  • Melt half the butter in a 12-cup mold or tube pan. Swirl it around the bottom and up the sides.
  • Press the brown sugar into the bottom and press the pecans into the sugar.
  • Boil the noodles according to the package directions and then drain. Mix with the eggs, the remaining butter, melted, cinnamon, sugar, and salt and pour into the mold.
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the top is brown. Let sit for 15 minutes before unmolding. The top will become slightly hard like a praline. Serve cold or at room temperature.

  1. My first Kugel attempt. Wonderful!
  2. Hi ev, made your kugel which is the same I used to make years ago but I would add cream cheese to it. It is marvelous! We made 2 of your kugel and another by dojemi & there were some leftovers but those were sent home with some of the family members. It was delicious! It looked so pretty when served and it tasted great! Everyone kept saying "how beautiful"! Thank you for posting, Diane :)


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
