Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and transfer noodles to a large bowl.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Stir butter into noodles until evenly coated. Add cottage cheese, 1 1/2 cups sugar, applesauce, eggs, raisins, vanilla extract, and black pepper and mix well; fold in cake mix with candy bits. Pour noodle mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle cinnamon and 1 teaspoon sugar over noodle mixture. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Start watching the noodles at 50 minutes while baking. Overcooking them will dry it out.
