Apricot Prune Kugel

Here's a recipe for Apricot Prune Kugel for Passover. Baba said she isn't making kugel this year because she's making a turkey and stuffing it and the stuffing is just the same as kugel. So I'll make kugel.

I looked for the recipe and couldn't find it, so I asked on Twitter but no-one's suggestion looked quite right. (Kugel means different things to different people.) Then I looked in my cookbook again and realized the recipe was just formatted weird, and I actually do have it. So I'm posting it here for the interest of googlers everywhere.

  • 16 dried apricots
  • 12 prunes
  • 2 heaping cups matzo farfel
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup raisins
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 apple, grated fine
  • 1 cup orange juice
  1. Soak the apricots and prunes in hot water (I don't know for how long) and then drain and chop them.

  2. Pour hot water over farfel; drain. Add oil and egg. Mix in fruit and all other ingredients.

  3. Turn into square baking dish. Bake at 350°C for about 1 hour.
