My first try at this is in the oven now, but I couldn't help reviewing it since the "pudding" tasted so good. I made the following changes: 1 and 1/2 stick melted butter, 1/2 cup yogurt (since my husband hates sour cream), 6 real eggs, 1 1/2 cup sugar, about half of a 24oz jar of cinnamon applesauce, and added 1tsp cinnamon extract and nutmeg (along with the vanilla and lemon juice.) Next time I will probably cut down on the sugar even more since it was still very sweet this way (but still very good.) I forgot to add the raisins -- oops. Next time. Also used far more than 1/4c cracker crumbs. I used 1 entire pouch of graham crackers that I crushed by hand. Sprinkled about 3/4 of that on the bottom of the pan and the rest on top. This also made a TON. Next time I will probably half it, especially if I was just making it for a few people. Edit: This did not come out as well as I thought it would. The top got very dried out and was hard to eat since the noodles got crunchy, even with the cracker crumbs on top. It also didn't have a lot of flavor. The "pudding" alone was quite good but with as many noodles as you use, it becomes much less flavorful. If I make it again, I would use less noodles, more applesauce and spices, and perhaps some fresh apple slices to up the flavor.
