Sweet Noodle Kugel with Apples Raisins

First posted in September of 2017….

This sweet noodle kugel with apples & raisins ( you can omit the raisins if you don’t like them!)  is a family recipe of my friend Pnina. I am so honoured that she shared this recipe with me. Perfect for this time of year when there is an abundance of apples….but don’t limit yourself to just eating it now…it is perfect for anytime!

With the Jewish New Year approaching, we eat apples, apples dipped in honey,  pomegranates, honey cake, sweet foods….all in hope of a sweet new year ahead. But, don’t just eat it at this time of year… & you don’t have to be Jewish!!! Perfect as a side dish with any protein & good on its own too! It is sweet, the apples & raisins mixed with cinnamon combine to make this really delicious.

1 400g pkg of egg noodles

2 apples

brown sugar

raisins

Here is the recipe, with thanks to Pnina for allowing me to share it on this blog!

Ingredients

1 pkg egg noodles ( 400 g)

2 apples

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup oil

2 tbsp honey

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup raisins

1 tbsp flour

2 tbsp cinnamon

Method

Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish  *** OPTIONAL:   I like to pour in about 3 tbsp of oil into the baking dish… smear it all around the baking dish…& then PREHEAT the oven to 350f…put the oiled baking dish into the oven when it is preheating,…..take the baking dish out of the oven when the oil gets hot…then I put the noodles into the hot baking dish. You dont have to do this step… you can just put the noodle mixture right into a greased baking dish without warming it up first…

  1. Boil the noodles until soft, drain & set aside
  2. While the noodles are cooking,  Mix the brown sugar, oil & honey together in a bowl & set aside
  3. Peel & grate the apples, set aside
  4. Once the noodles are cooked, put them into a large bowl
  5. Add the grated apples
  6. Add the brown sugar, oil & honey
  7. Add the beaten eggs
  8. Add the raisins
  9. Mix well
  10. Sprinkle the flour & cinnamon over the noodle mixture & mix well
  11. Pour the noodle mixture into the prepared baking dish
  12. Bake for about 1 hour until brown… if you like it more brown, Pnina says to lower the oven & keep the kugel in until it has a nice dark colour with burning it…so you will have to watch it closly!  I baked it for 1 hour, lowered the oven to 300f & kept it in for approximatley 30 moire minutes..but sorry… I lost track of the time it was in the lower temperature..
  13. Cut into squares to serve…

You can make this ahead, cool completely, cut into squares, then freeze until you want to serve it… Cover with foil to reheat…

Enjoy!

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!
