Apple Kugel


Recommended Posts


  • 400g wide pasta/noodles, best to use one made with eggs
  • 4 baking apples (600g-700g) (I use Gala, as I find Granny Smith to be a bit too tart here). Peeled and cut into strips
  • 80g-100g raisins, or chopped dried apricots
  • 70g (1/3 cup) sweet wine (or whatever not-tart wine you have on hand)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 70g-80g toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 90g dark brown sugar
  • 1.5 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 teaspoon salt
  • 5 eggs


  • In a large bowl, soak raisins in wine.
  • Add butter (unmelted), walnuts, sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  • Cook the noodles until al-dente.
  • Drain well and mix the hot noodles in the bowl until coated with the butter and sugar.
  • Let chill a little (so that the eggs won't cook), then add the eggs and apples. Mix well.
  • Pour into a spring-form pan, or a casserole pan.
  • Gently flatten making sure to push down any nuts you see, to prevent them from charring.
  • Bake in a 190C hot oven, for 30 minutes or so.
  • Remove from the oven, brush the top with butter (1-2 teaspoons). Optionally sprinkle some sugar on top for added crunch.
  • Bake for 25-30 additional minutes, until the top is well browned and crisp.
  • Serve immediately, or bake to re-crisp just before serving.
  • Reheats well in an oven (or in a MW, but you'll lose the crispness).


I make it every year for nearly 10 years.
