On the fifth day of puddings I’m posting a Jewish recipe from My Mother’s Recipe Box, or so it says on the recipe card.
Kugel is a baked noodle pudding or casserole, according to Wikipedia. It’s similar to a pie and often made with egg noodles.The name comes from German kugel meaning “sphere, globe, ball”; the Yiddish name likely originated as a reference to the round, puffed-up shape of the original dishes. Nowadays, however, kugels are often baked in square pans.
So, it’s really not a Christmas pudding. I just wanted to see if you were paying attention. Plus, I was running out of pudding recipes.
