[ROUNDUP] - Rice Cooker Cake Challenge #1 (Apr 2014)

Here is the roundup for my Rice Cooker Cake Challenge #1. First of all, a BIG THANK YOU to the bloggers who have shown their unwavering support and taken the leap of faith to the "dark side" i.e. rice cooker baking. I am really heartened by the overwhelming response. At first I thought I would only get maximum 5 entries including my own, but as time went by, the event slowly gathered momentum and a total of 15 entries were submitted at the end of the month. Yippee!!! This event may not mean anything to bakers who are used to baking in the oven, but this will definitely be a good resource for those who do not have an oven at their disposal.

This event has given me a great opportunity to learn from my fellow blogger friends. I have learnt from Charmaine of MiMi Bakery House that you can bake/cook a chiffon cake in a 5-inch chiffon cake paper mould in the rice cooker and yet make it look like a chiffon cake from the oven, and you can use waffle mix to make a peach almond tart. :)

Violet from Violet's Kitchen has shown me that you can bake/cook a lovely orange marble cake in the rice cooker which may leave you wondering if it was made in the oven. :)

My dear friend Nasifriet, a fellow blogger living in Belgium, after getting her cake burnt once, has found the ultimate solution to baking in her 1-button 19-year-old National rice cooker - double protection by lining with aluminium foil and parchment paper! Her subsequent 2 cakes were so successful that her son kept asking her if she is gonna make RCC every week for her family. Hats off to her perseverance and tenacity! :)

Thea Ong (thealovetea) who is also an avid rice cooker baker has submitted her "no mixer no oven rice cooker banana cake", and has given me inspiration for rice cooker breads from her blog, that will be my challenge for next month. :)

Chocolate + Pumpkin + Rice Cooker = ?
Baking Scientist (bakingscientistexperiment) has given a nice twist to my rice cooker moist chocolate banana cake, she swapped bananas for pumpkin and whipped up a beautiful chocolate pumpkin cake. Thank you for having trust in my recipe. :)

If you are interested in rice cooker baking, don't miss our Rice Cooker Cake Challenge #2 which will be held in the month of May, ending 31 May. We will be making more rice cooker cakes and even attempting rice cooker breads. So stay tuned to this blog for more updates!

I have another short announcement to make. I have made a resolution to go through all my recipe books and bake some recipes from my own books instead of scouring the internet for recipes and leaving them neglected and covered in dust. I shall call these recipes "My Treasured Recipes" as these are recipe books lugged all the way from Singapore to Belgium. As a start, I will be pairing up with Mimi Bakery House and we will be baking Alex Goh bread and cake recipes in the month of June and July. So if you like Alex Goh's recipes, do mark the dates in your calendar and join us in the blog hop. More details to come later...

  1. Hi Miss B,

    Thank YOU for hosting this most challenging blog-hop event ever!. I enjoyed the from once-upon-a-time insane journey to a somewhat addictive adventure :-) What can I say? It was FUN!! My guys and I enjoyed the cakes, esp my 2nd and 3rd attempts. Well, the first cake was always the hardest as it was done by trial and error. I had balanced both forces of nature, the Dark Side and a New Hope, and most of all I have learnt from my mistakes and improvised them as I went along. In other words, I have out-smarted my "grand old lady" :-) Yay!!

    I have promised my younger son a RCC this weekend, but it will be for us to see and for you to know ;-)

    Cheers and have a great long weekend if your hubs is bridging Friday...

    1. My pleasure, Nasifriet. =)
      If not for your 1-2-3 valiant attempts, we would not know the trick on how to cook a rice cooker cake successfully in a "grand old lady", haha!

  2. Hi Miss B,

    How come Charmaine's rice cooker chiffon cake has a hole in it? Must check out her post now!!! Interesting!


    1. You know when I first saw her cake, I thought she placed a piece of toilet roll in the centre, haha! :)

  3. banana seems like the most favorite recipe for everyone.... ^^ including me....
