Passover Pineapple Kugel

Pineapple kugel is sweet and tasty and perfect for Passover or any time. Editor's Note: You may need more potato starch, add 1 tbs at a time until the kugel reaches a thick but pourable consistency.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min




  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup oil
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 level tablespoons potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 10 cored pineapple rings, crushed (the equivalent of 1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained)
  • Whole cored pineapple rings for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Combine eggs, oil, sugar, potato starch, vanilla, and baking powder. Add the crushed pineapple (if juice has accumulated since the pineapple has been processed, drain). Garnish with additional pineapple rings. Place into a round 9-inch pan and bake for 40 minutes or until golden.

  1. Just finished eating some fresh pineapple — one of my favorite fruits. Never put it in a kugel! Great idea.

    I love pineapple and the idea of a nice pesach kugel sounds great…i usually make my own rendition for year round but use noodles….my question is, isnt there any matza or cake meal in this recipe? it seems that the only solid is the 1/2 cup sugar and the potato starch…thank you in advance

      The potato starch and eggs act a binding agent, so you don’t need matza or cake meal. It’s enough to make it fluffy and thick

    baking powder for Pesach?

  4. Just watched the utube video have I missed something you used creamcheese but no mention in the recipe list.?

  5. can this recipe be doubled or tripled, and cooked in a
    9×13 for a large amount of people?
    Does the cooking time stay the same?

    • Double for a 9 x 13 cook for the same amount of time and then start checking every 10 minutes until set – I am thinking timing will be about the same plus 10-15 minutes at most

    The potato starch measurement is really off from video to recipe? 4T. or 12T? Also how many oz. of cream cheese, no mention on the recipe at all?
