Although this kosher for Passover spiced Carrot-Apple Kugel contains one cup of fine matzo meal, slow cooking yields a lighter texture than many Passover kugels. The batter is studded with dried fruit and nuts, making this kugel almost like a fruit cake. Recipe provided by Ruth Sherman of the Boca Raton (FL) Hadassah branch.


Main ingredients

  • 8 carrots, peeled and grated

  • 3 apples, peeled, cored, and grated

  • 1 cup dried cherries

  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts

  • 1/4 cup grated orange zest

  • 1 cup Yehuda Matzah Cake Meal

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon Gefen Ground Allspice


Prepare the Kugel


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two eight- by four-inch loaf pans.


Combine all ingredients and divide evenly between the pans.
