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
- Coat the inner pot with vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix honey (maple syrup in my case) and milk, set aside.
- Soak eggs in warm water for approximately 5 minutes, set aside. (I’ve skipped this step from the get-go.)
- In large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar on high speed.
- 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)
- Add flour. Stir gently until ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Transfer mixture into the inner pot and close the lid.
- Press the “cake” setting to start the cooking process.
- The rice cooker will shut off automatically after approximately 55 minutes.
- 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.
