Passover apple kugel

We’ve been making this recipe, adapted from the New York Times Passover Cookbook, page 268, for at least the last five years. It’s a nice departure from the typical dry Passover cakes, and especially suited to families who prefer apple desserts. The apples stay relatively crisp, and the eggs give a nice custardy taste and texture. Add half a cup of chopped walnuts if you like a little texture.
