This turned out very nicely. I used 1/2 cup of real butter(margarine is terrible for you) 1/2 cup less sugar used 1/4 cup more reduced fat sour cream used chunky spiced applesauce from trader joes softened the raisin in the boiling water with the noodles and used almost a cup of graham cracker powder and 1 tsp cinnamon mixed with 4 table spoons of melted butter and sprinkled that mixture on the top instead of on the bottom. I baked for 50 minutes. Next time I might even cut the sugar some more. I think the graham cracker "crust" prevented the noodles from getting dry and burnt. The crust was a nice golden brown - no burning. Read More

This kugel is the third recipe I've tried so far and I just can't seem to find one that I like. The first two were not sweet enough and this one was too sweet. I used cranberry applesauce and more lemon juice because I like it tart but I think I will cut down on the amount of sugar next time. Also will cover with foil next time because the top part of my noodles "crispified" (burned). Thanks for sharing though. Read More

I have never liked noodle puddings but a favor to my mother inspired me to try this recipe - success! She called it the "best kugel I have ever had in my entire life." I still don't like most kugels but this has become one of my favorite year-round dishes. I use only 1 C sugar 8 oz of chunky applesauce soaked sultanas (golden raisins) and no graham crackers crumbs. It is far less sweet and creamy than most kugels this way and it really emphasises the appley-cinnamon flavour. Read More

I brought this to a Yom Kippur break fast and people couldn't get enough! As suggested I cut the sugar and used unsweetened apple sauce. My only complaint was the graham cracker crust turned a bit soggy--perhaps something else would have been better texture-wise. Read More

Really excellent recipe. I left out the sour cream because I hate sour cream and used milk and it did not change it all. It was so good and everyone ate it within minutes of it coming out of the oven! Read More

This was my first try at kugel and it turned out perfectly. It was very easy and delicious. It also kept well in the fridge for a few days as we finished it. I will definitely make it again. Read More
