into wedges and serve warm.
