a rice cooker is as follows:

Tips for

Baking the Perfect Rice Cooker Cake

Just like baking a cake in an oven, there are ways to improve your chances of baking a perfect cake in a rice cooker. Here are my tips, and hopefully, they’ll help you bake a perfect rice cooker cake:

Make sure your

  1. eggs are oversized and at room temperature. Make sure your
  2. baking powder is still active. You can mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder with 1/4 cup of boiling water. If it bubbles rigorously, it is good to use, otherwise use a new can of baking powder.
  3. Be sure to beat your egg whites to medium peak. This means that the beak should hold its shape quite well, but the tip or spout curls in on itself when the whisk is lifted.
  4. Make sure the melted butter is not too hot. The best way to try is to dip a finger and if it feels warm, it’s good.
  5. When adding dry ingredients, be sure to fold very carefully and gently. Do not fold too much, or the cake will be hard and dense. Simply fold enough to incorporate the dry ingredients.
  6. Once you have finished folding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Immediately pour the dough into the pot and cook/bake the cake. The dough should not rest too long before baking.
  7. Do not open the lid of the rice cooker to check the cake before 4 cycles of “cooking” and “heating”. Doing this can cause the pie to deflate.
