It is the Daddy’s birthday today. Every year since the arrival of the elder brother Ethan, the Daddy refused to let us buy him a cake as his birthday is just a week away from Ethan’s hence he will always insist for us to buy a cake for Ethan instead and not waste on him. This year since the boys can already bake, we decided to surprise him with the boys’ own bake. It was amazing how […]
My family loves cheesecake a lot but we’ve never baked one ourselves as we don’t have an oven. We came across a rice cooker cheesecake recipe online recently and got excited to try it out. The only problem is, the recipe from Dingo Food is not in English and when I clicked on the translated version, it requires the use of FOUR DOGS! I reckon it will be such a hassle to catch 4 dogs. Moreover, […]
I’ve shared this super simple yet extremely delicious moist chocolate cake recipe back in 2015. This cake requires no mixer and bakes perfectly in the rice cooker. During the recent school holidays, I got the boys to bake this favourite cake of theirs themselves. Ingredients: 180g Salted Butter 180g Brown Sugar 100ml Full Cream Milk (I used Fresh Milk instead) 2 Eggs (lightly beaten) 100g Self-Raising Flour 1/2 tsp Baking Soda 50g Cocoa Powder Method: 1) Add […]
We’ll be baking moist orange cake today. I browsed the web and found a recipe on allrecipes.co.uk that I believe will work so I tested it out. I tweaked it to suit my preference and this is the result: Super moist and delicious orange cake. This is my tweaked recipe: 110g butter 130g sugar (the original calls for 150g) Grated orange zest from ONE orange (the original says 2 tablespoons) 2 egg yolks 2 egg […]
I love baking cakes using my rice cooker. I find that the cakes retain their moisture better compared to oven-baked ones. After all the successful cakes I baked using my rice cooker, I thought it will be a breeze baking a moist banana cake but I was wrong. It took me 4 attempts before I can finally publish this post as I don’t want to be one of those who published false recipes and ending […]
The fasting season is near and that means having buah kurma (dates) in abundance everywhere. I love eating kurma. The moment I see shops starting to sell kurma, I’ll go grab several boxes home but Ethan doesn’t fancy kurma. In fact, he won’t even touch it. Well, that boy doesn’t even eat bananas but loves eating my banana cake so that got me wondered if he’ll eat kurma cake. Again, it took two bakings to […]
A friend said I am baking with a vengeance. Heh. It’s just that I am so excited to experiment with so many recipes out there to see which works and which doesn’t. This is my second attempt baking Moist Chocolate Cake. My first attempt failed miserably so I did not blog about it. It came out looking like a piece of belacan. It was so dense there wasn’t any space to breath in there. I […]
We are getting very comfortable baking using our rice cooker these days with the many successful cakes that we’ve baked. Today, I’m going to let my little helper do most of the work because it is that easy :) If little Ayden can do it, so can YOU! Watch this video: We’ll be baking this beautiful and equally delicious Marble Butter Cake. It is actually similar to the butter cake we baked previously but nicer looking […]
I baked butter cake using my rice cooker last week. This is by far the most successful cake baked using my rice cooker. The texture of the cake is exactly like those oven baked cakes except the top layer is pale and not brown. The amount of ingredients used makes it just perfect when it comes to the thickness of the cake. This is also the first cake (baked using my rice cooker) that requires […]
My first rice cooker cake is steamed banana chocolate cake. Then I experimented with a different recipe making moist chocolate cake that turned out to be a total flop as it was too dense. Today, using the steamed banana chocolate cake recipe, I tried making sweet corn cake. Was super nervous to open the rice cooker when it was done as I was afraid it will be another failure but surprise, surprise, this is highly successful! […]

Darling bought me a new toy. The rice cooker that I have been using to cook porridge for Ethan and now Ayden has finally died so he bought me a new one. It comes with a CAKE function so today I excitedly tried to bake a cake using it as my oven at home is rendered unusable for ages. For a mother of two, you’d think that I would have everything in my kitchen but […]
