Bake with Bizzy - More Than Apple Kugel

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.

More Than Apple Kugel (adapted)

4 -5 apples, peeled, cored and cubed or sliced
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup gluten-free flour mixture or   all  purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten or 1/2 cup egg beaters
cinnamon to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray cooking oil in 8 inch square pan.

In a medium bowl, combine apples, carrots and cranberries.  Set aside.

In another bowl, mic together flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder, oil, lemon juice, vanilla extract and eggs and mix well.

Add fruit to batter.  Mix well.

Place in prepared pan.  If you would like, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees until golden on top.

Serve warm or hot.
