The BEST kugel ever. I'm not Jewish but have a lot of Jewish friends, and they love this recipe! Good as a side dish, breakfast, dessert or snack!

This was easy and outstanding. However, I did make it low in fat. I used 3 egg whites in place of the whole eggs and I used 1/4 cup of applesauce in place of the oil.I sprayed the pan instead of greasing it. Then followed the recipe. It was great served warm from the oven and wonderful cold,too. It's a keeper! Read More

I also made this recipe according to the directions and it was not good. Only one person in my house ate it and they doused it with cream and sugar and ate it like cereal. Very bland. I wouldn't suggest it. Read More

This kugel was absolutely delicious! I changed the scale for 20 people because I had a large crowd this past Passover. This recipe called for 8 eggs but because we watch our fat I used 4 whole eggs and 8 whites. I also used a little more raisins and added the juice and rind of one orange. I think because of the sweetness of the orange I might use a little less sugar next time. My crowd dosen't usually eat sweet kugel but they devoured it. It was light moist and extremely tasty. This will definitely be the kugel I make for all my future Passover dinners. Read More

Excellent! So easy to make and tasted awesome! I did substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for the oil (I try to cook using less fat) and gave the top of the kugel a dusting of cinnamon before putting it in the oven. Will definitely make again and forward on! Thanks!!! Read More

Our family and guests like this so much I've now made it the last two years. I followed the recipe slavishly but needed to cook it 10 minutes longer. Also next year I'll decrease the amount of sugar if the apples and raisins are again so sweet. Read More
