IH Rice Cooker - Orange Cake

A light cake with sweet aroma of orange baked in an induction-heated rice cooker :)

Rice cooker: Philips IH Rice cooker HD3175, 1.5L, inner diameter of the pot is about 21cm at its opening.


Using 55g Omega 3&6 eggs
All ingredients in room temperature

3 eggs, separated
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
100g fine sugar

100g top/cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

50 45g rice bran oil or mild flavour vegetable oil*
15 20g orange juice*
10g golden syrup
4g orange peel, finely chopped

* Reduce the oil quantity and increase the orange juice quantity for a slightly healthier cake. Tried it on 8 Jan 2018 and the cake was equally nice :)


1. Pour rice bran oil, orange juice and golden syrup into a container.

2. Finely chopped  the orange peel and add to the above orange-oil mixture. Set aside.

3. Coat the inner pot of the rice cooker with butter. Set aside.

4. Mix top flour with baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.

5. Beat egg whites in a dry and clean bowl till frothy. Add in the cream of tartar, then gradually add in the fine sugar. Beat at high speed then slowly reduce to low, until the meringue reaches firm peak.

Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time.

6. Sieve and mix in the flour mixture from Step 4. 

Pour in the orange-oil mixture and mix well.

Use a spatula to mix and to ensure no liquid sink below the batter.

7. Pour the batter into the prepared inner pot.
Bang lightly to level the batter, and to get rid of trapped bubbles.

8. Return the inner pot to the rice cooker.

Select "Cake" function from the menu and press "Start". The process will take 45 minutes to complete.

When the process ends, 4 "beeps" can be heard.

9. Transfer the pot to a steamer rack to cool down for a few minutes, or till the pot is not too hot to be handled.

Place a small piece of parchment paper over the cake.

Rest the given steamer rack over the cake.

Cover the pot with a plate or chopping board.

Finally, invert the whole set-up. Remove the inner pot, and let the cake cool down over the steamer rack.

10. After the cake has cooled down, cut and enjoy 😋
