This apple kugel recipe is really meant to be a side dish, but I like to make it for dessert!  It's just sweet enough to satisfy any dessert craving, but not overly sugary like so many apple cake recipes that leave you with a tummy ache. This is the most moist and fluffy apple kugel I've ever tasted.  It's so light that you'll be tempted to finish the entire dish in one sitting (like I have)!  The best part is that it is SUPER easy to make.  With only 6 ingredients and an apple corer, you can whip this dish up in just a few minutes. For added richness, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream.  Serve as a side dish or for dessert.   Quick, easy and always a winner!

Orly's Easy Gluten Free Apple Kugel (Apple Pudding)

Yields: 1 Apple Kugel (Pudding)

8 Granny Smith apples
1 cup Blends by Orly Sydney Blend
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup canola or vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla

Heat: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9x13 inch square or oval baking pan with non stick cooking oil.  

Mix: 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.
