Mango Pie in Rice Cooker
An electric rice cooker is super convenient for making rice, but you can also bake a cake in it. Nice for pudding at the campsite (if you have electricity). A cake in a rice cooker is ready in no time.
By the way, you don’t need a fancy cooker with a cake setting; you can bake a cake with a simple “on” and “off” rice cooker.
I have already made my rice cooker cake with apple and mango, but you can also leave fruit out.
See how it’s done? Watch my video here or continue reading and follow the recipe.
Cake in rice cooker recipe
- 1/2 mango in slices
- 2 eggs
- 100 grams of sugar
- 50 grams of flour
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- grated coconut
- berries as topping
- Cut half a mango into 1,5 centimeters slices
- Grease the rice cooker dish with butter and cover with the mango slices.
- Beat two eggs with a fork.
- Add sugar and salt.
- Pour in the melted butter.
- Stir the flour into the batter gently.
- Pour the batter onto the mango.
- Make a thin layer of grated coconut on top.
- Put the lid on the rice cooker and bake the cake in half an hour until done.
- If the rice cooker switches to “keep warm”, wait a few minutes and turn on again.
- Check whether the cake is cooked with a skewer or fork; if nothing sticks to the fork, the cake is done.
- Let the cake cool down and turn it over on a plate.
- Sprinkle some grated coconut on top and garnish with berries.
I make this cake regularly when I don’t have anything appetizing around and I don’t want to make a huge cake out of the oven. You can also surprise friends with a cake at the campsite.
I don’t work with beaters or devices, but stir the batter with a fork. Then I pour it on fruit that I have available such as apple, mango, kiwi, banana or pear.
Another tip: instead of just greasing the form, you can also place baking paper on the bottom. Then it is guaranteed to come out completely.
Rice cooker recipes
I can’t live without my rice cooker. First, it is nice to have more space in my kitchen (my rice cooker lives in my pantry). It is also very convenient to have rice on the ‘keep-warm setting’ for long evenings filled with friends and food.
In addition, I often make other rice dishes in my rice cooker, such as nasi kuning (Indonesian yellow rice) or a fantastic Japanese rice where you build the dish in the rice cooker. At the bottom, I place the meat or tofu and on top of the rice the vegetables and rice with ketjap.
