__________ ! Mini Chocolate Cake ! _________

By Cindy A.

You know i can be really impulsive when a sudden thought or inspiration hits me and then i would wanna do it or get hold of it as quickly as possible? It can be a very small thing such as a sudden crave to bake a cake. And whats interesting was that i just realized i have never used my rice cooker to bake before ( it comes with baking function ) What a waste i thought. It was in the middle of the night before i slept and i told myself i needed to do that straightaway the next day! Haha. So i did. With no expectation or anything, Yayy. I loved it! It was pretty easy, not much hassle to speak. The texture was somewhere between a sponge cake and a pudding cake. Moist, fluffy and soft. I tried it when it was still warm. I mean you can't go too wrong with chocolate! Well, it did feel good to finally not wasting something so useful, my Toshiba rice cooker! :)

EDITED* didn't thought of typing out the recipe for it isn't common for people to bake their cake in a rice cooker? Because not all rice cooker bakes, so you gotta make sure yours can! The last few steps of the recipe can only apply to a Toshiba rice cooker.

Here it is.

Recipe  ~  Rice Cooker Mini Chocolate Cake
- Ingredients for Cake -
Butter 65 gm
Castor Sugar 60 gm
Eggs 1
Sifted Self Raising Flour 75 gm
Chocolate Chips 15 gm
Vanilla Essence 1/3 tsp
- Ingredients for Cocoa Mixture -
Cocoa Powder 15 gm
Sugar 35 gm
Water 55 ml
- Direction -
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and beat for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add vanilla essence. Fold in flour and cocoa mixture alternatively, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Add chocolate chips and mix well. Pour mixture evenly into greased rice cooker pot.
Close the lid and cook on Congee setting until cooker beeps, repeat (cook on Congee setting until cooker beeps). Then select Rapid cook and cook until cooker beeps. Do not open the lid while baking.

When cake is cool, remove the inner rice bowl and place a serving plate over the top of the bowl, before flipping the cake out.

Decorate cake before serving.

As you can see, i was just experimenting so i didn't do the chocolate frosting on the cake.

Of course a nice frosting makes the cake looks more appealing and delicious. :)

Serves 4.

I tried the cake again the next day and i thought it was even better when its cooled. And my sister in law liked it too, heehee ♥
