Scrumptios Sunday bonus dessert pasta recipe - Noodle Pudding


Scrumptious Sunday hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rocks
NOODLE PUDDING
better known as KUGEL as you will find over at JOY OF DESSERTS

I gotta try her recipe too - mine never had a topping but Joy's sure sounds yummy
2 cups dry wide egg noodles
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup sugar
8 ounce crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup golden raisins
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 cup milk
  • Cook and drain the noodles
  • Combine all other ingredients together
  • Fold into warm noodles
  • Generously spray an 8x8 baking dish with PURE
  • Gently spread entire mixture into dish evenly
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes
I remember the first time I had this - my little Jewish neighbor brought it over as a welcome to the neighborhood back in 1986. She called it noodle pudding. It was so delicious. I wanted to ask her for the recipe, but I'd just met her and I was young and shy. I made her my floating fruit cake in the same pan she'd brought over and returned it to her to ask for the recipe. I remember how hard she laughed at me. She said it was a Jewish custom to always return a plate, bowl or dish full and of course I could have the recipe. We became fast friends and shared LOTS of recipes before I moved.

Joy is right about the sugar, but I have played with the recipe over the years to keep it sweet while dealing with sugar intolerances. The pineapple has been a good substitute. Another great option is adding the following.
1 teaspoon rum
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Tamy, I'm definitely making this recipe! It also sounds great. Thank you for linking to my blog and for your comment about my note on sugar.

You share such a nice story about your Jewish neighbor. It is so nice when we find a nice neighbor and especially when we can share a friendship with them too. :-)
