I think its time for a new rice cooker recipe!
For those of you new to my blog, i am a firm believer that nothing in the kitchen should be one purpose only. And the rice cooker is one of them! Why should i use it for just cooking rice? [Btw i really like rice so a rice cooker is indispensable in my kitchen XD] In Japan , cooking with your rice cooker isnt a new thing. There are hundreds of books in the bookstores here all about it. So i guess i am not really doing anything fancy or new but hey it might be new to some of you and i always aim to share my little bit of Japan with you ^^
7. Once the rice cooker rings [as if ur rice is cooked], your bread should be done!
You NEED to try this recipe. Its only 6 ingredients and you probably have them in your pantry to start with. I would say the bread is savoury but with a sweet tinge. Kinda like cornbread! I keep telling myself to try this with jam and cream as it has the texture of the perfect scone. But i keep eating them right away once i pull it out of the rice cooker XD The gooey mochi and melty cheese…can we say YUM!??!? TRY IT!!
– if the bread isnt completely cooked when your rice cooker rings. You can either restart your rice cooker [ie press cook again] or just put it in your microwave. 1 – 2 mins should do the trick.
– to check if its cooked, just stick a skewer or toothpick in it and if it comes out clean, its done ^^ [unless its stuck on the cheese or mochi haha]
– for those who cant find hot cake mix in their supermarket, i assume its the same as pancake mix [ingredients seem abt the same] I looked online and it seems several places throughout the world sell Morinaga Hot Cake Mix so if you think you prefer to use the japanese hot cake mix, you can try buying it online. I used a generic brand of hot cake mix from 7-11
