Frosted Flake Noodle Kugel

Noodle kugel is our traditional Passover desert served at the end of our Seder. This noodle pudding is a sweet mixture of eggs, butter, sugar, topped with cereal for a delightful treat.

Noodle kugel is one of those dishes that you’ve never heard of unless you know someone Jewish.  I’d never heard of kugel until I married my husband.   Even then, it’s taken me almost a decade to “get” kugel.  Is it a dessert? A side dish? Is it served hot or cold?  It’s all very confusing!

Noodle kugel is basically a noodle pudding.  It can be sweet or savory and can be served hot or cold.  I always make it sweet and serve it hot as a dessert.  I’ve always used my mother-in-law’s recipe to make kugel, but this time I wanted to try something different just to compare.  When I read the story about Smitten Kitchen’s family kugel, I had to try it out.

This is a super yummy kugel on it’s own, but I had to add one more touch — a frosted flakes topping.  My mother-in-law covered her kugel with this topping and it’s just divine!

Edited: I should add that we do not keep strict Jewish Passover kosher rules on our home.  I go strictly by the Biblical, and not rabbinical, standard of unleavened. Because pasta and the cereal are unleavened, they pass our “good for Passover” test. But if you keep stricter Passover kosher, you may not want to include this in your menu!

    Although this sounds delish. It is not a passover recipe. Unless the noodles you are using are passover noodles and the cereal on top is passover cereal. It sounds like more of a traditional break the fast kugel or a Rosh Hashanah kugel.

    I too serve my kugels hot, but they’re almost always savoury dishes.  This sweet kugel sounds very tasty.  Thank you for sharing it.

      They are a funny dish! I have a savory corn kugel bookmarked somewhere to try. I’ll have to move it to the top of the list!
