Step 1: Ingredients

-2 apples sliced in 8 pieces each
- 3 tbsp white sugar for caramelizing
- 2 tbsp butter or 1.5 tbsp ghee

for cake batter
- 2 eggs
- 70 grams maida.( all purpose flour)
- 50 grams sugar ( its better to use less)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3tbsp butter

Step 2: Peel Apples

and cut into 8 wedges each

Step 3: Process

In a non-stick pan, heat gently 2 tbsp butter, add the apples, toss them around a little and let cook at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add 3 tbsp cane sugar, mix delicately and let cook until caramelised

Step 4: Adjusting

Grease the ricecooker’s bowl with a drop of oil and pour the apples and all the remaining caramel into the bowl. Arrange the apples to cover the bottom of the bowl.

Step 5: Cooking

Then put together 70g (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour with 50g (1/4) cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, a pinch of salt, 3 tbsp melted butter and two eggs, mix well and pour this batter over the apples, covering them completely. Switch on the cake and cook.

Step 6: Unmolding

after cooking the cake, allow it to cool in the mold for 20 minutes, and unmold delicately on a serving plate.

Step 7: Remarks

1.I did put the lid on.. but not sure if it works without lid or not.

2.The batter is pretty less as compared to the apples.. it only makes a thin base. ( i might try doubling the batter next time)

3.And for us the sugar was alot.

    Roger Ebert has a cook book out that uses ONLY a rice cooker.... it is wonderful,

    The Pot and How to Use It: The Mystery and Romance of the Rice Cooker

    I have used many of his recipes and they work..... most often the first time !


    I have a rice cooker. I want to try this recipe but you didn't say if you put the lid on or not so I am thinking no. Is that right?

    That's so cool that you can do that in a rice cooker! More and more it seems as if ovens are over rated as long as you have a rice cooker or a slow cooker. Your cake also looks delicious with the shiny apples on top! Thanks for sharing!
