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.
