Although I am a fairly good cook, my kugel always comes out dry. I generally use a combo of cottage cheese and sour cream but I must be missing something because I yearn for the creaminess of other kugels I have had. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Remember that the noodles will absorb so adding more liquid helps with the moisture. The outsides are going to be dry anyway. You may be able to cook it in a water bath like you would for cheese cake. Surround the casserol dish with water 3/4 up the sides while you are baking.You can start by over cooking the noodle so they will not absorb anymore, then add your cottage cheese and Sour cream.
My mother used to make an apple kugel with cinnamon and raisons. I actually made it and served it as an accompaniment for a Fois Gras appetizer for a 5-star hotel I worked at. The chefs loved it and they have actually never had kugel.
I will have to find that recipe for you berna.
