Rice Cooker Pandan Sponge Cake


I am beginning to fall in love with rice cooker cakes. They are always soft and moist. You can never over-baked a cake in a rice cooker, well... at least for me! Just keep a watch on your cake after the 35 minutes mark, once the skewer inserted came out clean, it's done!


If you've baked a pandan cake before, you will know that the pandan smell will fill your kitchen with a nice pandan aroma. It's the same with cooking in a rice cooker. The pandan smell filled my kitchen as soon as it started to cook in the rice cooker. Aside from the fragarnt pandan aroma, my kitchen was also filled with a soothing coconut smell. The smells will hit you first before you eat.

This pandan sponge cake is spongy, soft and moist. It's a perfect cake to pair with a nice hot milk coffee! Yumm... I took a video to show you guys on the texture. Please excuse my clumsiness with trying to peel with one hand (I was holding the camera with the other hand).


Enjoy my recipe!

RICE COOKER PANDAN SPONGE CAKE
(Recipe adapted from Kitchen101)
Prep Time  : 20 mins
Cook Time : 50 mins
Total Time : 1 hour 10 mins
Makes       : One 8" cake

Ingredients:
5 eggs
120g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
130g sugar
50ml coconut milk
30ml water
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
8 - 10 pcs pandan leaves
Butter for coating

Directions:
You will need a rice cooker bowl (approx. 8"), coat bottom and sides generously with butter.

1. Sift baking powder and cake flour into a bowl. Set aside until needed.

2. Blend 30ml water with pandan leaves. Strain and squeeze out the juice, measure 20ml of pandan water. Set aside until needed.

3. Separate the egg whites from the yolk. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat egg whites until frothy. Then gradually add in sugar and beat until stiff peak. Add in the egg yolks, one at a time and beat until fully incorporated.

4. In another mixing bowl, combine pandan water, coconut milk, vegetable oil and half of the previously sieved flour mixture. Mix well using a whisk.

5. Add in 1/3 of the egg batter into the flour batter, and whisk gently to combined. Add in the other half of the previously sieved flour mixture, and again whisk gently to combined. When everything is well combined, add in the rest of the egg batter and using a whisk, mix well in a fold motion. Lastly using a spatula, get to the bottom of the batter and fold to mix evenly.

6. Pour batter into the rice cooker bowl and drop the bowl from a height on the kitchen countertop to release large air bubbles. Do it a few times.

7. Cook batter for 40 - 50 minutes, or until skewer inserted came out clean.

8. To Unmould: When done, let it rest in the rice cooker bowl for a few minutes. The cake would slightly shrink, making it to detach itself from all sides. If some parts are still sticking, gently tilt the cake to the opposite side so that the weight of the cake would pull itself away from the sides. After that, you may turn the rice cooker bowl upside down, with a wire rack to catch it at the bottom. Leave to cool before slicing the cake.

Notes:
● I am using a 5.5cup (uncooked) rice cooker. The base of the rice cooker bowl is approx. 8".

● By using a whisk during mixing in Step 5, it will help to reduce the deflation of the egg batter.

Stir-fry Mushrooms with Butter and Soy Sauce


This dish is very similar to the soy butter pasta that I've cooked few weeks back which I shared in my Instagram (pasta recipe in my Insta post below). Both dishes uses the combination of butter and soy sauce which is a perfect match, in my opinion. My children & I, we all lurvee the creaminess of the butter meets with the savory of the soy sauce and the fragrant of both flavors combined is indescribable.

If you have yet to try this combination, please do give it a try! But be warned, you might end up falling in love with it!

Add ๐Ÿฅ•, garlic, onion & ๐Ÿ„ and cook until the ๐Ÿ„ has soften. Ladle in a scoop of pasta water. Add butter & soy sauce. (If you hv sake and mirin, you may add 1 Tbsp each now).

Rice Cooker Honey Cake


...partially steamed in rice cooker, the cake turned out to be really moist and soft...
Would you believe me if I told you that this cake is made from rice cooker? Yes, it is! My hubby was so surprised that a rice cooker could bake such a nice cake. I, myself, I knew a rice cooker could bake cake but I thought it wouldn't be as good as those baked ones from the oven. But it turned out to be just as good, if not better! Because it was partially steamed in the rice cooker, the cake turned out to be really moist and soft. The texture is fine like cheesecake except that it has a subtle taste of honey which lingers in your mouth for quite some time after eating. If you love honey, you are going to love this cake!


Remember to coat the rice cooker bowl generously with butter. If your rice cooker bowl is still in good condition with no scratches, your cake will turn out to be beautiful with nice smooth shinny skin.

Hope you'll enjoy my recipe!

Appetizing Orange Chicken


This sweet, tangy and savory Orange Chicken is the new craze in my family. We could eat a whole bowl of rice just with this dish. Even my children were quick to finish up their rice, thanks to this Orange Chicken. It's really appetizing and the more you eat, the more you want it!

1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1 Tbsp rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Marinade
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten

Sauce (Combined in a small bowl)
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Tbsp white vinegar
100ml orange juice
50ml water
1 tsp orange zest

Thickening (Combined)
1 tsp tapioca starch
1 Tbsp water

Garnish
1 thinly slice orange
1/2 tsp orange zest
Chopped spring onions

Directions:
1. In a bowl, combine salt, white pepper, egg and chicken cubes, and mix well. Let sit for 10 - 15 minutes.

2. In another bowl, combine tapioca starch, rice flour and baking powder. Coat each chicken cubes in the flour mixture and place them in a layer on a large plate. Do not stack them on top of each others. Allow 5 minutes for the chicken cubes to rest before deep frying them. Deep fried till golden brown. Dish up and set aside.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok, sautรฉ garlic and ginger till fragrant. Add in the sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Thicken the sauce with tapioca starch slurry. Add in the previously deep fried chicken cubes and stir to coat the chicken cubes evenly.

4. Dish up and garnish with orange slice, orange zest and spring onion. Enjoy!

Notes:
● It is important to let the chicken cubes to rest after coating them with flour, to give time for the flour to combine with the chicken.

● To get crispy deep fried chicken, fry two times. The first time, over medium high heat until light golden brown. The second time, over high heat until golden brown.

● 2 oranges will yield approx. 100ml juice.

● Taste the sauce mixture first before you cook. You may need to adjust it depending on your orange juice. If it is too sour, add more sugar. If it is too sweet, add more vinegar or soy sauce.
