I was a little skeptical about making this recipe. Maybe because the name implies that it's a dessert. Although it does have a cake like quality about it, it's for sure a savory food with the large amount of sautéed onions. And the poppy seeds, paprika, and sour cream gives this Amish Cake an absolutely wonderful and distinctive flavor.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon dark brown sugar, packed
3/4
cup sour cream
3/4
cup milk
5
eggs
1
tablespoon baking powder
1
tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2
cup cornstarch
4
cups all purpose flour
salt and pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons paprika
1
tablespoon poppy seeds
2
cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter
3/4
medium onions, chopped

Directions

  • 1 Cook the onions gently in 1/2 cup (1 stick) of the butter for about 10 minutes. Stir in the poppy seeds, paprika, salt and pepper and continue to cook until the onions are golden brown. Set aside.
  • 2 Mix together the flour and cornstarch, granulated sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Add 1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) of the remaining butter and rub in to make soft crumbs (this can be done in a food processor). Add 3 of the eggs, one at a time, mixing in well, then add the milk to form a sticky dough.
  • 3 Beat the last 2 eggs with the remaining 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter. Whip in the sour cream and the brown sugar.
  • 4 Grease a 10-inch round cake pan. Spread the dough in the pan. Cover with the onion mixture and the sour cream mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 350° F for 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly, and serve in wedges
