Breakfast? Brunch? Dessert? Well, it was dinner tonight! This is a treat. I *did* double the pineapple. It would have tolerated more, too. Fabulously delicious. 15yo dd requested kugel & thank you, Chia, for having a recipe available!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and place in a 4-quart bowl.
  2. Put cream cheese and ½ pound butter in food processor; blend until smooth, scraping down sides. Add 1 cup sugar and process until well combined. Add sour cream, vanilla and eggs, and process until well mixed. Fold into bowl of noodles. Stir in pineapple.
  3. Grease a 13-by-9-inch Pyrex dish with about 1 tablespoon butter and pour in the mixture; it will almost overflow. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Remove from refrigerator about 1 hour before baking. Preheat oven to 350 and bake mixture for 50 minutes.
  5. Combine walnuts with remaining 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle on top of kugel. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons butter and bake another 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, cut into 25 pieces.
