- 1 lb. wide egg noodles
- 16 oz. sour cream
- 16 oz. cottage cheese
- 5 eggs
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2-3/4 cup sugar (I like half a cup, Seth likes three-quarters; it all depends on how sweet you'd like your kugel to be)
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. butter melted into a 9x13 baking dish
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
- Cinnamon and brown sugar for sprinkling
Boil the noodles for 4 minutes, which won't cook them all the way through but this is a good thing! Don't worry about it! And then drain them in a colander.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat your eggs well, and then mix in the sour cream, cottage cheese, baking powder, sugar, salt, and optional raisins. (I actually meant to add raisins, but I forgot. Oops.)
And now add the noodles. Stir it good. St-stir it real good.
Pour this mixture into your buttered 9x13 baking dish, sprinkle the top with cinnamon and brown sugar, and then bake that bad boy (or girl, whatever) for 30-45 minutes, until the top is brown and crunchy and the kugel is just set.
Let that sit for another 15-20 minutes or so, and then slice and serve.
Now, there will be a lot of this left over. Like, a whole lot. But don't worry about it! Leftovers can be wrapped and frozen so you can have kugel whenever you want. You know, if you want. Whatever.
Happy 47th birthday, boyfriend!
