What you'll need
It may look like a lot of ingredients to work with, but trust us, this recipe will be quick and painless.
For the toppings:
- Cornflake crumbs
For the kugel:
- Egg noodles
- Cottage cheese
- Vanilla extract
Step 1: Mix the toppings
To create the sweet topping on your noodle kugel, mix 1/2 cup of cornflake crumbs, 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Set this aside until you’re ready to bake.
Step 2: Prepare the kugel
Grease an 8-inch-square pan to place your cooked noodles in. You’ll need about two cups of cooked noodles for this recipe. Set the pan aside for now. In a blender, puree three eggs, eight ounces of cottage cheese, eight ounces of sour cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, four tablespoons of butter, and one teaspoon of vanilla extract. When everything is mixed evenly in the blender, pour the mixture into the pan over the noodles. Then sprinkle your topping mix over all of the ingredients.
Step 3: Start baking
Finally, bake your noodle kugel in the oven for one hour at 350 degrees F. You want the pudding to be cooked thoroughly and slightly puffy. After an hour, your delicious noodle kugel is ready to eat!
