Rice Cooker Cake: Kurma Cake
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 get this right. The first turned out too heavy and dense. Today’s bake is fluffy and nice so I’m going to share it with you :)
Rice Cooker Kurma Cake
225g self-raising flour
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
10 kurma/dates (deseed)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Deseed 10 kurma and chop into small pieces. You may remove the skin too if it is hard and dry. Mine is moist so I only partially removed the dry parts.
Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. My boys’ favourite part of baking :)
Break two eggs in a bowl. Add vanilla essence and whisk lightly. Add into the butter and sugar mixture and continue mixing on low speed.
Add the mashed kurma and mix on low speed.
Remove mixer. Add flour and baking soda and fold manually.
Add the remaining milk and fold again.
Grease the rice cooker pot with butter. Pour in the batter and set to CAKE. From this…
To this golden and fluffy kurma cake in 45 minutes.
Open the lid of your rice cooker and let it cool for half a minute. Place the steaming basket and carry the pot out.
Turn the pot upside down to get the cake on the steaming basket. Place a plate on the cake and turn it around again.
Cut and serve with more kurma ^_^
True as I thought, Ethan loves this kurma cake. Okay let me think of other fruits that he doesn’t eat that I can bake into a delicious cake :)
