When you’re cooking only for one or two, desserts can present a problem: many recipes make way, way too much. This little rice cooker apple cake is a lovely solution. Even better, it’s fuss free: once the fruit is prepped and in the pan, the rest of the cooking is automatic. I use a little rice cooker to make this – it’s so easy! You could also cook this in an ovenproof skillet. Pour the batter over the apples, and bake in a 350˚ oven about 20 minutes, until the top of the cake is browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. This little treat will serve 4 at teatime, or 2 piggy eaters at dessert.
  • 2 medium apples (or 2 smaller ones)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, granulated
  • a little oil or butter to grease the rice cooker bowl
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 teaspoon baking powxer
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

Peel the apples, and cut them into wedges. Melt the butter in a six-inch skillet over moderate heat. Add the apples, toss them to combine, and cook about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften. Add sugar, mix gently, and let cook until the sugar is caramelized.

Meanwhile, swipe some oil or butter around the bowl of the rice cooker. When the apples are ready, pour them directly into the greased bowl, and arrange them so they completely cover the bottom.

Now put together a cake batter: Mix all the other ingredients quickly, and pour this over the apples, covering them completely. Put the bowl into the rice cooker and push the “on” button.

After the cake is cooked (the rice cooker will turn off or set to warm), let it cool in the bowl for about 10 minutes, then unmold it gently onto a serving plate.
