matzo apple kugel

24 Apr

we went to dinner at my moms house tonight so i figured i’d try this kugel — we ate it as a side – but really it would be great for any meal!  its sweet and yummy and filling!

Ingredients

  • 4 matzo crackers, crushed
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3 Granny Smith apples – cored, peeled and chopped  (i used one gala and one huge jazz apple)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the crumbled matzos in a medium bowl, and add enough water to cover. Let stand for 2 minutes, then drain off excess water. Do not squeeze.
  2. To the bowl of matzo, add eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, lemon juice and applesauce. Stir to combine. Mix in the apples and dried cranberries. Spread the mixture evenly into a 2 quart casserole dish. Mix together the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden, and the apples are soft.
