Yom Revi’i Recipe: Sweet Noodle Kugel

Sweet Noodle Kugel Recipe

For our next installment of Yom Revi’i recipe, we bring you another classic Jewish dish. Kugel is a favourite of many Ashkenazi Jews and is typically made from egg noodles or potatoes. Today’s post is a sweet noodle kugel recipe. Interesting fact: the first kugels were actually made from bread and flour and were savoury rather than sweet. Many Jewish families enjoy kugel for shabbat or Yom Tov. Some families enjoy breaking the Pesach fast with a sweet noodle kugel, while other families might make an alternative kugel made with matza to eat during Pesach.
