Lo Mein noodles from online.

Top Review by Joe L.

The hydration level of this dough is WAY off. Eggs are about 50g each @ around 75% hydration, milk is 245g per cup, and flour is about 120g per cup. This gives a hydration of 66%. That is like a pretty wet bread dough, not even close to noodles which are usually in the 40%ish range (or even lower). I'm guessing the author includes a LOT of flour on the work surface when they knead. No way this recipe as stated will get you noodles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First mix the milk and eggs in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Next add the flour, salt and baking powder and form a dough.
  3. Put your dough onto a floured surface and roll very thin. (I use a pasta roller - #3 setting).
  4. Cut into long (long equals longevity according to the Chinese ) noodles of your liking. We like a wider noodle, like a fettuccini.
