Nissin Cup Noodles Bread #ramenbread #UseYourNoodleContest

I did say my last loaf of bread would be the last for a while, but then I saw that Nissin Foods was doing a contest (#USEYOURNOODLECONTEST) having to do with innovation for their 50th Anniversary of the introduction of Cup Noodles. I really like making bread from instant noodles; some of you might think I’m a little off my rocker, but it’s fun, completely different from what I’ve been doing, and it’s really neat to put a bunch of things together and have something come out nicely. Whether I win the contest or not (it would be nice to win), I’m happy with what I did here. Let’s check it out =- I used one noodle block and the seasoning from 10 Cup Noodles Chicken flavor! Let’s go!

Nissin Cup Noodles Bread – United States

Video

This was a tricky video to do – my GoPro overheated and shut off at one point. Regardless, I think it’s a cinematic masterwork of somewhat decent quality.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Noodles Chicken flavor cup, hydrated and drained
  • 9 Cup Noodles Chicken flavor, opened and all seasonings and vegetables dumped into a bowl
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 1 more Cup Noodles Chicken flavor – steeped with as little boiling water as possible
  • sour cream
  • processed cheese

Method

  1. Steep one of the Cup Noodles and as this is going on, open 9 Cup Noodles and add the loose vegetables and seasonings to a bowl
  2. Add water, oil, and sugar to bread pan
  3. Add 1 cup flour, then drained noodles, seasonings and veggies, second cup flour, and finally yeast
  4. Set bread machine to BASIC and LIGHT crust. Watch as it kneads – mine ended up with an incredibly well behaved dough ball
  5. Once done, let cool for 45 minutes

Triangle Pocket Sandwiches

  1. Slice bread and add bottom half to sandwich maker
  2. Add some noodles and slice of cheese, then top with a second slice of bread (cut as thinly as possible as I ran into an issue with that)
  3. Accompany with a dipping sauce of a little of the Cup Noodles broth and sour cream with some black pepper
  4. Top with thinly sliced spring onion

A light colored loaf. You can see the vegetables peeking out of the crust on the sides.

Finished (click to enlarge). The bread was very good – the flavor from the Cup Noodles was very light though – if the seasoning was in a sachet, it would have come through a little better. The light chicken taste was nice, though. The vegetables remained hydrated and worked very well – they could be found throughout the loaf! The little sandwiches were definitely on the dry side, however the chicken flavored broth with the sour cream and pepper really helped a lot and the pairing was excellent. A nice way to spend a morning and afternoon.
