Rice Cooker Berry Pancake

Sometimes I feel, as a food blogger, that I’m supposed to have certain standards about how I make my food and what ingredients I use.  Sometimes I feel that way, but then I think to myself, screw it this giant pancake in the rice cooker thing is just too nifty to pass up.  Yes, nifty.  Not having to stand in front of the stove for patiently waiting for pancakes to cook perfectly is pretty nifty.  Being able to cook “pancakes” with the same bowl you mix them in is also quite nifty.

I was sold, and I have to say the results were even better than I expected. It has the texture of a pancake, it tastes like  pancake, it even kind of looks like pancake with the golden outer later and fluffy interior.

Microwave Shortcake

Usually when I try a new mug cake recipe, it turns out because I base it on previous recipes that I like.  However, shortcake is kind of tricky because it’s not only less sweet than regular cake, but it also has a different texture.  I had to try out several different versions of this cake before I came up with this one that I’m happy with. Lucky for me, pretty much anything tastes good smothered in fruit and whipped cream so I didn’t waste anything while experimenting. :)
