    TJW's Note:

    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.

      I had a hard time with this recipe due to the measurements. I tried my best with several metric conversion websites, but the proportions were a bit off. Still, it was a nice hearty dish. The bacon added a very good touch. The egg/creme fraiche sauce was good although it made way too much. Next time, will cut down on the sauce and add a bit more seasoning. This is very much like a pizzaladiere. Thanks for posting!!!

      I can't follow this recipe because the measurements are not in teaspoons, tablespoons and cups. Sorry, I don't understand .08 of a lb. Please translate this into American measurements, because I need to make this onion cake.
