Rice Cooker Cream Cheese Pancake

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles 

I never thought to make a pancake using a rice cooker but now I wish I had known about this much earlier.  Hubby is actually the one who told me about this because he heard about it in passing but couldn't find an actual recipe for it.  We decided to just use our pancake recipe (found below) and he wanted to throw in the cream cheese. He made this one all on his own and I just threw the toppings on top.   

I love how the pancake batter fluffed up nicely in the rice cooker to create a small cake that is acceptable to eat for breakfast!  

I may have went a little overboard with the powdered sugar!

The kids loved how this came out, they knew it was a pancake batter since we told them to pour syrup over it but they enjoyed it so much more because we cut it into cake slices.  We generously dusted confectioner's sugar over it and placed fresh strawberries to top it off.  It enhanced the flavor of the pancake but I would suggest not putting too much sugar into the batter if you're going to be generous with the syrup or are a fan of powdered sugar, like me!

We typically steam veggies while using the rice cooker to actually cook rice but now that I know about about making food like this in the rice cooker, I want to explore other sweet things to create in there!
