Rice cooker cake recipe
This rice cooker cake is cooked in your rice cooker. Yes, that's right - rice cooker! It looks like a golden buttery cake, uses pancake batter and is so easy that you can get the kids to help you whip it up. What's not to love?
- 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 cups (375ml) milk
Step 1. Place flour, sugar and eggs into a bowl and whisk together while adding milk at a little at a time until all ingredients are incorporated.
Step 2. Pour cake mixture into the bowl of a rice cooker and set the rice cooker to cook. If you have an automatic rice cooker, you may need to push the button down 2-3 times until your cake is cooked.
Step 3. Cook until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean or the cake has a smooth, dry surface. This should take around 20-25 minutes.
Step 4. Slice and serve with berries and ice cream or maple syrup.
- Don't open the lid of the rice cooker while this is cooking. It is just like opening the oven when you are cooking a cake. It lets all of the heat out.
- Most rice cookers have a non-stick coating but if yours does not then you need to give it a spray of cooking oil before you pour in the batter.
- I used a very simple rice cooker and had to set it to cook twice, which took about 20-25 minutes.
- I've been cooking panckes since I was kneehigh but can I ever remember the right quantities of ingredients? Nope. Which is why I have this Basic pancakes recipe bookmarked so that I end up with pancakes that are light and fluffy.
- This rice cooker cake uses a pancake batter but if you want a more traditional pancake then this Lemon and sugar pancake recipe is the way to go. It's my fave as it brings back memories of Pancake Day when I was a kid.
- Kids always love food that looks a little bit different whuch is why this Purple pancake recipe is a weekend winner at our place. The addition of pureed blueberries to the batter gives the panckes their hue and a nod to nutrition!
- Another healthy-ish twist to panckes is adding mixed berries to this Spotty pancake recipe. Kids love them and they're getting a hit of fruit to boot.
- Chocolate and pancakes are a match made in heaven which is why this Choc chip pancke recipe is such a hit. The choc chips melt slightly so they're gooey and oozey and to die for.
- If you really want to turn the dial up on the chocolate flavour then you need to go for this Chocolate pancake recipe. Not something I'd go for as a breakfast recipe but as a special dessert with vanilla ice cream and strawberries? Oh yes.
- Another dessert-style pancke recipe is this Apple and cinnamon pancake recipe. Special enough to be a dessert and light enough not to have to lie down afterwards. Bring. It. On.
- There's always one dodgy banana that comes up bruised and battered from a lunch box. Fortunately there's this 2-ingredient banana pancake recipe that uses it up. Yummo.
- If you make pancakes a lot, consider this Bulk pancake mix recipe. Keep it in an airtight container and you're good to go whenever the fancy takes you.
- I love a retro dessert and this one has pancakes too. Try this Peaches and custard pancake recipe for a tasty blast from the past.
