Babka (Noodle Pudding) Recipe

"THIS DESSERT is delicious hot or cold. It pops up slightly when baked and has a nice golden-honey color. Any type of fruit or preserves—cherries, apricots, strawberries, applesauce, etc.—works as a topping. You also can use a variety of ingredients in Babka—try it with raisins!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 pound egg noodles or spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 10 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Cherry, apricot or strawberry preserves


  • 1. Cook noodles in boiling salted water until almost done. Drain. Place in a bowl with butter; toss to coat. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, milk and sugar until well blended. Combine with noodles. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for about 35 minutes or until puffy and noodles begin to brown at edges. Cut into squares and serve hot or cold with fruit preserves. Yield: 12 servings.

"unusual and filling, I liked it better cold when the flavors had melded. tried with raspberry jam. Will do pie filling next time."

"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."
