Bake with Bizzy

Tonight, the Jewish holidays begin and I am living in my kitchen.  Someone should bring in a bed so I can nap.  Tonight I made a cake for hubby and started four other dishes to finish, in the morning.  

I started to list what I have to cook, tomorrow on top of the dishes, I started.  I scared myself, the list is so long.  We have three days of festive eating, two days with 2 meals and one with 3 meals.  Each of these generally have fish, soup, main course (meat or poultry) a few sides and a few salads.  Of course, there is dessert.  

There are two more holiday 3 day weekends coming up within the month.  Everyone gains weight except me.  I am too busy cooking to eat although I do taste.

I also made something scrumptious tonight, an apple kugel.  It is packed with 7 apples, sliced and coated in sugar and cinnamon and then topped with a crust.  Oh my.  I have several apple kugel recipes, some better than others.  I have not tasted this one yet so I will have to report in, later.

This recipe is not written clearly, in my opinion.  Note that sugar is mentioned twice.  I think the first 1/2 up mixes with the flour and other ingredients and the topping is the cinnamon and sugar.  That is how I did it.


    • 5 cortland apples, peeled and sliced
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup oil
    • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour mixture or AP flour
    • 1 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • sugar
    • cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Placed sliced apples in an 8X8 oven safe dish. (I sprayed it with Canola oil.)
  3. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Mix the remaining ingredients and spread over the top.
  5. Bake for 1 hour.

You can use this as a dessert or a side dish.  Everyone, I know, loves apple kugel.  If you want a different kind of top, you could make a crisp or a crumble.

Just enjoy it.  I had not cut the kugel yet.  It is still hot, very hot.  This is the whole thing.

This my treat for you.  What do you have to share with all of us.  I am still looking for ideas of what to bake for the holidays.

  3. Bizzy all recipes look amazing! Thanks for hostess

  4. Your apple kugel looks delish, Chaya! (So annoying when a recipe doesn't read right!)
    I'm thinking ice cream on top would be yummy!
