Easy Pareve Apple Noodle Kugel

Kugels-FPOThis recipe first appeared in my Entree to Judaism for Families cookbook.  I taught this recipe when I met with the young Jewish community in Warsaw which is why ingredients and amounts are listed in Metric and non-metric amounts. 

4 large eggs

¼ cup corn oil or other flavorless vegetable oil (60 ml)

½ cup unsweetened applesauce (120ml)

¼ cup brown sugar (60 ml)

12 ounces egg noodles (340 g.)

2 unpeeled apples, Fuji, Gala or any other sweet variety available

¾ cup dark raisins (180ml)

2 Tablespoons sugar mixed with ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Additional oil for greasing pan


  1. Lightly grease a 2 quart (2 liter) casserole with some additional oil. Preheat the oven to 350F (175 C.)
  2. Using a wire whisk, whisk together the eggs, oil, applesauce and brown sugar in a 4 quart (3.5 liter) bowl until thick and creamy.
  3. Core and cut the apples into sections and the sections into 1 inch (2.5 cm) chunks. Add the apples and the raisins to the egg mixture. Stir to combine.
  4. Cook the noodles in boiling salted water until soft but still firm. Drain noodles in a colander and add to the egg/apple mixture. Mix well and pour into the greased baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle the noodles with sugar/cinnamon mixture and bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until golden and firm.
