rice-cooker gluten-free and dairy-free pineapple-ginger cake


I honestly don't remember where I originally got this recipe, but I've changed it quite a bit so maybe it won't matter too much that I don't credit the source (sorry, whoever you are!). It's basically a cake made in a rice cooker from a pancake mix, but it's super-duper easy and has minimal dirty dishes to take care of afterward. One of the boys wanted it on his Vaccine Day, so have it he did. 

You'll need:
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g gluten-free pancake mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons oil, plus extra for greasing the rice-cooker insert
  • 100 g soy milk, or milk of your choice
  • 1/2 large can (400 g or so can) pineapple, cut into small bites
  • soy cream, a teaspoon of sugar, and a splash of vanilla for whipping
Do this:

Grease your rice-cooker insert with oil. In a mixing bowl, beat your eggs, pancake mix, oil, ginger, and milk, then stir in the pineapple by hand. Pour into your rice-cooker insert and press start. No need to choose a fancy setting; your rice cooker is a smart cookie.

Whip your soy cream, teaspoon of sugar, and splash of vanilla to dress your cake. As you can see, we do like a little bit of cake with our whipped cream. 

I shared the photo of the finished cake in a gluten-free group I'm in, and one of the other group members called it "the peaceful delicious moon." Exactly.
