Noodles With A Twist! ~ Yellow Noodle Cake
I love noodles especially yellow noodles. They can be prepared in many ways either stir fry or in soup and I can never get tired of eating them everyday. But hey! 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. This recipe appeared in the July issue of The Woman’s Weekly. The end results weren’t bad at all, a little crispy on top and the inside is soft like tofu. The taste is almost like my Ham and Spinach Quiche but I think I’ll add some bacon bits next time. That will definitely make this noodle cake more flavourful.
- 250g Fresh flat yellow noodles
- 6 Large eggs (70 each)
- 1 cup/250ml Whipping cream
- 200g Spinach, roughly shredded
- 20g Shallot, chop finely
- ½ cup finely grated Parmensan cheese (I used 100g Cheddar cheese, grated)
- ½ tsp Salt and a dash of pepper
- Grease (all sides up) round cake pan and line the base with baking paper. (Use a 20 cm /8 inch deep round cake pan )
- 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. 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.
I realized and modified a bit your cake recipe. Great result! Thank you.

Hi Marlyse, Your noodle cake looks awesome. I definitely want to try your version one day 🙂
Hi…can share ur maggi mee recipe?
Hi Xiacia, I got the recipe from Women's Weekly. Must search for the recipe, not sure where I misplaced it.
This is weird but it indeed looks interesting. I never had this idea before. Very creative way to make something out of the ordinary. It is quite fun to try at home.
What an interesting way to serve noodles! I'll have to give it a try.
This looks very good, and no I never made a noodle cake before. O do like the spinach and cheddar add in. Yummy!
I think adding parmesan cheese not bad too.
Ann, this yellow noodle cake of yours looks so flavourful.
Its a new way for having yellow noodles and more easy to take..heehee just cut into pieces and eat..^^
Thanks for sharing ya!
MuiMui, hahaa…you're right and can share with 5-8 people. No need to keep for next day. BTW how come I can't access to your blog?
What a great twist! Looks very tasty, Ann.
what a creative dish! really never thought of noodles in cakes. I've only seen mee suah in kuih, pan fried style and i think that's quite creative too!
Lena, I was also attracted to this recipe using yellow noodle. The end result is not bad.
This is really indeed very special! I love yellow noodles too, and making it like a cake is really special! Yum! :))
Bee, hope you try this one day with adding extra meat into it.
I've seen it done with pasta but this is a great idea using the flat noodles. I haven't tried this yet but a great twist to a quiche, I must say. Great pics!
Thank you Ping. I think pasta takes longer time to cook and using yellow noodles would be much easier. I've a recipe using maggie mee too 🙂
What a creative recipe. I love it! If I may, I’d like to invite you to submit your photos to the new YumGoggle, a photo sharing site with the philosophy that if you worked hard to cook it and photograph it, we should show it off! Hope to see you there soon!
Thanks for the invitation. Will have a look later.
Very creative and new idea of eating yellow noodles, will have a try one day
I had something similar at a potluck once. I really loved it, but as time went on I forgot about it entirely. Thanks for the recipe, and more importantly the reminder.
Thank you for your comment and visiting to my blog 🙂
Really special and haven't try it before, I will mark down for this coming holidays!
Hope you like it after trying.
wow.. very creative dish.. looks delicious :)..
very special meal. I like spinach quiche. Looks delicious woh
I never thought to use noodles as a quiche – this is a brilliant usage.
Noodle cake, how inventive! Noodles work well for quite alot of things. I do agree with you however maybe you do need some form of meet, maybe bacon, or even beef?
Hi Lee, I prefer to add bacon or ham for more savory.
Wow, a whole new dish, very creative indeed. WHo could have thought of using noodles to make a quiche-like-cake? Very, very interesting recipe & it looks very delicious! Yes, please pass me a big slice to taste!
Jessie, Sometime we need to try something savory beside sweet cakes, so this is the one 🙂 Can give you the whole cake as it is very easy to make.
Ann , you can never go wrong with more bacon ! lol Such a unique way of using Asian noodles ! Love the texture and flavor of this dish !
Thank you Anne.
This is something new! Some sort of Asian style noodle quiche. Nice!
Soft inside and a crispy top – I would not have imagined to use yellow noodles this way.
This one no need to use the cake mixer, have a try.
Very interesting, and very pretty. the Asian version of a quiche 🙂
What an interesting dish; the texture and flavour
It definitely reminds me a of quiche… noodle quiche! The side view is very pretty.
