I got inspired to look up an easy dessert recipe when I first bought my aroma rice cooker 7 years ago. I didn't really know how to cook then, so I thought I would get "adventurous" and make something other than rice.

At first I was slightly worried about the size of the cake since my rice cooker is larger than the standard Japanese rice cooker. However, as you will see, even if you have a bigger rice cooker, the pancake will turn out looking just fine!


Without further ado, if I can make it on my first attempt, anyone could. Let's get started!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: Depends on your rice cooker

Easy Rice Cooker Cake Ingredients

Ingredients:

1) 2 cups of pancake mix (I use bisquick)

2) 1 cup of milk

3) 2 eggs

4) 2-3 Tbsp of brown sugar or honey

5) 1-2 tsp of butter

6) 1/4 tsp of salt


Additional Ingredients:

7) A few drops of vanilla extract


I keep the amount of sugar low, as we will use sweet toppings like maple syrup, berries and banana, so the cake mix doesn't really need it. And especially if you have kids, who already have crazy amount of energy, let's just keep the sugar intake at bay for our own sake.


Instructions:

1) Mix the ingredients: milk, eggs, sugar (and/or honey) and butter in a mixing bowl. Tips: I warmed up the milk in the microwave first, for about 45 seconds.


2) Put the pancake flour into the wet mixture and combine well.


3) Pour the pancake mix into the rice cooker. You want to mix the ingredients in a separate bowel, so you won't scratch the surface of your rice cooker.


4) Press the regular "white rice" button and wait for the magic to happen.


First time around, when the rice cooker beeped that it's finished, the pancake was not ready.

The mixture was still looked pretty gooey, so I decided to press another round of "white rice" and see how it would turn out.

Since everyone has a different type/size of rice cooker, and different recipes of pancake mix, you will just have to play it by ear and estimate your cooking time from observation.


After seeing this, it's almost ready :) I pressed "keep warm" for another 5 minutes just so it gets a bit more baked. You can always insert a tooth pick to see if it's cooked all the way. And the result?!?!?

Voila!


Even if I didn't cook it myself, I would still say it looks pretty amazing, for someone with very limited cooking skills. Another thing? The house smelled so delicious, like I slaved away hours in the kitchen! I couldn't be more happy with the result.
