Dairy Noodle Pudding

The Backstory: I have had this recipe for so long (ages) that I can’t even remember who gave it to me. If any of my friends are reading this and thinking, “Myrna, I gave it to you,” I thank you and here is your shot at fame. More of the Backstory after the recipe

Dairy Noodle Pudding

This sweet, creamy noodle kugel gets it smooth texture from cottage cheese and sour cream and it's sweet kick from cinnamon, orange juice and raisins. A surprising crunchy topping puts it, well, over the top. It's a wonderful side dish served warm or at room temperature.

Noodle Pudding

  • 1 lb. package of wide noodles
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 container cottage cheese, 16 ounces
  • 1 container sour cream, 16 ounces
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to tsaste
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup white or dark raisins


  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to be added to crushed corn flakes (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup sugar to be added to crushed corn flakes (to taste)
  • 1 12 ounces Corn Flakes cereal crush and set aside


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil noodles according to package. Drain (do not rinse). Add butter. Let cool.
  3. When noodles are cooled, add eggs cottage cheese , sour cream, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, orange juice and raisins. Pour into a large, greased baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix crushed Corn Flakes with butter, sugar and cinnamon. Pat gently on top of noodles.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes. Enjoy.

…The Backstory continues: This is a scrumptious side dish that’s a wonderful alternative to potatoes or rice. Unlike other noodle puddings, this variety takes its cheesy consistency from cottage cheese (hang in there–I promise, it’s delicious), and a mixture of sour cream, eggs, vanilla, orange juice and sugar. The Corn Flakes topping give it an extra crunch.

This is a great dish to serve with fish or with a salad. It can also be used for breaking the fast on Yom Kipper and a host of other occasions. Serve hot or at room temperature.
