Julia Child was once quoted as saying “A party without cake is just a meeting,” and I tend to agree. Birthdays, weddings and everything in between don’t seem to culminate without it. Recipes come in tons of flavors with countless tips, tricks, secrets and suggestions that have turned cake making into an art form. Now, I’m not fancy enough to bust out a fondant coating any time soon, but I do love cake enough to give it a go in a rice cooker once I heard it was possible. As with most things I put into my Aroma Rice Cooker, it couldn’t have been easier. And the results were surprisingly decadent and delicious. The rice cooker offers an extremely moist and slightly denser version of the dessert staple that turns out in a rounded shape perfect to stack or decorate as you please.
1 box cake mix, any flavor

When the cooking cycle ends check the cake for doneness. Set to White Rice again if not cooked through.
