Yellow Noodle Cake
250g Fresh flat yellow noodles
6 Large eggs (70 each)
1 cup/250ml Whipping cream
200g Spinach, roughly shredded
20g Shallot, chop finely
1/2 cup finely grated Parmensan cheese or 100g grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp Salt and a dash of pepper
Grease (all sides up) round cake pan and line the base with baking paper.
Place noodles in a heat-proof colander or sieve and pour hot boiling water over to rinse and clear excess oil. Drain dry and rinse under cold tap water and drain dry again.
Preheat oven at 180 degrees. Whisk eggs and cream together in a large bowl. Stir in spinach, shallots, cheddar cheese and noodles. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour mixture into prepared pan.(a 20 cm /8 inch deep round cake pan) Add more grated cheddar cheese on top.
Bake for 50 minutes until set. Cover with a foil if the top browns too quickly.
Stand in pan for 10 mins, then run a round-bladed knife around the sides and turn onto a rack lined with baking paper.
Serve warm, cut into wedges.
Have you ever thought of making noodles into a cake? Sounds interesting, huh? Here is the pretty noodle cake that I made before the weekend. The end results weren't bad at all, a little crispy on top and the inside is soft like tofu.
