Matzo Apple Orange Kugel Recipe @pinch

Many kugels are made with noodles and we loved the matzo in this recipe. When baked, the matzo and egg have almost a bread pudding texture. The flavor is amazing. It is overloaded with apples and cinnamon. Orange zest adds a nice, fresh flavor. This is classified as a side dish, but could really be a dessert. I have been making this, my own, version of matzoh kugel (pudding) every Passover for at least 40 years and it is always a hit with family and friends, especially good as a side dish accompaniment with poultry.

Ingredients :
  • 3 - matzos
  • 6 - eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2-3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) raisins, any type note: may use craisins for a change.
  • 4 large apples (any type, but I like delicious), peeled or partially peeled
  • 1 large orange, zest only
  • 1/2 cup(s) almonds, chopped or sliced
  • 4+ tablespoon(s) cinnamon-sugar mixture
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter or margarine, melted
Intructions :
  • Break matzohs coarsely. Soak them in water just until soft (about 1 minute). Squeeze out excess water. (DO NOT OVER SOAK!)
  • In a very large bowl, stir together the matzos and the eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, raisins, apples, orange zest, and almonds
  • Place in well-greased (or sprayed with Pam) baking pan or casserole dish. Sprinkle top with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Note: The orange rind is a must! Add extra for even more flavor
  • Drizzle butter or margarine over the top if desired
  • Bake at 350 until firm and browned (about 45 minutes)
  • Note: This freezes well. I use the large slits of a hand grater, but you can use a food processor for speedier prep time.
