Chocolate Cake:

1 pack                                                   MAYA Oven Toaster Chocolate Cake 200gms

1 piece                                                 egg

½ cup                                                    water

3 tablespoon                                      oil

1/4 cup                                                 chocolate chips

Caramel Sauce:

1/3 cup                                                 sugar

1/4 cup                                                 butter

1/2 cup                                                 all-purpose cream

For Chocolate Cake:

  1. Grease the small rice cooker pot and line it with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a clean mixing bowl, mix all ingredients: chocolate cake mix, egg, water, oil, and chocolate chips. Mix well, but don’t over mix.
  3. Pour the chocolate cake mixture to the rice cooker pot and place it on the rice cooker and press cook as if you’re cooking rice.
  4. If you have a regular rice cooker, you might need to press the cook button twice for you to be able to cook the cake, but you must rest the rice cooker to lower the temperature sensor before pressing it again. If you have an advance rice cooker, you can choose the cake selection.
  5. To check if cooked, insert a toothpick and see if it comes out clean. Once the cake is done, turn the pot on over to a cooling rack.
  6. Pour caramel sauce on top. Serve.

See! I told you it’s easy.

For Caramel Sauce:

  1. In a medium size stock pot, melt sugar over low heat with continuous stirring, let it caramelize.
  2. Add butter and let it melt, then add the cream. Continue stirring, until all ingredients are thick and well blended.
  3. Pour the caramel sauce over the chocolate cake and serve.


Control the urge to peek and open the lid of the rice cooker. It will let all of the heat out.
Most rice cookers have a non-stick coating but if your’s does not then you need to give it a spray of cooking oil before you pour in the batter.
I have the simple rice cooker and had to set it to cook twice, which took about 20-25 minutes.
If you really want to turn the dial up on the chocolate flavour then you need to go for this Chocolate pancake recipe. Oh yes.
