Ingredients for onion tart
250g plain flour
7g dried yeast
125ml lukewarm milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 kilos red onions, thinly sliced
55g bacon finely diced
1/4 teaspoon caraway seed
3 egg yolks
1) Use a 28 cm spring form tin or pastry flan; grease the tin. Place flour in the bowl and make a well in the centre. Sprinkle the yeast onto the milk. Pour into the well in the centre. Sprinkle yeast onto the milk. Pour into well; sprinkle flour from the sides. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
2) Add 1 tbsp butter and the salt to yeast mixture. Knead into a dough. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Knead vigorously for 10 minutes; leave to rise for a further 30 minutes.
3) Preheat the oven to 220C (gas mark 7). In a frying pan, heat remaining butter and fry the onion until transparent. Whisk the eggs in a bowl; stir in the onions.
4) Roll out dough to lint the tin. Pour in the mixture; sprinkle with the bacon and caraway seeds. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 180C. Combine the egg yolks, a pinch of salt and the cream. Pour mixture over tart; bake a further for 50 minutes.
