Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) salted butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecans, halved
  • 1 pound wide noodles
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Directions

  • 1. Melt half the butter in a 12-cup mold or tube pan. Swirl it around the bottom and up the sides.
  • 2. Press the brown sugar into the bottom and press the pecans into the sugar.
  • 3. Boil the noodles according to the package directions and then drain. Mix the noodles with the eggs, the remaining butter, melted, cinnamon, sugar, and salt and pour into the mold.
  • 4. Bake the kugel in a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the top is brown. Let the kugel sit for 15 minutes before unmolding. The top will become slightly hard like a praline. Serve cold or at room temperature.
