Chanie Apfelbaum of Busy in Brooklyn came in to FeedfeedBrooklyn to show us how to make her take on the latke for Hannukah!
For the Sweet Noodle Kugel Latkes
- 12 ounces egg noodles, medium, not curly
- 4 eggs
- 16 ounces ricotta cheese
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/ 2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2/ 3 cup sugar
- 3/ 4 cup flour
- Butter, for frying
- Sour cream, for serving
- Bourbon raisin jam, for serving, recipe below
To Make the Sweet Noodle Kugel Latkes
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the egg noodles. Cook for 7-8 minutes and drain well.
While the noodles are cooking, add the remaining ingredients, besides for the butter, to a bowl and mix until creamy. Stir in the pasta.
Heat the butter in a nonstick frying pan.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup or ice cream scoop, portion out the noodle mixture and fry until golden brown on both sides.
Serve with sour cream and bourbon raisin jam.
For the Bourbon Raisin Jam
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3/ 4 cup apple cider
- 1/ 2 cup bourbon
- 1 lemon, juiced
- pinch salt
To Make the Bourbon Raisin Jam
Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, until the liquid is reduced and thickened. Pulse in a food processor or blender until desired consistency is reached (I prefer it on the chunky side!).
