A heavenly, decadent kugel recipe that I have had since my college days when my roommate begged several vendors at a San Antonio Oktoberfest to share their delicious kugel recipes with us. From these recipes, we combined and created our amazing Lieblich Noodle Kugel. I have taken this dish to countless events with family and friends, and it receives rave reviews every single time!

  • Combine the cottage cheese, pineapple, and apples; set aside. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and set aside.

  • Spread one-third of the noodles onto the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread with half of the cottage cheese mixture, and sprinkle with one-third of the cinnamon sugar. Layer with another third of the noodles, and the remaining cottage cheese. Sprinkle with another third of the cinnamon sugar and the remaining noodles. Mix together the white wine and melted butter; brush onto the noodles. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until apples are tender.

Although the kugel tasted very good the noodles fruit and cottage cheese never bound together in the way that I think of when I think of kugel. I used whole wheat noodles but I wouldn't think it would make a difference. Who knows. In any case I wouldn't make this again and would look for something with more of what I consider to be the traditional kugel consistency. Read More

This kugel didn't hold together (as the other reviewer said) because it has no eggs (possibly mistakenly left out of the recipe). Kugel is basically a noodle pudding or custard and needs eggs to set. Otherwise you just get baked cottage cheese and pineapple with noodles. Read More
