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

Directions

  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.
