Ultra Creamy and Rich Sweet Noodle Kugel

Noodle Kugels are new to me and I think I hit the jackpot with this recipe. This Ultra Creamy Sweet Noodle Kugel is a must try with its velvety custard and an amazing graham cracker topping.

It was fantastic, I can’t stress that enough. The ratio of the custard to the noodles was perfect.

When I was researching recipes, I knew I wanted a recipe that had fewer noodles and a bit more custard. I went with a sweet graham cracker topping which was the perfect accent.

Serve warm and enjoy!

For the filling:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cooked egg noodles cook 1 cup dry noodles according to directions on package, drained and rinsed with cold water, or toss it lightly with butter.

For the topping:

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 350-f degrees

For the filling:

  • In a food processor blend the melted butter, cream cheese and eggs. Add sugar, milk and vanilla and blend well. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add the cooked noodles. Stir gently to combine. Pour into a greased deep dish pie dish.

For the topping:

  • Prepare the topping: Stir the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together and mix well. Sprinkle over the uncooked kugel. Don’t worry if it seems to sink a bit, it should rise to the top as it bakes.
  • Bake for 50 – 55 minutes, or until set. I baked it in a water bath but if you try baking it regularly, please let me know how it turns out.

  1. I've only ever made one kugel and I didn't like the recipe. Yours looks delicious, so maybe I need to give it another go. I think I would like more custard, less pasta as well.

    1. I hope you do. When I made this I also made a totally different kugel recipe (with more noodles) to see the difference in texture. This one here is the winner – so very good.

    2. Carlee. If you do less noodles & more custard, then it is not Kugel. LOL..If you like raisins then put maybe a 1/4 cup or so of those in. try this one first as it is, bet you will like it.

    1. Yes I think so Adam. I thought the leftovers were just as delicious the next day. I would be careful if you bake it a second time. Personally I haven't tried that, I reheated it the 2nd day in the microwave. So I would just be careful not to bake too too long on the reheat. Good luck 🙂
