  • 1 package thin noodles
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cook noodles, rinse and drain. Don't overcook the noodles, they will get too soft and won't mix well with the other ingredients.
  2. In a separate pot, combine oil and sugar and cook over medium-low heat. Stir until sugar is liquid and brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Be very careful when you brown the sugar. Many a pot has been hopelessly lost in this process. As you're browning the sugar it can turn from golden-brown to inky-black in seconds.
  3. Add noodles slowly, mixing continuously, on low heat until brown. Let cool, add eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Pour into a preheated oiled pan at 350 degrees F.
  5. Bake for one hour, until top forms crust.
