Butter Noodles

    2 hours 10 min

    These noodles are similar to homemade pasta, only they have the addition of butter and baking powder. The dough is easy to work with, but you do need to set aside 90 minutes drying time before cooking them.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 eggs
    • 50g butter, melted and cooled
    • 150g plain flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr30min drying  ›  Ready in:2hr10min 

    1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and melted butter together with a fork. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt until dough becomes stiff. Knead on a lightly floured surface or in the bowl for a few minutes to blend completely. Divide the dough into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a sheet about 1.5mm thick. Place each sheet onto a dry cloth and set aside for 30 to 45 minutes to partially dry.
    2. When the sheets are somewhat dry, roll up one at a time into a loose spiral and cut into strips as wide as you want using a sharp knife. Spread out the noodles to dry for about 1 hour before cooking or storing in freezer containers. To use frozen noodles, thaw in the container before using.
    3. To cook the noodles, drop into rapidly boiling water or stock and cook until tender, 7 to 10 minutes.

    A wonderful noodle recipe! Adding the baking powder makes for a delicious buttery noodle. Made these with my young grandchildren who loved getting their hands on the dough. We did use a pasta machine to roll them out and made two sizes of noodles. One thin and one nice and thick. This dough is so easy to work with! They were dried on a clothes rack set up in the kitchen. They went into a a wonderful turkey broth using up the last of the Thanksgiving turkey. TRY THIS RECIPE! It will not disappoint! Made these with my young grandchildren who loved getting their hands on the dough. We used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, with chicken broth, carrots,celery, and onions. We did use a pasta machine to roll the dough out and made two kinds of noodles. One thin, and one thick and plump. This dough is so easy to work with. Noodles were hung on a folding clothes rack to dry. What a wonderful filling meal they made.  -  02 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made these very easy noodles for the first time ever and they are great! I put them in homemade chicken noodle soup and my husband said it was the best soup he had ever tasted. These will be made every time I make chicken noodle soup for sure. Thanks for the recipe!  -  30 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
