Avez-vous déjà essayé de faire un pancake dans un cuiseur à riz ? C’est possible et certainement plus plus sain que la version à l’huile !

Voici une recette simple qui pourra satisfaire les petits et les grands !

INGREDIENTS: Pour un gros pancake, n’oubliez par contre de le partager !

Mélange à pancake : Un pack

  • 1 oeuf
  • 100ml de lait
  • 40g de carottes finement découpées
  • 40g de citrouille (bouillie ou cuite vapeur, refroidie et découpée finement)
  • 40g d’épinards (bouillis, bien égouttés et finement découpés


Préparez tout dans des récipients séparés, mettez la mixture à pancake dans le cuiseurà riz. Découpez le carottes finement.

Vous pouvez passer la citrouille au four microondes si vous n’avez pas le temps ni l’envie de la bouillir. Quand elle est refroidie découpez la.

Pour les épinards il faut les bouillir légèrement, faites-les bien égoutter pour qu’il ne renferment pas trop d’eau.

Cassez l’œuf et préparez le lait !

Versez tout dans le pot de la machine

Mélangez soigneusement, goûtez et épicez en conséquence selon votre goût

Réglez le timing du cuiseur si nécessaire et appuyez sur start.

Quand il est cuit, retirez le rapidement sinon il sera trop dur. Servez le chaud de préférence ou un peu tiède.

Bien entendu le choi des légumes est sans limites si ce n’est celle de votre imagination.

  1. Hi, I need help with the HotcakeMix… It’s the first time I hear about that and I don’t think I can find it in a supermarket…can you list the ingredients? I guess it contains egg, flour, mm…what else? Thank you very much


  2. What is a Hot cake mix? Is it the same as pancake mix which can easily buy from supermarket? (I live in Australia).


  3. My rice cooker is more often filled with something other than rice … I like it’s unattended cooking. I also often use the Slow Cook setting that allows a use like a crock pot on High (Keep Warm setting is like crockpot Low setting). Funny…


  4. It sounds delicious and reminds me I have to buy a new rice cooker (my European brand one is almost dead now…). Can you believe I wanted to bring one from Japan??? I have discovered a French online shop selling good brands of Japanese rice cookers, so I will soon buy it I hope.
    PS I am so sorry I haven’t made it to Shizuoka this time 😦 I definitely will do it next time I go and it will certainly be planned more than two days ahead. This trip was such a crazy, unplanned, last-minute holiday… I haven’t managed to make half of what I wanted.


    1. Dear Sissi!
      Do not worry!
      Sincerely it would have been a pleasure to meet but that is for the next time!
      Do tell me about your trip anyway!
      Best regards,


      1. Dear Robert-Gilles, thank you for the kind answer. I will definitely go back to Japan in the forthcoming year (unless I die before) and I will certainly go to Shizuoka. My gourmet friend from Tokyo is very willing to come with me (she confirms all what you praise in Shizuoka food) but now that I’m no longer afraid to travel alone in Japan, I will come alone if no one wants!
        I will write to you a long email. I have so many things to say… In the meantime I have just posted a short sum up of my trip today. (Photos are awful and very scarce though: I was under too many emotions to think about my camera all the time!).
