Buda Noodle Pudding Squares
A cinnamony, creamy dessert topped with whipped cream and toasted almonds inspired by a trip to Budapest.
8 ounces medium egg noodles
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 pound cottage cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Whipped cream and toasted almonds for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8" x 8" pan. Put noodles on to boil for five minutes (a few minutes less than directions call for.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine butter, cottage cheese, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Whisk until well-combined. Pour into baking pan. Bake 40 - 45 minutes or until set and lightly golden on top. Let rest ten minutes before cutting into squares. Top with whipped cream and almonds. Serves 4 - 6.
