Castella Cake in Rice Cooker

It has been a long time since I last use my "big" rice cooker. Since I have some time, i took it out to bake cake. The texture is abit too dry for my liking, i think with this rice cooker setting, it could be done by 35mins instead of 45mins.


  • 3 eggs
  • 90g sugar
  • 45g cake flour
  • 45g bread flour
  • 2tbsp milk
  • 1tbsp honey

  1. Warm the milk then stir in honey till all dissolved.
  2. Beat eggs with sugar till fluffy.
  3. Add in honey mixture.
  4. Place bowl over a pot of warm water, beat the batter till ribbon stage.
  5. Sift in flour, fold till combined.
  6. Grease the inner pot of rice cooker, then pour in batter.
  7. Set to "Cake" setting and set 45mins.
  8. Once done, remove from rice cooker, let cool until warm, then store in airtight container to keep it moisture.

Banana Yogurt Cake

Inspired and tempted by my baking lover. Since I have some bananas at home, i thought this could replace the blueberries, indeed, it's great. I added some choc chips too. But it's bit sweet for my liking. Should reduce sugar if i were to use flavoured yogurt.

  • 93 self raising flour
  • 133g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 122g banana yoghurt
  • 83g butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence
  • Sliced banana
  1. Sift both flour and set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar till pale and creamy.
  3. Add eggs,one at a time.
  4. Add vanilla essence. 
  5. Add flour and yoghurt alternately. 
  6. Pour into cake pan. 
  7. Top with banana. 
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 50 mins. 
  9. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool on rack.
  10. Serve when cooled.
