Fat-Free Cake

Found this recipe in the rice cooker manual, and gave it a shot. It tastes real good! I decided to share it with our Bible study fellowship, and they all love it.

I will probably use this recipe to introduce variations on the theme.


  • 5 eggs, large
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.75 cups flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons of honey (I substituted with maple syrup from the get-go)
  • 0.25 cups milk


  1. Coat the inner pot with vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix honey (maple syrup in my case) and milk, set aside.
  3. Soak eggs in warm water for approximately 5 minutes, set aside. (I’ve skipped this step from the get-go.)
  4. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar on high speed.
  5. When the eggs get soft and foamy, add honey/milk (maple syrup/milk) mixture. Continue to beat until the mixture forms the hard peaks. (never understood what “hard peaks” meant)
  6. Add flour. Stir gently until ingredients are evenly mixed.
  7. Transfer mixture into the inner pot and close the lid.
  8. Press the “cake” setting to start the cooking process.
  9. The rice cooker will shut off automatically after approximately 55 minutes.
  10. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove cake by turning it upside down onto cooling rack. Cool and serve.

For boxed cake mix: Any brand of boxed cake mix sold in the U.S. can be baked in this rice cooker. Follow the instructions on the package.

With all that said, I also gotta say, the SANYO ECJ-M100S rice cooker is really, really versatile! I’ve used it for making rice, soups, porridge, and now cakes too. At $60 when I bought it, it was and still is definitely a steal.
