A few days ago, I saw a tiktok video that caught my interest. That video is about baking chiffon cake using a rice cooker. The procedures given in that video were easy so I thought why not make my version of it but the problem is the ingredients to be used.
In the video, the ingredients that she used were six eggs, cake premix flour, oil, and half a bowl of water but what is available here in our house was just the plain flour, baking powder, oil, and of course water.😅
As I was reading the comments, the creator said that plain flour is not advisable but still I tried using it because I want it to be my kid's snack for this morning. I have flour stock at home because I am using it when experimenting with vegetable dishes for my kids. Since I am not using it this time because we don't have vegetables at home, so I said why not make use of it in another way.
I thought the flour would only be my problem but there's still more. No baking soda and no white sugar available only brown sugar. So I searched online if it was okay if white sugar will be replaced with brown sugar and I read an article that it's okay but the wet mixture must be lessened. So I followed it.
I prepare six eggs in a bowl just like what I saw in the video and add the dry mixtures after. When it is all totally mix, I added a little amount of oil just the same as what I saw in the video. When I am done doing all the procedures, I prepare the rice cooker and apply oil to the bottom and on the side so the mixture that I will put will not stick to the rice cooker.
After pouring the mixture, I covered the rice cooker with foil. Good thing, we still have foil left when we grilled fish the last time. After covering the top with foil, I press the cook button for five minutes then let it set to warm for 15 minutes. While waiting for it to be finished baking, I have so many what-ifs on my mind. What if it didn't turn out well or if the result will be worst? I was thinking that one since the ingredients that I used is not really for baking cakes but I just gamble for it since I wanted to know what's the result after.
After 20 minutes of waiting, this is it. The result will be revealed. So how was it? Is it okay or it's the worst first bake ever?
Here's the result. The taste is satisfying. It's the opposite of what I thought. Since it's my first time, I could say that it's a success. The taste is like eggnog (a Filipino tasty snack and my favorite snack when I was young). It's fluffy and soft too but not really as soft as the chiffon cake that was bought in the bakeries. I sliced it into eight pieces and only two are left right now and that's for my partner.
To those who haven't seen the eggnog snack here's a photo of it.
So that's my experience with my first time baking. I hope everyone has a happy and blessed day.
