Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min.


12 servings

"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!"


  • 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 13x9-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.
