    Serves: 4 

    • 250g fine egg noodles
    • 4 eggs
    • 3 cups (750ml) milk
    • 1 cup (330g) white sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
    • 70g butter
    • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour10min  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

    1. Fill a saucepan with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles then return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Butter a 23x33cm baking dish.
    3. Beat the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla essence together in a bowl. Stir in the noodles. Pour the noodle mixture in the prepared baking dish. Pour the melted butter over the noodles then top with the coconut.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until the noodles are set and the coconut is golden brown, about 1 hour.

    I have not had Kugel before so I made this per the recipe but used wide noodles instead of fine and it was really good. The noodles were tender and the dish had just the right amount of sweetness.  -  28 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Outstanding. Just do add a half a teaspoon of rum extract for perfection!  -  03 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really tasty! I followed the recipe exactly except that I used 1 cup of coconut and mixed it with the butter before sprinkling it on top. Mine took less than an hour to bake.  -  08 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
