So here goes - the carrot kugel that is a MUST for every Shabbat in my house or my 4 yr old cries. We don't like to make a 4 yr old cry unnecessarily, now do we?
This will make a pretty large batch, so either cook for a crowd or cook for your freezer!
1 bag carrots (about 1 kilo/2 lbs), scrubbed and cut into rough pieces.
1 pot of water
Cook carrots in a pot of water, till they are soft.
Puree carrots till they are smooth (I use an immersion blender, as you can see in the picture).
Transfer carrots to a mixing bowl. Add 6 T. ground flaxseed, 1.5 c. hot water, 1/2 c. oil, 1.5 c. sugar, 1.5 t. vanilla
Mix well. Add 6 c. whole wheat flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt.
Mix all together, and pour into 3 loaf pans (lined with parchment paper is best). Bake at 175 C / 350 F for about 1 hr. Watch out or you might burn the tops...
|oops. I left it in the oven a couple minutes too long|
