Caramelized Red Onions, Apples, Bacon and Gorgonzola Loaf


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium red onions thinly sliced crosswise
  • cups Silvana's Kitchen Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup non-hydrogenated canola oil or grapeseed oil
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • large apples—peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese plus more for topping
  • 3 slices bacon chopped and cooking until crisp


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and caramelized, about 25 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, oil and eggs. Stir into the flour mixture until smooth. Fold in about 1 of the apples, blue cheese and about two-thirds of the bacon. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and top with the remaining half apple, blue cheese and bacon. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Let cool completely in the pans, set on a wire rack.
