A perfect side dish to any Passover seder and tasty enough to serve at any time throughout the year.
  • 4 regular-flavored sheets of matzoh
  • 3 eggs, beaten well
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon all spice
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and cubed
  • ½ cup raisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish. Break the matzoh sheets into many pieces and soak in a bowl of water until soft. Drain in a colander, mashing to squeeze the water out.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, salt, sugar, oil and cinnamon and all spice. Add the soaked matzo and mix well.
  4. Fold in the apples and raisins. Spoon into the prepared baking dish, and spread evenly.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned and apples are tender.
  6. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top and let cool before cutting.
I baked my dish for approximately 49 minutes as the apples took a while to soften. Rome apples would bake in a shorter amount of time.
Feel free to add in 1 teaspoon of honey (Mom’s recipe included this ingredient).
Make sure not to over bake or the kugel or it WILL taste like baked cardboard.
