Here is a basic Chinese cake noodle recipe for just about anything that you would want to put on top of it.
A member had asked what cake noodles were in my other post for Chinese Minute Chicken Bites, so I decides that it would be great to post the cake noodle recipe, too! :)

Ingredients

1/2 lb
fresh chinese egg noodles, or any oriental noodle
6 c
enough water to boil the noodles in
1/8 tsp
sesame oil, or just enough to keep the noodles from sticking together
2 Tbsp
peanut oil to fry the noodles, or you can also use vegetable oil
NOTE: DO NOT USE A LOT OF SESAME OIL AS IT HAS
A VERY STRONG, NUTTY FLAVOR AND CAN SOMETIMES
OVER POWER THE OTHER FLAVORS IN YOUR DISH.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring the water to boil and add the fresh noodles to it.
2
Boil the noodles till tender but firm.
3
Drain the noodles in a colander and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
4
In a large skillet pan, heat about 2 Tbsp. of peanut oil, you can use vegetable oil, too.
5
Move the pan so that the oil is well distributed.
6
With just a few drops of sesame oil, mix with the well drained noodles so that they won't stick together.
7
Add all the noodles to the skillet and evenly distribute the noodles so that they cover the whole bottom of the pan.
8
Don't walk away, watch the noodles as they start browning, when it is golden brown, gently and carefully flip it over and do the same for the other side.
9
When it is done, place it on a cutting board and cut them into about 2 1/2-inch squares.
10
Place on serving platters and garnish with your favorite Chinese entree.
