Tea Chiffon Cake Steamed in Rice Cooker


Rice cookers come very handy when you want to make lighter cakes you can either eat hot, lukewarm or cold!

here is a simple recipe for a chiffon cake!


Eggs: 2
Egg whites: 2
White sugar: 40 g
Salad oil: 2 x tablespoons
Baking powder: 4 g
Flour: 4 x tablespoons
Black tea teabag: 1 (Darjheeling, Earl Grey or whatever your favorite tea!)


Make 2 tablespoons of tea with teabag. The more concentrated, the better.
Warm up inside microwave oven.


Beat the egg whites with half of the sugar. Add the sugar in two steps.


Beat until you obtain solid meringue/beaten egg whites and sugar.


In another bowl the two whole eggs and the rest of the sugar.
Beat until the mixture becomes whitish.
Add the warm tea and salad oil and mix again.


Mix in 1/4 (one quarter) of the meringue/beaten whites) with a spatula.


Add flour and baking powder.
Mix gently with the spatula.


Having obtained a smooth mixture with no flour curd bits, add rest of meringue/beaten egg whites and mix quickly with the spatula.


Pour the mixture into the rice cooker basin. regulate the temperature a bit down and cook once.


Check if it is cooked to your liking with a wooden stick.
Actually it’s best to cook it twice!


Once cooled down serve it with a whipped cream of your choice.


Bear in mind that it tends to crumble easily so cut it with a very sharp knife!
