Homemade Noodles

 This recipe is from the Amish cookbook, Cooking From Quilt country by Marcia Adams


Homemade Noodles

1 cup bread flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 TBS vegetable oil
3 TBS water
bread flour, for rolling/dusting

Place the flour in a medium mixer bowl. Make a well in the center and add the
rest of the ingredients. With a fork, stir to combine until a ball of dough
forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured board or cloth and knead until a smooth
dough is achieved -- about 5 minutes. You can add more water if you absolutely
have to, a teaspoonful at a time, but the noodles will be better if you do not.
Cover dough with a tea towel and allow to rest for 45 minutes.

Cut the dough in half. Roll out one-half to an approximate 14x8" rectangle; it
will not be quite paper-thin. Sprinkle dough surface lightly with a bit more
flour, flip over, and sprinkle more flour on the other side. Transfer to a tea
towel and repeat with remaining dough. Allow the rolled-out dough to stand 20 to
30 minutes.

Roll dough up like a jelly roll, starting from the short side. Using a very
sharp knife, cut the noodles to the width you prefer. Unroll each slice onto the
tea towel, sprinkle with a bit more flour, and allow to stand until noodles are
completely dry -- this may take several hours, depending on the humidity in the
air or the amount of moisture in the flour.

To use, cook noodles in a simmering salted water or broth for 5 to 7 minutes or
until tender. Allow 1/2 cup dried noodles per serving. The cooking time will
vary considerably, depending on the flour, humidity, etc. So taste to check for
doneness.

I remember my grandma's homemade noodles.  Store bought noodles don't even come close to homemade noodles in comparison!

i've been considering attempting my own homemade chicken noodle soup. Wondering something here...would I cook the noodles separately and then add to soup or make the chicken soup and cook the noodles with the soup? If you don't know that's okay, I just thought you or some1 on this thread would know right off the top of their head :)


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

I bet these taste amazing!  I love homemade noodles.  I tried to make some last year - maybe it was the recipe or my inexperience, but they didn't go over too well, lol.

I've used a recipe similar to this.  When I got my kitchenaid attachment, I started using the recipe that came with it!
