This apple kugel recipe is really meant to be a side dish, but I like to make it for dessert!  With only 6 ingredients and an apple corer, you can whip this dish up in just a few minutes.  Quick, easy and always a winner! Make this recipe with regular wheat flour or with Blends by Orly Gluten Free Sydney Blend.

Yields: 1 Apple Kugel

Ingredients
8 Granny Smith apples
1 cup Blends by Orly Sydney Blend (you can use regular wheat flour if not making gluten free)
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup canola or vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9×13 inch square or oval baking pan with non stick cooking oil. 
 
Peel and core 8 Granny Smith.  Slice apples thinly and line the surface of the pan with the apples.  

In a large bowl, combine Sydney Blend, white sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix together until you have an even and smooth batter with no lumps. Pour the batter evenly over the layer of apples to cover.  Sprinkle a light layer of cinnamon sugar on top.  
Bake kugel on the center oven rack for about 50 minutes until the edges are lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  For added richness when served as dessert, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream.
