Rebecca's Sweet Lokshen (Noodle) Kugel

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
SERVES: 12-24




  • Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling water, according to package directions. Rinse the noodles with cold water and let drain in a colander.
  • Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the vanilla, sugar, sour cream, softened cream cheese, cottage cheese, and applesauce and beat with an electric mixer until combined.
  • Use a wooden spoon to stir in the drained noodles, nutmeg, cinnamon, raisins, and melted butter, mixing well to coat.
  • Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture evenly into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. I transfer the kugel to a foil-lined baking sheet to catch any overflow.
  • Make the topping: in a medium bowl, combine the crushed frosted flakes (or cornflakes) with enough melted butter to moisten. Add a little cinnamon if you like.
  • Spread evenly over the top of the kugel.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 350F degree oven for one hour.
  • Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes, checking frequently to make sure top does not burn (cover if top is getting too crispy, and bake until done).
  • Let kugel cool slightly before cutting into squares to serve. Makes 12-24 servings (depending on size of squares). May be eaten warm, cold, or at room temperature.Enjoy!
