Rice Cooker Cake

I MADE IT THRU THE DAY!! YAHOO!! SUPER DUPER AMAZING! I seriously thought I will not be able to make it through today. I think those of you that have read my previous post will know EXACTLY what I am talking about now. I am still having a headache, the nagging type that is not too bad that stops me from getting up from bed (SIGH!) but bad enough to make me feeling depressed and wish that it is the end of the day already.

Babe is late today because I had a meeting at 6pm and no idea what time it will finish. And luckily also he didnt come early because the meeting finished at 6.35pm. If he had come the usual time, i.e. before 6.30pm, he would have to wait awhile for me to be done lor. Poor colleague of mine that is carpooling with me still waiting with me too. So, since I have to wait and definitely not in the mood to do more work, decided to update my blog and bore you guys with what I did during the weekend.

So, other than cleaning, cooking and ironing (yar, the usual stuff..sigh), I actually tried to bake a cake with the rice cooker! Reason for using the rice cooker to bake a cake? Well, I do not have a normal electric oven. And I am desperately in need to let my baking desire free. So, I saw somewhere that people can actually bake with the rice cooker. So, that is what I did. I bought one of those simple ready chocolate cake mix that claim to be super moist since I am experimenting.

And the result? I think it turn not pretty good. The cake is fluffy and yummy but the cake mix was not so great. Not enough chocolatey taste! Ok Ok..let me show off some photos:

Hi Kok,
Err..actually I use the ready cake mix that only require me to add water, oil and eggs. The rest of the ingredient oredi mix in it one...

Hi Rose,
Yah! But cannot do those complicated cakes lar. Just simple ones like chocolate or butter cake should be ok.

Hey....I think your choc cake turned out pretty good! Your rice cooker must be one of those multi-functional ones rite? :p

Hi 2SuperHeroes,
Thanks! Planning to be more adventurous next time and try to bake a cheesecake in it :P

And yap,it has a function for cakes but I think normal rice cooker can do this also?
