This is better than any bread pudding!!! This is best served at room temperature, yeah right, just try and wait that long, you will have it half gone before it even reaches room temperature LOL! it is THAT good, try this, you will LOVE IT! Dried cherries can be used in place of the dried apricots and raisins can be replaced for the cranberries, I use Ocean Spray Craisins when I make this! If you prefer a less sweeter kugel then reduce the white sugar to 1-1/4 cups or less.
