Homemade Noodles

Happy Monday!  I had quite the weekend!  We made a trip to a really great off-leash dog park where you can hike around with your dog along the Mississippi River.  We also went to a musical put on by our alma mater, and I bought lots and lots of craft supplies.  I'm gearing up for some major DIYs!  I also tried my hand at making homemade noodles from my Granny's recipe:

For about 10 ounces of noodles, you will need:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water
Put the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the center.

Add the salt, baking powder, vegetable oil, yolks, and egg to the well.

Mix together, adding water bit by bit until the mixture forms a ball.

Turn the ball out onto a well floured surface and knead until it is smooth and elastic, about ten minutes.

Cover the dough and let it rest for another ten minutes.

Divide the dough into four equal parts and roll them out paper thin.

Place the sheets on a towel and allow to dry for 20 minutes.

Using a pizza or pastry cutter, cut your pasta as desired.

Separate the pasta and allow to dry for another 2 hours. Store in the freezer to prevent the noodles from sticking together.

On Wednesday, I'll be sharing another Granny recipe featuring these noodles :)  Hopefully I made them correctly and they cook up deliciously!

  2. Wow! That is very ambitious. I love that you have so many recipes handed down from your grandma.

    I'm hoping to make soba noodles and salmon today, but they are coming straight out of the package. When you have a 6 year old, all meals have to be prepared in less than 20 minutes or you have a meltdown on your hands!

  3. Aw I'm sure these will be very delicious dear! :)) I crave noodles now hehe!
