Cooking with Joy: Challah Kugel

7 comments | Leave Comment


Bread pudding isn’t usually on our repertoire. Hubs doesn’t like sweet sides. He grew up with savory lukshen and potato kugel as standard sides. I grew up with sweet lukshen with fruit and sugar. My mom put raisins in basically everything; his mom doesn’t put raisins in oatmeal (raisin) cookies.

So far I am very happy with the results of my Cooking with Joy expedition. I have gotten to taste new flavors and have learnt that lots of things that you would think are a patchke, take barely any time at all.

This bread pudding was very quick and easy to make. I was kind of expecting it to be super sweet and sticky, but it didn’t come out that way at all. I followed the recipe to a tee, the only difference was I used whole wheat challah.

The pudding was good, just to me lacked the sticky sweetness I was hoping for. As I read on, I saw there was a recipe for a glaze. BINGO that’s just what it needed. The glaze gave the pudding what I was looking for. I had a few portions and Hubs ate the rest!

  4. I feel like we are married to twins! Hubby also doesn’t like sweet sides and I LUHUVE – to me aweet sides are an excuse to have dessert at the meal! So that’s why you will find that most of my “sweet” sides, like this one, are not overly cloying until you add that fabulous glaze or apricot honey (YUMMY!!!!!)
