Sweet Cinnamon Cold Noodle Dessert

how to make sweet cold chilled noodles
Last week’s Szechuan spicy cold noodle was such a big hit. I received a number of emails from some of you and I truly appreciate your support to this recipe oasis of mine.

Since a lot of you expressed great interest in more cold noodle recipes, I am going to share a unique dessert cold noodle recipe with you today.

In sharp contrast to last week’s spicy cold noodle recipe, this Sweet Cinnamon Cold Noodle Dessert is a fresh take on the classic sweet buttery cinnamon roll flavorful, making it one of the most unique desserts you’ll ever serve at your next dinner party!

As much as I want to take credit for creating the world’s first sweet cinnamon cold noodle dessert, I’ll admit that the dish was a product of a lucky break.

On one recent day, I was craving for some hot and fluffy cinnamon rolls but the weather was just too hot for me to turn on my stove. Coincidentally, I had just made some chilled noodles and with some experimenting, this delicious cold noodle dessert was born at Yi’s kitchen.

If you love those glorious and luscious cinnamon rolls (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), this easy and delicious cinnamon cold noodle recipe should definitely be on your to-try list.

More about today’s dessert recipe

Now let’s get back to today’s super cool dessert recipe.

While this cold noodle dish won’t bring you quite the fluffy, soft, doughy goodness that cinnamon rolls are known for, the flavor and texture combination of the dish is more than enough to make up for the loss.

Just like last week’s recipe, the key component of this dish are noodles. I used TMI egg lo mein noodles again and I was very happy with the final result. You can also use TMI plain noodle if the slight egg taste bothers you.

The cinnamon dressing is adopted from one of my favorite cinnamon roll recipes. Due to my personal preference, it’s not as sweet as some other recipes but you can easily adjust that by adding more brown sugar.

Lastly, the addition of apple strips not only adds a nice texture to the dish but the sourness of apple also counter-balances  the sweetness of the dressing. I also finished the dish with some toasted almond slices for extra crunch. If you are feeling adventurous, try adding other toppings such as raisins and nuts. It might turn out to be an even better recipe (if so please do report back here 🙂

Happy Cooking!

    This is the first time I have seen a noodle dessert. The ingredients blend well together and the noodles look great on the dish so I guess its a matter of getting over the mental block of only eating noodles as a main meal.

      Thanks Anna for your kind words. If Chinese noodle is not available in your area you can also substitute with fresh Italian pasta 🙂
