- 12 oz. yolk-free wide egg noodles, uncooked
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 12 oz. unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 c. crushed pineapple with juice
- 3/4 c. cherry-flavored Craisins
- 10 1/2 oz. egg substitute
- 2 3/4 c. fat-free milk
- 12 oz. fat-free plain yogurt
- 5 tsp. Irish breakfast tea leaves
- 1/4 c. Special K cereal
- 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 1/4 tsp. brown sugar
Warm the milk slightly in a saucepan; do not scald. Keeping the milk on a very low flame, add the tea leaves. Stir constantly for 5 min. This will produce a strong brew. Remove the milk from the heat; strain out and discard the tea leaves.
Place the milk in a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar, applesauce, vanilla extract, pineapple, Craisins, egg substitute, and yogurt.
Place the noodles in a very large mixing bowl. Pour milk mixture over the noodles and stir to evenly coat. Pour this mixture into an 11 x7 baking dish, cover, and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Prior to baking, preheat the oven to 300°F.
While oven preheats, prepare the topping: coarsely crush the cereal and mix together with cinnamon and brown sugar. Sprinkle this mixture over the kugel.
Bake in a 300°F oven for hours.
