A HS friend of mind recently re-shared this recipe with me, and after years of chasing this specific taste... I finally found it again! It is, in my humble opinion, the best apple cake recipe out there.
I have this recipe book marked from:
I thought I'd post it here as insurance against losing it, should it be moved or something crazy should happen before I get to try it!
This recipe was created and named by Keo Sananikone, for his Thai restaurant, Mekong, located in Hawaii. Keo's recipes are some of my favorite ones in Thai cuisine. This dish has graced the pages of Bon Appetit, Food and Wine, Bazaar, and both the Los Angeles and New York Times. I can't wait to give it a whirl!
I usually order "Spring Rolls, Fresh" in Thai restaurants. The ingredients are slightly different than this... usually containing crabmeat and fried shredded omelet, topped with a sweet sauce and mustard (yellow)... but this one sounded yummy to my mommy, so we're gonna try it.
