In my household, Marble Cake never goes out of style, regardless of holidays or festive seasons.

I am not a professional baker nor chef of the household but I love to try different types of cake recipes each time I get hold of any easy cake recipes from my old cookbook or websites.


How do I bake Marble Cake with Almonds?

Most marble cakes use unsweetened cocoa powder but I decided to use malted cocoa powder ( beverage ) known as MILO which is very popular among Malaysians and Singaporeans.

MILO taste sweet on its own, you don’t have to add any sweeteners or sugar into it.

Now, the interesting part is how to create the marble patterns of the Marble Cake with these simple steps.

Divide the batter into two bowls of equal portion.

Add 2 tsp of cocoa powder into one bowl and mix it well until the batter turns chocolate brown in color.

Leave the other batter untouched.

If you prefer more chocolate batter, divide the vanilla batter 1/3 and 2/3 for the chocolate flavor

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 3-4 persons

Ingredients

  • 115g butter, soften
  • 115g castor sugar
  • 115g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs, Grade A
  • 60ml milk
  • some almonds, roasted and crushed
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder, or MILO
  • 1 tbsp milk powder
  • some almonds, for decoration

This pack is 1 pound ( 455 g) which is sufficient for me to use for the whole year!

I love the raw slices of almonds, great for baking cakes, muffins and cookies.

Sometimes, I toast them in the oven, mix them into Fried Rice or salads.

If I need a snack, I drizzle some honey on top on the almonds and toast in the oven for 10 minutes.

Mix these almonds with cakes will turn them into fragrant and flavorful Marble Cake!

Conversion :

115g = 39.3 oz

60ml = 0.12 pint

Instructions:

  1. Cream butter and sugar until creamy.
  2. Add in eggs, one at a time after each beating of the batter.
  3. Add in vanilla essence. Mix well.
  4. Sieve in plain flour together with the baking powder into the butter mixture.
  5. Add in crush almonds and stir well. Pour in the milk liquid and mix again. It should turn out a soft, easy dropping batter.
  6. Divide batter into 2 portion equally.
  7. One bowl is pure vanilla batter while the other bowl, add in 2 tsp of cocoa powder or MILO. Stir well.
  8. Lightly grease the rice cooker pot ( inner pot-the black one ) with a little butter over the base and the side of the pot.
  9. Pour in 1/3 of the vanilla batter into the pot. Even the surface. Pour in 2 tbsp of the chocolate batter. Next, pour in the vanilla batter and then the chocolate batter until you have finish them.
  10. Use a toothpick to make pattern design on the surface of the cake. Sprinkle almonds slices over the cake.
  11. Put the pot back into the rice cooker pot. Press Cook Rice for 50min. When it beeps, it is ready to remove.

Create the butter mixture

Source

I didn't use a cake mixer!

  • Cream butter and sugar until creamy.
  • It doesn't have to be fluffy and light. I use a stainless steel fork and beat for 5 minutes sugar,
  • Just make sure the sugar is dissolve.
  • I dipped my finger into the batter and feel between my fingers.
  • If you can feel bits of beat again..



Sieve the dry ingredients

Source

Some people prefer the handheld jug type sifter but I refer the old fashion type sifter.

I could add in the whole dry ingredients at one shot and start shaking like as if I am washing the gold nuggets.

It really traps the hardened flour and bits from falling into the bowl.

That is how I get fine flour. Love this gadget and cheap too!

I prefer the old fashion flour sifter

Sieving makes me sneeze!

  • In a big mixing bowl, sieve the flour, baking powder and milk powder.
  • You can add in everything into the sifter and start shaking the dry ingredients together into the bowl.
  • I did that all the time. Save time and energy!
  • Try to stay your head away from the sifter if you are allergic to flour ( I am )



How to make the Chocolate batter

Source
  • After you had incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, you need to divide the batter into halves.
  • Get two medium bowls.
  • Divide the batter into half, equally.
  • Add in cocoa powder or MILO into of the bowls.
  • Mix well until the batter becomes chocolate batter. (Super Yummy!)


  • Now, you really need to lightly grease the rice cooker pot. Otherwise your Marble Cake with stuck onto the pot and wouldn't fall off easily.
  • Just a dab of butter is sufficient to grease the pot.
  • Make sure the butter is light and soft so that you can grease the base and the side of the pot.
  • Just grease 1/3 of the rice cooker pot will do.
  • Pour in some vanilla batter into the pot. at least cover up the base.
  • Then pour in a little chocolate batter, around 2 tbsp will do.
  • Even out the chocolate batter with the back of a spoon.
  • Then pour again the vanilla batter and then the chocolate batter until you had finish them.



Create the pattern

Source
  • You don't have to be an artistic pattern maker.
  • Use a toothpick and dip it into the batter right to the bottom of the bse of the rice cooker.
  • Create whatever pattern your desire.
  • I did this: draw continuous "S" sign from top to bottom and draw a straight line.
  • Makes a $$ sign but turn out a tree instead!



Don't forget the almonds!

Source
  • You can either use raw slices of almonds or roast them in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • I prefer to use raw almonds.
  • Sprinkle the almonds over the surface of the Marble Cake.



Start Baking!

Source
  • This is my Panasonic Rice Cooker. The best thing about rice cooker is you can bake cakes and muffins besides the usual boring rice.
  • I prefer to use Rice Cooker because I don't have to keep checking on the cake temperature or the status of the cake.
  • Make sure the Marble Cake batter is even, not slanting.
  • Put the pot into the rice cooker, cover the lid.
  • Press Cook Rice. Panasonic has two function; Quick Cook-30 minutes or WHite Rice - 50 minutes.
  • I chose White Rice - 50 minutes to ensure the cake is cooked well. I am in no hurry to eat.
  • Press START, and I left the Rice Cooker to do the job while I attend to washing all the dirty bowls.


How to remove the cake

Source
Source
  • Removing the Marble cake from the rice cooker is easy but you need to be careful because the pot is really HOT!
  • Use a pair of mittens of towel to protect your hands.
  • Turn off the rice cooker once it started to beep ( means ready ).
  • Open up the lid, lift up the rice cooker pot.
  • Prepare 2 big flat plates.
  • One plate to cover the mouth of the pot ( where you can see the cake )
  • Hold firm on both sides of the edges of the plates and the pot together.
  • Now take a deep breath, turn the whole pot upside down. Yes, UPSIDE DOWN.
  • The plate should land on the table while the pot is upside down as picture shown.
  • Make sure the pot is in the middle of the plate so that the cake doesn't falls off.
  • Slowly, lift up the pot.
  • You can see the "backside" of the Marble Cake.


Let's Eat the Marble Cake with Almonds!

Don't mind the pimples on the surface of the cake, this Marble Cake really taste DELICIOUS !
Don't mind the pimples on the surface of the cake, this Marble Cake really taste DELICIOUS ! | Source
  • Use the other plate to cover the back of the cake and turn it over again.
  • This time, the front cake is facing up.
  • Lift up the first plate and this is how my Marble Cake with Almonds appears.
  • Remember to leave it to cool before cutting the cake.

Enjoy baking with your Rice Cooker !!

It´s been a long time since I´ve baked a marbled cake, and I´ve never done it in a rice cooker. What a clever idea! I like that you use milo as a flavoring instead of cocoa. I´m sure this is delicious!

Thank you for sharing this recipe. It sounds very interesting! The idea of baking the cake in a rice cooker is also interesting. I've seen Milo in my local stores but I've never tried it. I'm buy some soon to see what it tastes like.

That's really interesting. I recently learned you could use a crock pot to make desserts so learning you can use a rice cooker as well kind of blows my mind. The pictures are really pretty.

We used to have a rice cooker but with only two of us in the house we did not use it often enough to warrant keeping it and storing it so we gave it away.

I also have made cakes in my croc pot, which can also be used to cook rice.

However, for people who are just starting out with small kitchens, a rice cooker would be a wonderful first appliance.

I have not used a rice cooker to bake a cake before, but maybe I will give it a try. I tried to use a crock pot to make a cobbler once and failed miserably (mixed up baking powder for baking soda), so I have not tried to do that again. Maybe it is time to open my mind again to finding new ways to cook dessert. ;-)

This looks great. I have only a small rice cooker with one setting, and only use it for rice. Your cooker looks much more sophisticated. I can see that this might be a good thing to use when the weather is hot and ou don't want to heat up the whole kitchen with a regular oven.

peachpurple 22 months ago from Home Sweet Home Author

thanks jeannie, you can try out with your rice cooker. Baking soda and baking powder are different, gives upside down results

Thanks rochelle, Mine is not the latest type, you still cake bake your cake with the one function. Does it takes 30-50 min to cook rice? If yes, then you can bake your cake

thanks besarien, yes do try, it definitely didn't dry out the cake, moist

Well this is a new one on me. I never heard of making a cake in a rice cooker. What a wonderful idea! I was all gung-ho for it but I see that your rice cooker has a timer. Mine, you just push the button down and the rice cooks then it pops up. It must be the cheaper version. But this is still very cool!

Hi peachpurple,

Just noticed your comment back to me asking whether we eat rice. Yes, my husband and I love eating rice but with just the two of us we use regular pots on the stove when making it. The rice cooker we had was large and would make much too much for just the two of us. Storing it for the few times a year we might use it was just not worth giving up the space. We did the same with a large wok we had. We love to stir fry foods but use our regular pans to do it and they work just fine.
