A Spicy Noodle Cake. I will eat it on a plate. I will eat it on a date. I will eat it out of hand. And I will eat it made of sand. I will eat it in a box. And I will eat it with a fox. And I will eat it in a house. And I will eat it with a mouse. I could eat it here and there. Say! I could eat it ANYWHERE.
I’ve reverted to Dr. Seuss (almost) to make a point. A point I don’t want you to miss. May I have a drum-roll, please…
This is the closest I’ll probably EVER come on this blog to making kid food. Still, I’m not quite sure it counts as a “healthy snack for kids” or not. You may even have to pull back on the sambal oelek (or not?). But I promise you, your kids will gobble this spicy noodle cake up.
Well, not that I’m an expert, but this is the kind of food I gobbled up as a kid. So much so that to this day whenever I’m faced with extra noodles of any kind, I turn them into a spicy noodle cake. Well, maybe not always a spicy noodle cake. Sometimes I make a cheesy noodle cake.
Spicy Noodle Cake
Today’s version has an Asian vibe so I used Chinese lo mein noodles. That’s because I came across another noodle cake lover in Jean-Georges Vongerichten recently. I’ve probably had his cookbook Jean-Georges since 1998 and never noticed he had a spicy noodle cake recipe in there too.
One cake, Two cake, Hot cake, Mild cake,
Black cake, Blue cake, Old cake, New cake.
It might just please you oodles,
This one’s one made of noodles.
