Jewish Noodle Pudding
1 pound dried broad egg noodles
½ pound dried apricots, diced
1 apple, peeled, cored, and diced
¼ cup crushed drained pineapple
¾ cup golden raisins
2 cups (1 pint) sour cream
2 cups (1 pound) cottage cheese
1 cup milk
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
¾ cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
In a large saucepan, bring at least 4 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the noodles, stir to separate, and cook until al dente. Drain.
In a large bowl, combine the noodles, apricots, apple, pineapple, and raisins. Beat the eggs and combine, in a large bowl, with the sour cream, cottage cheese, milk, and melted butter. Using an electric mixer, beat until well blended and creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Pour the sour cream mixture over the noodles and combine well. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. Sprinkle the cornflake crumbs evenly over the top. Bake until set and golden brown, about 1 hour. Serve at once or reheat when ready to serve.
