Orange Cake (Bake In Rice Cooker) 电饭锅做蛋糕

This orange cake is the similar recipe to my earlier lemon cake. With the micro computer rice cooker around, the orange cake is quick and easy to make. Since I was in baking mood last weekend, I baked two orange cakes to share with my family and friends.

I made some minor modification on my earlier recipe and I observe some improvement this round. Besides the prettier appearance, the cake is fluffy, light and moist. With the little effort, you'll get a healthier version of cake with no margarine and butter.

Orange Cake
Yields for 12 pieces


5 grade C eggs
180gm self raising flour, sifted
1 tsp of baking powder
120gm Castor sugar
50gm sunflower oil
1 orange, finely grated zest
3tbsp orange juice


1. Beat the eggs and Caster sugar under high speed until fluffy. (I beat it for about 15 minutes).

2. Add the orange zest and orange juice. Gently fold in the sifted flour and baking powder with plastic spatula.

3. Pour in the sunflower oil and mix well with spatula.

4. Using spatula, transfer the batter into inner pot of rice cooker. Give the pot a few good shake to remove the air trapped in the batter.

5. Bake the cake using "quick cook" menu.

6. When it's done, leave it cool. Upside turn the pot to leave the cake bottom-up on a big plate.

Hi Little Inbox, do you think I can substitute cane sugar for castor sugar for baking cake??

thenomadGourmand said...

Amazing! Rice cooker??
BUt my rice cooker the old non computerised version i guess aint gonna be usable for this hor? ;(

Anncoo said...

How long its takes to bake in your rice cooker? Is 10 mins enough? Nice cake :)

Little Inbox said...

SimpleGirl, I used fine cane sugar before, it's ok. However, the cake turn out smoother with Castor sugar. That's my experience. Not sure about the theory behind.

thenomadGourmand, it's better to use non-stick rice cooker pot. Otherwise, the cake will stick to the pot.

Anncoo, it takes about 20 minutes or less. I didn't measure the time.

I try once using rice cooker but don't really like the taste. lol

Joanne said...

I would have never thought to bake a cake in a rice cooker. I've heard of making one in the slow cooker, but never the rice cooker. This looks so moist and delicious. I would love a piece!

Little Inbox said...

New Kid, thanks :P

Duckie, non-stick pot can perform better in this case.

Lingzie, yea healthy cake. :)

FoodParadise, oppss may be your ingredients ratio is not correct, or the flavor matter? There was once I bake an egg cake in the rice cooker, but it turned out as hard as rock, LOL!

Joanne, yes, it's fluffy and moist. I love it too!

daphne said...

Oh wow! Is it like a steamed cake? I love that it only uses 50grams of sunflower oil and no butter!

Little Inbox said...

mimid3vils, I learn it from the net too.

daphne, not really like steamed cake, the texture is like baked cake.

A rice cooker?? that's interesting.

Little Inbox said...

The Food Hunter, yes, sounds unbelievable?

noobcook said...

Your rice cooker very high tech to bake cake ^_^

Little Inbox said...

noobcook, micro computer rice cooker becomes quite common now. :)

mermaid said...

is this the only cake can bake in rice cooker? My daughter loves chocolate n coffee cake.
Would really love if you can share more recipe that can bake in rice cooker.

Little Inbox said...

Mermaid, I would say coffee and chocolate will work fine in a rice cooker too. Separate the egg yolk and egg white like chiffon cake to get a smoother texture.

Vera Peter @ Princess Becky said...

Hi little Inbox, if I wanna steam the cake, how long it will take? thanks:)

Grace F said...

Hi, it's kind of cake I like to eat as its healthier. I am going to get a new rice cake (bigger). So I can use my old small Panasonic rice cooker to cook cakes. Thanks for your receip, it' looks very yumy. Wish I could taste as well.
