Please don’t cook the noodles


This recipe for the easiest, breeziest noodle kugel ever come directly from a friend of mine. Indirectly it comes from the pages of Bon Apetit in 1998.

Easiest Noodle Kugel

8 ounces wide egg noodles (Take note, this is not the whole bag. Don’t use more than 8 ounces or no one will like your kugel, which would really be embarrassing for both of us)

1 cup dark raisins (I leave out the raisins)

5 large eggs

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, cooled

1/3 cup sugar

4 cups whole milk

3 cups cornflakes, coarsely crushed

1/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar

(I’ll admit that I lighten up everything except the butter – and it tastes just fine.)  

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish.

Spread UNCOOKED noodles over bottom of prepared dish and sprinkle with raisins. Whisk eggs, sour cream, butter and sugar in large bowl until smooth. Whisk in milk and pour mixture over noodles. Let kugel stand 5 minutes. Mix cornflakes and brown sugar in bowl; sprinkle evenly over kugel.

Bake kugel until set in center, about 1 hour. Cut kugel into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 8 to 10.
