I love anything flavored, even egg whites, like from Muscle Egg(disclaimer: I'm NOT sponsored by them!). Last year, I made several birthday cake-themed recipes but this year, I'm going to do a couple of cake-batter themed recipes. The taste and smell of these egg whites is just like cake batter. Each single-sever bottle has the equivalent of 15 egg whites in it, plus it's pasteurized, so it's drinkable too, with 38 grams of protein per bottle!.
Ok, enough evangelizing the product. Actually, speaking of egg whites, anything you can use plain 'ol eggs for, you can substitute egg whites in place of it, even noodles, though granted, the dough was very hard to knead and I assume that wouldn't be the case had I used actual eggs instead.
I really should get a pasta maker because every time I make pasta or noodles from scratch, they end up thick and chewy. I've gotten used to the taste but my dad, not so much. You wouldn't know it from the video but my dad spit the noodle out off camera, saying it was too chewy.
I wanted to taste cake batter in almost every bite so I put a birthday cake pop on top of the noodles. That way some of the frosting melts onto the noodles, thereby flavoring them. But dipping the noodles in some soy sauce really brings out the cake batter flavor too!

Makes 2-3 servings
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A large bowl
A rolling pin
2-3 small bowls
A large saucepot
A slotted spoon
For the noodles:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus some more to coat your surface
Little over 1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup cake batter egg whites(see HELPFUL LINK)
50-64 oz. vegetable broth
Serve with birthday cake pops and soy sauce(highly recommended)
1. Put the first three ingredients inside a large bowl and mix all of them together until you get a dough. Knead the dough inside the bowl until all the crumbly dough becomes one dough ball.
2. Flour your surface and put the dough ball onto the surface. Knead the dough a little more until it's hard to knead.
3. Flatten the dough ball as much as possible using a rolling pin. Flour the rolling pin so no dough gets stuck on it.
4. Cut the flattened dough into strips with a knife. If the cut noodles are too thick, fold and flatten them with your fingers. Break apart the noodles in half if they are too long for your liking. Place all of the noodles on the rims of 2-3 small bowls.
5. Pour the vegetable broth inside a large saucepot and bring it to a boil. Once the broth is boiling, submerge the noodles into the broth. You might have to do multiple batches. Let the noodles cook in the broth for 5-10 minutes. After 5 minutes, take a noodle out, run it under cold water, and try to see if it's cooked enough.
6. Once the noodles are fully cooked, retrieve them with a slotted spoon and into a small bowl. If the noodles can't be retrieved with a slotted spoon because they're too long, just use a fork instead.
7. Top a bowl of noodles with a birthday cake pop and dip the noodles in soy sauce to really bring out that cake batter flavor.
