Can I bake a cake using a rice cooker?

Definitely yes !

The best thing about owning a rice cooker, regardless of brand, is you could bake cookies, cakes, cook soups, instant noodles and even stir fries。


5 Reasons To Use a Rice Cooker to Bake a Cake

  1. Cheapest electrical appliance compare to ovens
  2. More energy efficient compare to stove tops
  3. Need not use cake tin because the rice cooker pot itself is the cake tin. Just a simple butter spray or glazing will do.
  4. Easy to pop out the cake after baking
  5. You don't have to keep an eye on the cake being burnt because the temperature and timing are automated.

How do I bake Marble Cake with Almonds?

Most marble cakes use unsweetened cocoa powder but I decided to use malted cocoa powder ( beverage ) known as MILO which is very popular among Malaysians and Singaporeans. MILO taste sweet on its own, you don’t have to add any sweeteners or sugar into it.

Now, the interesting part is how to create the marble patterns of the Marble Cake with these simple steps.

  1. Divide the batter into two bowls of equal portion.
  2. Add 2 tsp of cocoa powder into one bowl and mix it well until the batter turns chocolate brown in color.
  3. Leave the other batter untouched.
  4. If you prefer more chocolate batter, divide the vanilla batter 1/3 and 2/3 for the chocolate flavor

Fun Facts

The first birthday cakes came from Germany. Back then, the Germans made birthday cakes that were alike breads without any fancy icing or fondue. These cakes were celebrated for children only.

Cream the butter mixture by hand

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker

How to cream the butter with sugar by hand

  1. Cream butter and sugar until creamy.
  2. It doesn't have to be fluffy and light. I use a stainless steel fork and beat for 5 minutes sugar,
  3. Just make sure the sugar is dissolve.
  4. I dipped my finger into the batter and feel between my fingers.
  5. If you can feel bits of beat again..



Sieve the dry ingredients

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker

How to sieve the dry ingredients

  1. Measure all the dry ingredients separately.
  2. Pour in all the dry ingredients (baking powder and milk powder) into the sieve.
  3. Start shaking the sieve or use your hand to light hit the side of the sieve
  4. Remove the harden bits of dry ingredients.

I prefer the old fashion flour sifter

How to make the Chocolate batter

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker
  1. After you had incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, you need to divide the batter into halves.
  2. Get two medium bowls.
  3. Divide the batter into half, equally.
  4. Add in cocoa powder or MILO into of the bowls.
  5. Mix well until the batter becomes chocolate batter. (Super Yummy!)


How to pour the cake batter

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker
  1. Now, you really need to lightly grease the rice cooker pot. Otherwise your Marble Cake with stuck onto the pot and wouldn't fall off easily.
  2. Just a dab of butter is sufficient to grease the pot.
  3. Make sure the butter is light and soft so that you can grease the base and the side of the pot.
  4. Just grease 1/3 of the rice cooker pot will do.
  5. Pour in some vanilla batter into the pot. at least cover up the base.
  6. Then pour in a little chocolate batter, around 2 tbsp will do.
  7. Even out the chocolate batter with the back of a spoon.
  8. Then pour again the vanilla batter and then the chocolate batter until you had finish them.



Create the pattern

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker
  1. You don't have to be an artistic pattern maker.
  2. Use a toothpick and dip it into the batter right to the bottom of the bse of the rice cooker.
  3. Create whatever pattern your desire.
  4. I did this: draw continuous "S" sign from top to bottom and draw a straight line.
  5. Makes a $$ sign but turn out a tree instead!



Don't forget the almonds!

how-to-bake-marble-cake-with-a-rice-cooker
  1. You can either use raw slices of almonds or roast them in the oven for 10 minutes.
  2. I prefer to use raw almonds.
  3. Sprinkle the almonds over the surface of the Marble Cake.

How to bake Almond Marble Cake

This is my Panasonic Rice Cooker. The best thing about rice cooker is you can bake cakes and muffins besides the usual boring rice.

I prefer to use Rice Cooker because I don't have to keep checking on the cake temperature or the status of the cake.

  1. Make sure the Marble Cake batter is even, not slanting.
  2. Put the pot into the rice cooker, cover the lid.
  3. Press Cook Rice. Panasonic has two function; Quick Cook-30 minutes or WHite Rice - 50 minutes.
  4. I chose White Rice - 50 minutes to ensure the cake is cooked well. I am in no hurry to eat.
  5. Press START, and I left the Rice Cooker to do the job while I attend to washing all the dirty bowls.

How to remove the cake

Flip the rice cooker pot upside down

First Step

Removing the Marble cake from the rice cooker is easy but you need to be careful because the pot is really HOT!

  1. Use a pair of mittens of towel to protect your hands.
  2. Turn off the rice cooker once it started to beep ( means ready ).
  3. Open up the lid, lift up the rice cooker pot.
  4. Prepare 2 big flat plates.
  5. One plate to cover the mouth of the pot ( where you can see the cake )
  6. Hold firm on both sides of the edges of the plates and the pot together.
  7. Now take a deep breath, turn the whole pot upside down. Yes, UPSIDE DOWN.
  8. The plate should land on the table while the pot is upside down as picture shown.
  • Make sure the pot is in the middle of the plate so that the cake doesn't falls off.
  • Slowly, lift up the pot.
  • You can see the "backside" of the Marble Cake.


Last Step

  • Use the other plate to cover the back of the cake and turn it over again.
  • This time, the front cake is facing up.
  • Lift up the first plate and this is how my Marble Cake with Almonds appears.
  • Remember to leave it to cool before cutting the cake.

Enjoy baking with your Rice Cooker !!

Let's Eat the Marble Cake with Almonds!

Thanks very much. I am reading your hubs now

Almonds are one of my favorite choices of nuts.

Lovely looking cake and I believe it is as delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

thanks, do try your rice cooker, don't have to worry much.

Thanks for reading my hub, reading yours now.

Nyesha Pagnou MPH from USA on May 29, 2018:

I enjoy marble cake and making it in a rice cooker is an interesting idea. Adding almonds seems good too. Thanks for this recipe.

thanks very much, you should try, no worries about getting burnt cakes

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on February 07, 2017:

I have never used the rice cooker for baking but another friend told me about it, too. Time to try. Your cake looks really good.

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on March 20, 2016:

https://hubpages.com/@peggy-w you can buy smaller type of rice cooker. You must be very clever at cooking rice over the gas stove. I always burn the rice.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 18, 2016:

Hi peachpurple,

Just noticed your comment back to me asking whether we eat rice. Yes, my husband and I love eating rice but with just the two of us we use regular pots on the stove when making it. The rice cooker we had was large and would make much too much for just the two of us. Storing it for the few times a year we might use it was just not worth giving up the space. We did the same with a large wok we had. We love to stir fry foods but use our regular pans to do it and they work just fine.

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on September 30, 2015:

Indeed au fair, you should try, fast and convenient

C E Clark from North Texas on September 29, 2015:

Baking this cake in a rice cooker sounds interesting and the cake looks delicious!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on August 26, 2015:

an oven definitely works well but I have never tried on crock pot. Maybe it pot, should be ok because I just went google crock pot, yes there are crock pot baking cakes

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on August 26, 2015:

I no longer have a rice cooker but I wonder...would this work in a crock pot?

This sounds so good and I would love to give it a try.

Also could it be baked in a conventional oven rather than the cooker?

Thanks for sharing.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on August 16, 2015:

Thanks Suzanne, you should try with almonds or maybe cashew nuts

Suzanne Day from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on August 15, 2015:

I've never tried this recipe, but I think it looks interesting and the almonds are sure to add a lovely flavour and texture!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on July 15, 2015:

Thanks, i noticed that other marble cakes ingredients are different too

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on July 15, 2015:

This looks really different then most marble cakes and very interesting and worth trying. Voted up and awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings to you.

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on July 05, 2015:

thanks thumbi7, anamika

it is delicious, I bake this cake on any day, not just special occasion

Anamika S Jain from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on July 04, 2015:

Wow! That looks yummy. Got to try it

JR Krishna from India on July 04, 2015:

This recipe is very tempting. The cake looks very soft.

Have a nice day..

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on June 30, 2015:

thanks timetraveller, oh yes, an hour is sufficient to bake the cake

Sondra Rochelle from USA on June 30, 2015:

I never knew you could bake a cake in a rice maker! Mine does not have a timer, but usually my rice cooks in about an hour, so probably it would be OK for cake baking. Interesting hub!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on May 28, 2015:

thanks dolores, it doesn't matter whether it has a timer or not. As long the rice cooker pops, that means, your cake is baked

Dolores Monet from East Coast, United States on May 27, 2015:

Well this is a new one on me. I never heard of making a cake in a rice cooker. What a wonderful idea! I was all gung-ho for it but I see that your rice cooker has a timer. Mine, you just push the button down and the rice cooks then it pops up. It must be the cheaper version. But this is still very cool!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on May 02, 2015:

thanks jeannie, you can try out with your rice cooker. Baking soda and baking powder are different, gives upside down results

Thanks rochelle, Mine is not the latest type, you still cake bake your cake with the one function. Does it takes 30-50 min to cook rice? If yes, then you can bake your cake

thanks besarien, yes do try, it definitely didn't dry out the cake, moist

Rochelle Frank from California Gold Country on May 01, 2015:

This looks great. I have only a small rice cooker with one setting, and only use it for rice. Your cooker looks much more sophisticated. I can see that this might be a good thing to use when the weather is hot and ou don't want to heat up the whole kitchen with a regular oven.

Jeannie Marie from Baltimore, MD on April 21, 2015:

I have not used a rice cooker to bake a cake before, but maybe I will give it a try. I tried to use a crock pot to make a cobbler once and failed miserably (mixed up baking powder for baking soda), so I have not tried to do that again. Maybe it is time to open my mind again to finding new ways to cook dessert. ;-)

Besarien from South Florida on April 13, 2015:

I had never thought of using a rice cooker to bake a cake! What an amazing idea. I imagine it wouldn't dry out the cake s much as a hot oven. Will definitely try this one of these days!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on April 12, 2015:

thanks larry, I am sure you will love it. I had been baking cakes with my rice cooker ever since

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on April 11, 2015:

This looks like something I'd enjoy. I'll have to give it a try.

Great read.

Tolovaj Publishing House from Ljubljana on March 26, 2015:

I have never heard about making cakes in rice cooker, but it looks interesting. An addition of the almonds is another thing to explore. Thanks for the recipe and all the tips!

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on March 26, 2015:

You don't cook rice everyday? How often do you use rice cooker then? Very curious.

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on March 26, 2015:

thanks, I happened to watch Youtube, a fella bake his chocolate cake with rice cooker and I followed. Now, I don't use oven for baking.

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on March 25, 2015:

Great recipes Peach. I would love to give it a go, when I get a rice cooker at some point. Very useful and awesome at the same time. Voted up!

Marlene Bertrand from USA on March 22, 2015:

And until now I thought the only thing a rice cooker was good for was cooking rice. Silly me! I like your clever idea of baking a cake in the rice cooker. Your instructions are very easy and delightful to follow.

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on March 20, 2015:

I love marble cake but have never made one myself. Your recipe looks really simple and delicious. Your instructions and pictures are very good and helpful. Voting up and useful.

I also have made cakes in my croc pot, which can also be used to cook rice. I thought about buying a rice cooker, and I might one day when I have a larger kitchen since I already have too many appliances. However, for people who are just starting out with small kitchens, a rice cooker would be a wonderful first appliance.

GrimRascal from Overlord's Castle on January 26, 2015:

For some reason, it doesn't look very appealing to me. Well, that's based on the looks. I haven't tasted it so that may or may not stand. It certainly sounds good though based on the ingredients and how it was made. :D

This looks delicious - I also had no idea a rice cooker could be used for making cakes. Thank you.

thanks, i do noticed that western people do not use rice cooker that often, many kept it away or gave it away. Don't you eat rice?

Treasures By Brenda from Canada on January 20, 2015:

Very creative! I'd never have thought you could use a rice cooker to bake a cake.

Thelma Alberts from Germany on January 20, 2015:

I have baked my banana sponge cake in the rice cooker last year and it was delicious. I am sure it will be a success too baking marble cake in the rice cooker. I have to try it next time I bake. I have baked marble cake in the oven though it was ages ago. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe. Well done!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on January 20, 2015:

We used to have a rice cooker but with only two of us in the house we did not use it often enough to warrant keeping it and storing it so we gave it away. I am sure this good sounding cake could be made in the oven. Thanks for your detailed description and your accompanying photos. Many up votes and will share.

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on January 19, 2015:

We've had Milo here in Australia ever since I can remember, although I think that Ovaltine might have been the most popular when we were young. I was pleasantly surprised to find Milo in supermarkets when we lived in Asia!

Casey White from Tennessee on January 18, 2015:

That's really interesting. I recently learned you could use a crock pot to make desserts so learning you can use a rice cooker as well kind of blows my mind. The pictures are really pretty. I'm impressed. Now I feel bad for stuffing my old rice cooker into the depths of my cabinets and not being creative with it instead.
