Apple Kugels make me happy. I fill mine with more apples than is ever called for. I, also like mine chunky, so I cut the pieces larger than most recipes ask for. The basic recipe works. Actually, with all the apples, almost any recipe would work.
The recipe, I ended up making has additional carrot and cranberries. The extra crunch of cranberries could only enrich this recipe. I didn't expect much from the carrot but it adds a bit of color, inside of the kugel.
The recipe comes from Gatherings - the Ganz Family Edition.
