As I sit here writing Passover recipes, I am realizing that many of my favorite holiday foods are associated with this holiday. I love any kind of Kugel, potato, noodle, matzo, and anything in between. I love the freedom to add really whatever you want into the kugels, they are a blank slate!
This recipe is a combination of my mom’s and Noah’s Grandma’s recipe. My mom usually adds walnuts to the kugel, while Noah’s grandma adds raisins. Both of them add apples. I hope you enjoy!
4 Sheets of Matzo
¼ Cup butter, melted
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon salt
½ Cup sugar
2 Granny Smith Apples, diced
½ Cup raisins
Break the matzah into small pieces into a bowl (my mom uses Matzo Farfel here to skip this step). Soak in water for about a minute and drain immediately.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, sugar, and melted butter. Mix in with the matzo.
Chop the apples into small pieces and mix in to the matzo mixture along with the raisins.
Pour into a 9X9 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
