My Grandma gave me this recipe, which was her mother's recipe. We don't have a lot of family heirlooms since both my maternal Grandma and Grandpa were 1st generation Americans, so it is nice to have a bit of family history! Her kugel is a sweet, apple and raisin kugel, yum!
Bertha Schreiber's Luchen Kugel
1/2 lb (8oz) broad egg noodles
2 eggs (sometimes I use 3 to hold together better)
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp shortening (my Grandma uses margarine, I use butter)
1/2 cup raisins
2 apples peeled and sliced (I usually eyeball and add an extra apple if needed)
*Boil noodles as directed; drain and cool.*Add slightly beaten eggs to the cooled down noodles to coat.
*Melt fat (butter or marg.) to mixture of apples, raisins, cinnamon and sugar.
*Add some more cinnamon and sugar on top. If you have a really hot oven, I would suggest skipping this step.
*Bake in greased casserole at 350F (180C) for an hour
Serves 4 to 6.
