  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • ¾ cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 red plum, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉ / 180℃.
  2. Boil the egg noodles according to the instructions on the package (al dente).

  3. In a large bowl, mix the cottage cheese, sour cream, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and salt.

  4. Mix in the cooked egg noodles until well combined.

  5. Grease a bundt pan. Slice a plum and place each slice at the bottom of the pan. Add the noodle mixture on top and flatten with a spatula. Bake for 50 minutes until crispy on top.
