A deliciously different dessert, which is made by baking together pasta, soured cream, sugar, raisins, apple sauce and cinnamon. It's the perfect winter warmer.
Can be purchased in health speciality shops or online.
This turned out very nicely. I used 1/2 cup of real butter(margarine is terrible for you), 1/2 cup less sugar, used 1/4 cup more reduced fat sour cream, used chunky spiced applesauce from trader joes, softened the raisin in the boiling water with the noodles, and used almost a cup of graham cracker powder and 1 tsp cinnamon mixed with 4 table spoons of melted butter and sprinkled that mixture on the top instead of on the bottom. I baked for 50 minutes. Next time I might even cut the sugar some more. I think the graham cracker "crust" prevented the noodles from getting dry and burnt. The crust was a nice golden brown - no burning. - 19 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have never liked noodle puddings, but a favor to my mother inspired me to try this recipe - success! She called it the "best kugel I have ever had in my entire life." I still don't like most kugels, but this has become one of my favorite year-round dishes. I use only 1 C sugar, 8 oz of chunky applesauce, soaked sultanas (golden raisins), and no graham crackers crumbs. It is far less sweet and creamy than most kugels this way, and it really emphasises the appley-cinnamon flavour. - 21 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent! I made mine with unsweetened applesauce and it was still sweet, just perfect. - 28 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
