Everyone has their own idea of comfort food. For O Wise One it is homemade noodles. His mama's homemade noodles no less. These noodles she made and froze when eggs were plentiful. They were added to chicken broth, beef broth or even wild game broth such as goose, venison, pheasant or duck. I don't always make my noodles from scratch but on a cold and wintry day they definitely hit the spot. So when the weather gets nasty I dig out his mom's old hand written recipe.
1 cup flour
2 whole eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tablespoons cream or evaporated milk
It's pretty simple. Mix, roll thin, cut and drop in hot broth.
First mix the flour, salt and baking powder
Add eggs and milk and mix well
Dough will be sticky but pull away from side of bowl
Now add a little flour at a time and work in until dough is no longer wet and can be handled easily.
cut into noodles either with a knife or a noodle cutter
Hang on rack to dry until ready to add to broth.
I'll post tomorrow on making the broth for the noodles and cooking.
