Course: Easy
Servings: 2 people


Muffin Mix

  • Flour - 1.5 cups
  • Sugar - ¾ cup
  • Baking powder - 2 teaspoons
  • Salt - ½ teaspoon

Wet Ingredients

  • Eggs - 3
  • Butter - 2 Tablespoons
  • Milk - ⅓ cup


  • Make Muffin Mix: Take out a mixing bowl. And thoroughly mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.
  • Take out another small bowl. Slice off a piece of butter. Melt in microwave for 1 minute.
  • Crack 3 eggs into a separate large bowl. Whisk eggs well. Pour half of the melted butter in. Mix into the eggs.
  • Take out a strainer and place over the egg mixture. Pour flour into the strainer. Gently tap on the strainer and sift the flour into the egg mixture. 
  • Finally, pour milk into the mixture. 
  • Thoroughly mix and blend all of the ingredients together.  The batter should be slightly runny and goopy.
  • Take out your rice cooker bowl. Brush the remaining melted butter into the bowl. Make sure to coat the sides so the cake don't stick. 
  • Pour batter into rice cooker bowl. Place bowl into rice cooker. Set it to steam (찜) mode and let it cook for 40 minutes. 
  • Once 40 minutes is up, use a toothpick and poke the middle to see if the cake has cooked all the way through. If is slightly wet, just let it sit in the cooker for 5-10 more minutes.
  • Enjoy with a cup of milk! 


  • Make sure to use baking powder - not baking soda!
  • Poke cake with a toothpick to see if middle is fully cooked through - let it sit in the cooker for 5-10 minutes longer if slightly wet. 
  • Feel free to add chocolate, fruits and other ingredients into the batter.
