Lieblich Noodle Kugel


"A heavenly, decadent kugel recipe that I have had since my college days when my roommate begged several vendors at a San Antonio Oktoberfest to share their delicious kugel recipes with us. From these recipes, we combined and created our amazing Lieblich Noodle Kugel. I have taken this dish to countless events with family and friends, and it receives rave reviews every single time!"

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles, and cook until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine the cottage cheese, pineapple, and apples; set aside. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and set aside.
  3. Spread one-third of the noodles onto the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread with half of the cottage cheese mixture, and sprinkle with one-third of the cinnamon sugar.

Mix together the white wine and melted butter; brush onto the noodles. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Cover with aluminum foil.
