Recipe by Chef Dudo
Made this dessert kugel for the first time last Passover. Found the recipe on the net and it was very well received. I used cooking pears and even though they take longer time to cook I like that better since they do not mush up too much. You can easily make half the recipe, I did, and then used a round baking tin.
- 2 lbs apples, tart (Granny Smith)
- 1⁄2 lb pear
- 6 ounces cranberries (half a bag of frozen cranberries)
- 3⁄4 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup white wine or 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup white sugar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 6 eggs
