North Shore Chicago Hadassah's Lick-Your-Fingers Kugel
"This is definitely American—with dark brown sugar and pecans! Your guests will love it." - Joan Nathan.
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) salted butter or margarine
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup pecans, halved
1 pound wide noodles
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
- Melt half the butter in a 12-cup mold or tube pan. Swirl it around the bottom and up the sides.
- Press the brown sugar into the bottom and press the pecans into the sugar.
- Boil the noodles according to the package directions and then drain. Mix with the eggs, the remaining butter, melted, cinnamon, sugar, and salt and pour into the mold.
- Bake in a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the top is brown. Let sit for 15 minutes before unmolding. The top will become slightly hard like a praline. Serve cold or at room temperature.
Makes 10 to 12 servings (D) or (P).
