anyone have a foolproof classic noodle kugel recipe?

looking for old school noodle kugel with the raisins and egg noodles..looked through the old posts---mention of not stirring egg before adding, just adding the egg...and some other recipe suggestions that seemed to differ between cottage cheese, sour cream, etc...anyway..would like to hear some current info..doesn't have to be kosher. thanks.

  1. Here's the one that's been used in my family for years. He's one of my favorite cookbook authors - Gil Marks recipes never fail in my kitchen.

    1. Love this. Don't really like raisins in mine, but they could certainly be added.

      Noodle Pudding

      1 lb broad egg noodles
      3/4 stick melted butter
      3 oz cream cheese
      1/2 c sugar
      3 beaten eggs
      1/2 c milk
      1 c apricot or pineapple juice
      1 small can of apricots or peaches, chopped

      1 c crushed cornflake crumbs
      1 tsp cinnamon
      1/4 c sugar
      2/3 stick melted margerine

      Cook noodles, rinse, and drain. Add rest of ingredients one at a time. Mix and pour into a well--greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with topping and bake at 350 for approx 1 hour. Let set for at least 15 minutes before serving.

      1. Do you have access to pot cheese (not farmer cheese, or cottage cheese, or any other)? I don't anymore and haven't been able to make our family recipe properly for years. I'll post the recipe if anyone likes, but for some reason, you really need the pot cheese. I use cut-up apple because I don't like raisins, but you could go either way.

        1. Since I discovered this recipe, this is now my go-to noodle kugel.

          Every time I make this, I get requests for the recipe - surprisingly, mostly from my Gentile friends! I don't use the mandarin oranges and sub. golden raisins instead.
