This enormous pancake is made in a rice cooker! No need to stand over the stove and flip individual pancakes. Instead, just pour in the batter and let the rice cooker do the work.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups low fat milk

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until completely blended. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until only small lumps remain.

  2. Grease the interior of your rice cooker pot. I used my 10-cup rice cooker with only a cook/warm function. Pour in the batter. If you have a very small ricer cooker, make sure your batter does not reach past the halfway point since the pancake will rise when cooking. Close your rice cooker. 

  3. If your rice cooker has a timer function, set it to cook for 45 minutes. If it doesn't, set a separate timer for yourself and then press cook. If your rice cooker only has a cook/warm function, the rice cooker will likely go from cook to warm before the 45 minutes is up (mine did it after 10-15 minutes). You can try pressing cook again, but my rice cooker wouldn't let me. I left it on warm and it continued to cook, finishing at 45 minutes. Your cooking time may vary slightly depending on your rice cooker (size, power, etc). You can check on it periodically.

  4. When it is done, the cake will have slightly pulled away from the edges of the pan. The surface may look slightly wet, but it is likely from condensation. When you touch the cake, it should feel firm and bounce back. A toothpick inserted should come out clean. Let cake cool a few minutes. Then invert the cake onto a plate (the cake should slide out easily), and the surface of the cake should be brown.
