Coffee Cake Kugel

COFFEE CAKE KUGEL ☕️ A distinctly cozy, uniquely delicious combination of sweet and savory ✨

This isn’t your bubbe’s kugel - this is a blend of your favorite afternoon coffee cake and buttery noodles cooked into the slightly sweet dish that is perfect any time of day!

What's kugel, you ask? Do you mean, besides a delicious side dish? Kugel (קוגל) is a type of pudding that is often sweet and served as a dessert. Kind of like a pie, but also not really.

In Hebrew it means "something rolled", probably from the round jelly roll shape of some varieties. In Yiddish, it is called Galuska and Germknödel. There are many ways to make kugel, but potatoes are often the main star. Most kugel recipes contain eggs, milk, onions and other seasonings. No potatoes in this one though!

TLDR; Kugel is delicious Jewish baked pudding, and there's no reason why it shouldn't be a part of your menu plan.

The best way to find out what it is, is to taste one yourself 😉
