Just wanted to clarify for those searching for recipes that this is a kugel, not a babka (which is a yeast cake). Also, a kugel made with spaghetti is a crying shame. Use egg noodles.
I've made this many times, both with and without raisins. Most of my family especially love the squares with a dollop of cherry pie filling, but I'm partial to apricot preserves.
