home made onion-bread

There is rarely anything better than a homemade bread with a thin layer of plant based butter. This is why I am always trying to come up with different variations and flavors while baking bread at home to spice this simple dish up a notch.


  • 300ml lukewarm water
  • 1 package of dry yeast
  • 450g whole wheat flour
  • 20g powdered sugar
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • coriander
  • olive oil
  • 1,5 yellow onions
  • 1,5 red onions


  • mix the water with the package of dry yeast and let it sit/rest for about 10 minutes
  • while the yeast is processing mix the following dry ingredients together in a bowl: 450g whole wheat flour, 20g powdered sugar, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp salt, and 1/2 tbsp of coriander (not fresh one)
  • cut the yellow and red onions in rings or thin stripes
  • sauté the onions in a pan with a little bit of olive oil on medium to high heat and with the lid half on
  • season the sautéed onions with salt, garlic powder
  • after the 10 minute resting process mix the dry ingredients with the water and yeast and work the dough thoroughly (to prevent the dough from sticking to your bowl or pastry board add occasionally more flour)
  • after having knead the dough part it in three sections
  • sprinkle a little bit of flour on your working surface and either roll out the dough and fill it with some of the onions OR work the onions by kneading into every one of the three „dough-balls“ separately (this is essential in order to reach a quite frequent spread of the onions within the bread)
  • in the end combine everything to one large bread loaf
  • you can then either put it on the baking paper in your baking pan as it is or roll it out into a huge sausage and then place it in your baking pan in order to have a pretty pattern
  • before baking it I decorated the top with some leftover sautéed onions and sprinkled some more flour on it
  • bake it then in the oven for about 45-55 minutes with 200 degrees
