Our VP of Brand Experience, Lisa Kolodny, shares a sweet kugel secret recipe that has been passed on for generations in her family. The best part about this recipe is that it’s easy enough for kids to make with you.
- 6 plain matzo
- 6 eggs
- 2 apples
- 2 jars of chunky applesauce, approx. 30 oz total (or more to taste)
- 1/2 cup added sugar (more or less to taste)
- Handful of golden raisins (optional)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)
What to Do:
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease lasagna pan. Put matzo into large bowl and break into small pieces. (This is a good job for little children to do with you). Add some warm water to soften the pieces. Let matzo soak up water. Then squeeze out excess water so you have mushy matzo pieces in the bowl.
Beat eggs, add sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and add to matzo. Then add applesauce. (If the mixture feels too wet, you can add one or two more matzo – it should not be runny). Pour mixture into pan and spread across entire pan. Cut apples and spread the slices all over. Sprinkle extra cinnamon and sugar on top.
Bake until mixture is set (firm but not hard) and golden around the edges, approximately 30-40 minutes. It can be served warm or cold.
