Amazake Rice Cake

If you have a rice cooker at home, this multi-functional gadget will help you cook not only rice, but also steam root vegetables (sweet potato, yam, etc), make quick ferments such as Amazake (fermented rice beverage), or make bread and cake! It's as useful as any instant pot!

I made this rice cake this morning while I took a shower. It's that easy! All you need to do is to assemble the ingredients. You can also freeze the leftover for busy mornings. Just grab and reheat it at office!

Serving: 6  Prep time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

200 g Rice flour

3 tsp Baking powder

1 Egg *

2 Tbsp Coconut oil

150 g Amazake **

200 ml Soy milk (or other milk)

1/4 tsp Salt

Topping

Strawberries

Miso caramel sauce ***

Instructions: 

  1. Mix all the wet ingredients together. If coconut oil is solid, melt it first.
  2. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into the rice cooker and set start. 
  4. Cut the cake and serve it with your choice of toppings. 

* If you want to make it vegan, you can make flax egg with 1 Tbsp flaxseeds (grounded) and 3 Tbsp water, mix it and let it sit for 5 minutes until the mixture becomes gelatinous. 

** In this recipe, I used kabocha Amazake and oat Amazake. Any type works, but concentrated one gives more sweetness. 

*** Other options include maple syrup, honey, apple sauce, and nut butter.
