Rich Noodle Kugel

Esther Hardman


Maybe I should wait to put this recipe in, but the hell with it. It is part of my history and I will share it.
My Dad died in 2000 of cancer and my Mother wouldn't tell us he was at the end. But later she told me that this was the only thing he could swallow, he hurt so bad. Maybe some of you will make it for your loved ones when their time comes.

How to Make Rich Noodle Kugel


  • 1Using a food processor and the metal blade, whirl your eggs about. Add the cottage cheese, sour cream and sugar. Process until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and add milk, raisins, melted butter, vanilla and lemon zest.
  • 2Boil the noodles in 5 quarts of water with 1 tablespoon of salt till they are almost fully cooked, about 5 minutes, but check the package instructions anyway. Drain and add to the egg-cheese mixture. Butter and 9 X 13 inch baking dish and dump your kugel in. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until lightly browned. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving. I have always put some in a bowl and poured a little cream around it.
