Yippy Kippy Yummies

Beginning this evening at sundown, the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur commences. Unfortunately for me (and all the other Jews out there), that means that for the next 24 hours, food, water, and anything else that you may think of putting past your lips (yikes, that sounds really isn't) is a no-no. The good news is that when the 24 hours is over and it is officially time to break fast, the food is delicious. Yom Kippur provides me with my absolute favorite Jewish dish of all time: kugle. Kugle is a delicious, sweet, noodle pudding that is perfect for scarfing down when you are starving after having not eaten for 24 hours, but also would work really well for a breakfast or brunch. Here's the recipe:

  • 1 pound wide egg noodles

  • 1/4 lb. butter + 2 tbsp. butter

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 cups cottage cheese

  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

  • golden raisins (optional...I personally don't care for them, but a lot of people do)

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter 9 x 13 baking pan.

  2. Cook noodles according to package. Drain and rinse with cold water. Melt 1/4 lb. butter and mix with noodles.

  3. Beat eggs. Add milk, sour cream, cinnamon, and sugar. Pour into noodles. Stir in cottage cheese and raisins (if using). Pour into baking dish.

  4. Combine cornflakes, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top of noodles in the baking dish. Dot with 2 tbsp. butter. Bake for 1 hour.

Try it out. Tell me what you think!
