      It’s an organic brand that is very similar to Nilla wafers– can’t remember the name offhand. But if you look up Nilla wafers, you’ll see the style of cookie I’m referencing.

    Hi Tori,
    Sometimes when I have made a noodle kugel, it falls apart when I try to cut it into pieces. I thought my problem was that I rinsed the noodles and that NOT rinsing was to secret to the kugel staying together. You rinse your noodles, however, in this recipe and it was cut into perfect pieces in your photo. Why do my kugels fall apart?

    • Tori Avey says

      Hi Booma! Simple answer – wait until the kugel cools before you cut into it. Cutting into a hot kugel makes for a messy slice. If that doesn’t help, it may be that your recipe doesn’t have enough eggs to bind it together well.

    So happy to find this recipe! My mother-in-laws noodle kugel was so similar to this. I have had trouble duplicating this because she was a natural cook, no measurements etc., and I am not. She added a few golden raisins and cinnamon to the noodle/pudding mixture.

    Hi Tori, Can this recipe be made in 2 smaller pans instead of one large pan? I’m going to make it to take to a small Hanukkah party but would like to also have some to keep for my family. I’ve made this kugel before &’it’s delicious!

    • Tori Avey says

      Yes no problem! It will cook a bit faster in smaller pans so do keep an eye on it and take out when it is finished cooking, even if it’s before the suggested time. Enjoy!

    Tori, this recipe is incredible!! It was my first time making it. I snuck a bite to try it and LOVED it! I’m wondering if there will be any left for my husband and son!! Thanks for sharing.
