Preparation 15 minutes
Cooking 60 minutes
Ingredients below are for a 5.5-cup cooker.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons loose English breakfast tea leaves or other black tea leaves
- 110ml milk or unsweetened oat milk
- 2 large eggs
- 80g granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
- Mix the flour, baking powder and 3 tablespoons sugar in a bowl and set aside.
- Place the tea leaves and milk in a bowl and microwave for 50 seconds. Take the tea out of the microwave and let cool to room temperature.
- Divide the yolk from the egg white and keep them in two separate bowls.
- Put the egg yolks and 40g of sugar in a bowl and using a hand mixer, mix for 3 minutes on medium speed, or until the mixture turns a light yellow.
- Add the tea leaves and milk mixture, flour mixture, and oil, and mix for 1 minute. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, add the egg whites and using a hand mixer, mix on medium high speed until the egg whites turn into a foam. Slowly add the remaining 40g sugar and keep on mixing until the meringue is solid enough to form peaks.
- Add the meringue to the dough mixture and fold it – do not stir – a few times until it’s evenly mixed.
- Spray the rice cooker inner pot with cooking spray and pour the cake mixture in.
- Either choose the [Cake] mode or [Slow Cook] mode. For Slow Cook mode, set the timer for 60 minutes. Close the lid and press start.
- Flip the cake onto a plate and serve.
