EASY RICE COOKER CAKE RECIPES: Why I Bake in My Rice Cooker


Hello, everyone! Welcome to my YouTube channel: Life of Pang. Can you guess what we’re making today? If you want to find out, make sure you watch this ’til the end. Let’s just mash our bananas. And you don’t want it too mushy or- Yeah, just don’t mash it too much. Just break it down like this. Let’s start out with our 8 tbsp of softened butter, which is about half a cup, and I did soften this in the microwave. And then mix in- now I substitute 1/2 cup of honey. And with my honey here, I usually like to put honey in my tea. And so I usually add some cinnamon inside it, too. Let’s mix that up. For this, we’ll add two eggs. And then three ripe banana that’s mashed. Let’s go ahead and add those. Mix that well, keeping consistency and then let’s go ahead and add our dry ingredients. 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Now it did ask for half a cup of raisins, but I’m doing a full cup of raisin and cranberry mixture… and then a cup of walnuts, chopped walnuts. As you can see, it’s really, really easy to make. All right, and that is our batter and we’re ready to bake. And guess what? We’re baking it in our rice cooker. Spraying my rice cooker, let’s pour in our batter. Let’s plug it up and time to just plug in our rice cooker… and go for our first cook. This will go into a cook for about five minutes and they will turn off and go into a warm state. And this is where you just have to let the rice cooker sit in that warm state for about 15-20 minutes…, come back, and press that cook button again. The reason it does that is because with rice cookers, it requires a lot of liquid in order to keep cooking. And so with baking it, it doesn’t have a lot of liquid so it keeps turning off. And that’s fine. We’re kind of slowly baking our cake in that warm state, anyway. I usually check about the third or fourth cook cycle. You don’t want to open your rice cooker too often because then you’re releasing all the warm air out of there that is cooking your cake. And for me, I keep forgetting to come back. So what I’ve done is… I pretty much put a timer on for about 20 minutes… And when the alarm goes off, I come back and just push this cook button again. And while this is cooking, let me explain to you as to why I used my rice cooker to bake instead of an oven. Here’s a picture of my kitchen. This is very typical of a Thai kitchen. What you notice is just a small counter space, a sink… The sink is a nice size. And that’s it. There is no stove…, there is no oven. And so if I do want to bake, I have to either go buy an oven… and, for the most part, I don’t have the room. Oh, my alarms going off. Time for another cook. Time for our second cooking. I’m smelling it, so every time I start to smell it, I want to just go ahead and… check it to see how we’re doing. Oh, look at that. Isn’t that beautiful? Smells so good. I’m just gonna test it with a chopstick here Hey. Look at that, it’s coming out clean already. Let’s just test more space. Well, looks like we still need maybe one or two more cycles, and then we should be done. Back to cooking. So, this just went through one more cycle. I want to go ahead and just check before I go for a second cycle. As you can see, it looks pretty good. I’ll just go down the middle here. And it looks pretty clean. Let’s try it in another area. And that looks pretty clean, too. So, you know, I don’t think I will go for another cycle, I think we are done. I’m going to go ahead and unplug the cooker and let it sit for 10 minutes or so. The best way to get it out is just actually to flip it upside down onto a plate. Upside down. Look at that. It is a little bit dark, but hey. It’s not burned and it’s gonna be tasty. Flip it over. I usually just use my hands. Let’s cut into this cake. It feels super moist. Beautiful. Thank you for watching my video. If you liked it, give me a thumbs up.

  8. Pang…!! I tried this cake for my life partners birthday 🎂🎉 n it worked well..!! Only thing is yu sprayed something before putting the batter into rice cooker. Watt was that..? First time I tried n really it came out well. Thanks pang..:))But I struggled in the matter of checking whether tat cake has cooked. Is there any tip to find out pang..?

  9. If you have the money, you could also buy an Air Fryer. Even the big ones don't take up much counter space, and you can grill, steam, bake, pretty much cook anything in them (helps if you get one with all the accessories). The bigger Air Fryers can take a whole chicken (roast), and you can double the cooking space inside with racks etc. Just a thought. People also cook desserts and cakes, bread and bread rolls in them too.
