My Mom’s Passover Fruit Pudding

Passover Fruit Kugel …this kugel is full of fruit, not too sweet & I think it will be good for breakfast with some yogurt on the side…but I am going to serve it first as a side dish.

The recipe is my mom’s… on a recipe card…in her handwriting so that is special to me. I like making recipes of hers whenever I can…

There is not much to say about the recipe, it is simple to make. Not too sweet & full of fruit, mostly apples, some prunes & the liquid is orange juice! The combination is delicious.

Here is the recipe 


1 lb pitted prunes

1 1/2 c orange juice

4 apples

grated rind of an orange

4 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tbsp oil

2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup matzo meal


Preheat oven to 350f

one 9 x 13 baking dish ,greased

  1. The recipe says to soak the prunes in the orange juice for an hour..but I did not do that…I had not read that before I wanted to cook this kugel…so I just soaked them while I was getting everything else ready….if you have the time go ahead & soak them. My prunes were plump & soft so I guess it depends on what kind of prunes you are using as to how long you need to soak them for!
  2. Peel & dice the apples, set aside
  3. In a large bowl, beat the 4 eggs.
  4. Add the sugar, oil, cinnamon & matzo meal to the eggs & mix well
  5. Mix the prunes & orange juice to egg mixture
  6. Add the diced apples & mix well
  7. Grease the baking dish, I just put some oil in & use a paper towel to grease all fo the dish
  8. Add the kugel batter, spread it out so that it is even in the pan
  9. Bake for 1 hour
  10. Cut into serving size pieces , serve warm

I freeze this kugel & reheat it in a foil pan…

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
