Homemade Egg Noodles

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.
Grandma's Noodles
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.
Roll thin
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.

  1. Thanks again, CQ! :)
    Now, I imagine that the noodle cutter can be bought?
    Is that a special rack for drying noodles?
    Bookmarking this. :)

    1. The wooden noodle cutter I purchased from the Amish. The rack is the rack that came with my electric roaster turned upside down

  2. My hubby loves homemade noodles for his comfort food too...I like the looks of your recipe, I think I'll give it a try ..thanks for sharing :o)

  3. Well, would ya look at that!!!

    I've been makin' homemade noodles (are there any other kind"?) all my life and have never seen a noodle cutter. Heck, I just roll 'em up and cut 'em with a knife then toss them back out again. How neat!!!

    God bless ya girl and have yourself a magnificent day!!! :o)

  4. I've never tried making noodles-but you make it look kinda easy : )

  5. Hi again, I made your noodles today for lunch, they were tasty as I expected..but I should have rolled mine out a tad bit thinner..I made them too recipe doesn't call for baking powder and I wanted to see how that worked...pretty good..I'll do it again :o)

  6. We have made noodles for years, but never seen your noodle cutter--I love it!

  7. Oh, how fabulous! We enjoy homemade noodles too and I use a pizza cutter for the cutting. Your roller is very nifty! Very nice. :o)

  8. You say your mother in law froze them? Do you roll and cut them first? and do they need to thaw before using? Can't wait to try these!

  9. I wished I could find that wooden noodle cutter - not having much luck. I see you bought it from the Amish. Do they have an online store - any information would be greatly appreciated.

  10.\ they have them
