Servings 12


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 10 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 packages frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained 10 ounces (Get all water out with paper towels)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Melt the butter and pour melted butter into your cake pans and spread with a towel to cover the pan on all sides.
  • Then, beat eggs in a bowl.
  • Now add flour, milk, salt, and baking powder.
  • Dice your onion.
  • Defrost the spinach and squeeze out ALL water with paper towels. I just left my spinach in the refrigerator overnight and it was all defrosted!
  • Now add spinach, onion and grated cheese to the mixture. I used my Bubbe’s grater! Bubbe uses white cheddar, but I accidentally bought yellow. Use what Jew like. Potato, potahto.
  • Mix that sucker up and pour into the two buttered 8-inch cake pans evenly.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cool and cut into 6 triangles per pan.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
