Noodle Kugel

This is the kugel my mother made every Friday night when I was growing up, adapted from my great-grandmother's recipe. It's not the dairy overload of most kugels and, made with margarine, can be served with a kosher meat meal. Note that it's a main course side dish, even though it looks very sweet. You can use other fruit/spice combos like pear, plums or peaches with ginger.

    I made this kugel as a side dish for pork chops. Since I was also serving baked apples, I left out the raisins and apple. It was delicious! A perfect accompaniment.

    Our whole family thought it tasted good, but it didn't hold together like I expected. Next time I think I'll double it, but add an extra egg (3 total).

    very like the kugel I make-sometimes I add dates & apricots and it is always successful. When my daughters were little they picked out the fruit...but not today!

    Very good. The flavor of this was excellent - the buttery flavored noodles and the nice chunks of hot apple, along with the apple pie spice made this taste like an apple pie.MMMMM. I used approx 3 1/3 cups of dry noodles.

    This is delicious, but it is still pretty sweet for dinner. Usually I try to match it with something light or sour-ish for some contrast, or I skip dessert (maybe). I'm not a raisin person so I always leave them out, still very tasty.
