A traditional Jewish pastry.



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the apples with brown sugar and orange juice and set aside in a medium bowl. Break the matzo into 2-3 inch pieces and soak in 1 cup of warm water until soft, but not mushy. Set aside. While the matzo soaks, in a large bowl, beat the eggs with a wire whisk until blended. Add the salt, sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, raisins, and apricots.

Squeeze the liquid from the softened matzo and add the matzo to the egg mixture with the apples. Stir the kugel well and pour into a lightly greased 2 1/2 quart casserole dish or a 10x14 inch pan. Dot the top of the kugel with the 4 tablespoons of butter.

Bake the kugel for 1 hour. Cover the top with foil if the top begins to become too brown early in the baking. Remove the kugel from the oven and cool to room temperature

I have a recipe for Plum Noodle Kugel. You could probably substitute apples for plums.


6 oz noodles (any kind, bow tie, egg noodles etc.)
3 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup soft unseasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp melted butter
3 3/4 c plums, quartered and pitted
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1/2 c chopped nuts (optional)

Cook noodles in boiling water til barely tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. Beat eggs. Add sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Toss noodles in egg mixture. Stir in plums and apple sauce. Pour into a buttered 2 qt casserole. Combine bread crumbs, melted butter and nuts. Sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until golden. Serve warms.

I've also used canned plums and it works out well. My grandmother used to make plum dumplings and this tastes pretty close to those, which were awesome! Hope you like it!

Many years ago, The New York Daily News featured a cooking column by Ella Elvin. One of my favorites was a recipe for Apple Noodle Kugel. I've misplaced the recipe, and nothing else that I've tried comes close to it. With the upcoming Jewish Holidays, I need help! Does anyone out there have Ella Elvin's recipe? Thanks so much!

There is an old cookbook from 1962:

The Sunday News Family Cook Book (Hardcover)
by Alice Petersen and Ella Elvin

I found used copies for sale at Amazon and other used book dealers online. One price was only 8 cents plus shipping and handling. (09/21/2008)

Many libraries have newspaper archives. You could check to see if these are online and look for your recipe that way.

Also, many newspapers have archives. You may be able to search your newspaper for your key words and come up with that recipe.

Have you tried googling her name or the recipe? (09/22/2008)

    I have a copy of the Sunday News cookbook mentioned by OhioGirl and the recipe you desire is not in it. But it is a good cookbook nevertheless. (09/22/2008)

    I have two very good noodle kugel tried and true recipes. One has lots of cheese it in it, cottage cheese, sour cream, etc., and the other is just a noodle pudding with crushed pineapple with lots of eggs which forms like a custard. Don't know if these are similar to the NY daily news recipe you are looking for, but if you have any interest, please contact me and I will send it on to you. Happy new year, Sandi from New Jersey.
