Ugh. It is so hot lately, you guys. I’ve been trying to avoid using my oven while it’s hot out, but my dessert craving was strong one day. So I made a cake in my rice cooker.
I have a very basic rice cooker – this Aroma little red rice cooker that I picked up a few years ago. It has 2 functions. Warm and Cook.
Because of these two settings, I had to rig it up a bit and put a little bit of paper to keep it on “cook” to keep it hot enough to cook through the cake. This resulted in a bit of a burned cake bottom, but I sliced it off and left it like that.
I made this with almond meal/flour. Just whip 2-3 egg whites with some sugar until fluffy, add in some flour of your choice, spices, and baking soda. Blop in, and you’re good to go. Basically
I made this cake with almond meal/flour, so it was pretty dense, but stayed very moist. Albany John liked it. I think I only used about 2/3 of a cup of sugar, so it wasn’t too sweet.
