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.
