A question about a recipe: French Onion Tart


I have a question about the recipe "French Onion Tart" from Jennifer Perillo. Is there are a reason why a springform pan must be used?

It's easier and prettier to present a tart when it's baked in a springform pan, but I don't happen to have one, so I always use my porcelain quiche/tart dish. If you grease and flour the pan the tart should slice and come out with ease.

This recipe is very forgiving -- just about any tart, cake, or pie pan would probably work! As you can see in the photo, we used a copper pan (which I think is meant for tarte tatin) -- it worked beautifully.

I'm going to list a couple of questions that other people have had in the hopes of getting some answers too:

Can you substitute white flour for wheat?

Is cake flour the same as pastry flour?

Do we have to use seltzer?

What's a good substitute for sherry?

I'm guessing the cheese isn't mandatory?

Thanks in advance!
