homemade egg noodles being placed on a cooking rack to dry
Ingredient List
For the Noodles:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large beaten eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cool water (68°F)
For the Noodles
  • In medium bowl, sift flour and salt together. Beat together cool water and eggs; stir into flour mixture until well combined.

  • Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 8 minutes. Cover with a wet cheesecloth or towel for 30 minutes.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out into a thin sheet, about 1/6-inch thick. With sharp knife, cut into 1/8-inch-wide strips for fine noodles, 1/3-inch-wide strips for broad noodles. If you have a noodle cutter, cut immediately. Separate by lightly tossing with a dusting of flour.

  • Noodles may be used immediately or frozen in a sealed container or bag.

  • To cook fresh noodles, bring 10 to 12 cups water or broth to boil; gradually add noodles. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes.
