Jo Anne's notes for this recipe:
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! :)
