Velvet Noodle Pudding with Keri Jill

Keri stayed overnight a few days ago and after she requested and ate a plateful of pancakes we tried a recipe I have been wanting to make for a very long time.
My brother-in-law, George would occasionally take us to dinner at a nearby Jewish Delicatessen that serves the very best Kugel.  It is so, so creamy. Just like a cheesecake.

I have searched many recipes and just can't seem to find one like it.  There are versions that include sour cream and/or cottage cheese. I decided to try a recipe in a cookbook that has been sitting in my Hoosier.  Keri and I got busy right after breakfast making it.

It was very good!
not nearly as creamy as what I was hoping.
So... I tried again.
I kept all of the measurements the same but halved the amount of noodles.
still not like the kugel from the delicatessen.
Seriously, their kugel is heavenly!
We love this recipe and maybe somewhere down the line I will discover the creamiest version ever!
For now, this will bring on the smiles.
Velvet Noodle Pudding
from: Grandma Doralee Patinkin's Jewish Family Cookbook
by Doralee Patinkin Rubin
1/4 pound butter, melted
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces semi-broad noodles (cooked according to directions on package, drained, and rinsed with cold water)

1 cup crushed corn flakes
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a food processor or electric mixer, blend butter, cream cheese and eggs. Add sugar, milk and vanilla. Blend well. Transfer to a large bowl and add the cooked noodles. Blend. Pour into a greased oven-to-table 8 1/2 x 11-inch serving dish.

3. Combine topping ingredients and spread over noodles. Bake for 1 hour.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

NOTES for my altered version:

  • I reduced the amount of noodles to 4 ounces.
  • Not sure if it helped but used a water bath to bake.
