Sweet Kugel Recipe @pinch

Whether you are hosting a holiday meal or looking for a new dessert recipe, we encourage you to try this sweet kugel. It almost smelled like apple pie while it was baking and we couldn't wait to cut a slice. With all of the wet ingredients, it almost makes a custard that holds the noodles together. Mixing cream cheese with cottage cheese makes this really rich and almost has a cheesecake/apple pie flavor. Cinnamon and applesauce add a ton of flavors and raisins are a sweet surprise in every bite. The buttery crunchy Frosted Flakes are the perfect topping. This kugel is a must on our holiday table. It is my most requested recipe. There are approximate measurements for the nutmeg and cinnamon. I just sprinkle a light dusting on the top of the noodles prior to mixing it all together.
