Blueberry Apple Kugel

This is a slight variation on the strawberry apple kugel in kosher by design. We have tried the kugel with strawberry pie filling, blueberry pie filling and raspberry pie filling. Our family favorite is the raspberry pie filling but I am having a hard time find one that is pareve and not d.e. – please let me know if you have one. The next favorite is the blueberry one (reproduced below) and the strawberry came in last. But taste is subjective so try them all.

3 cups flour
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 Granny smith apples, cut into small cubes (I’m lazy and I never peel the apples I’m cooking with)
Dash cinnamon
1 (21 ounce) can blueberry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, vanilla, oil, egg and baking powder. Mix with the tips of your fingers until it forms crumbs. Sprinkle 1/3 of the crumbs in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan and press down. Top with the apples and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with another 1/3 of the crumbs. Pour the pie filling over the crumbs and top with the rest. Pat down lightly. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour.

  1. Parve fruit crisp/ This from a co-worker can use any fresh fruit

    Pre-heat oven to 400

    5-6 apples peeled, cored and sliced layered in 10×6 casserole

    Mix with fork until crumbly:

    Pour over the dry mixture 1 stick of melted margarine (or butter) and mix.
    Spread evenly over apples (or fruit)

    Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes. This is a terrific recipe!!!!

  2. Comstock makes the Raspberry pie filling that is Pareve. I got it at my local Kosher Grocery Store. Ask your store to order it.

  3. Comstock also makes blackberry which would probably be delicious too.
    I leave out the apples and use blueberry pie filling and it is wonderful.

    Another thing I have tried is apple pie filling and frozen blueberries as the filling.

    • If you rewarm it covered, it will get soggy from condensation. The blueberries also have some moisture in them and when cold they weep a bit. I take it out and rewarm it after it is room temp then rewarm, uncovered so some of the moisture gets evaporated.
