Hey guys , it's Rachel .
What's up ?
And welcome back to my channel .
And today we are doing kind of a testing hack video where we are going to be making a giant pancake in a rice cooker , which is a sentence I never thought I would say in my life , but I thought it'd be a cool idea because I've seen buzzfeed make these super fluffy pancakes that look amazing .
The general technique they use is basically to kind of steam the pancakes .
And so I thought it seems like rice cooker would be a really good way to do that .
So I think it's gonna be a good time .
I hope you guys enjoy it and then you also have a good time .
And yeah , I think that's all there is to it .

All right , I think that is enough talking for me .
Now , without further ado , let's hop right into it .
All right .
So to start off , we're going to make our pancake batter .
You need 1.5 cups of flour , 3.5 teaspoons of baking powder , a half teaspoon of salt and then one tablespoon of sugar .
Go ahead and whisk that all through .
Get it combined .
You know the drill .
Then we're gonna add in one and a quarter cups of milk , a single egg and three tablespoons of melted butter just for a nice richness .
Then I'll grab my whisk again .
Mix it all through a few lumps in the batter is totally fine .
I didn't really have any of this time , but if you do , don't sweat it .
And so now it's time to cook the pancakes for the first trial run .
I just pour this into my greased rice cooker .
And then I noticed that a lot of recipes suggest putting your rice cooker on , keep warm , which I assume is meant to be just really gentle in the cooking .
And so then I flipped it on to keep warm and then I let that cook for about 30 minutes .
I want to say .
And then , and I checked it at this point , it was raw completely .
And so I decided , maybe not yet .
And so then I flipped it on for another 30 minutes or so to cook it for a total of one hour .
And at this point , it was looking nice and cooked .
You can see it springs back when you poke it , which is good .
So then I went ahead and ran a knife around the edge of the rice cooker and I grabbed a plate , went ahead , flipped it over .
It looks pretty good to me .
Honestly , the top looks kind of burnt , but from this angle looks like kind of a shadow in the back .
So all in all I consider this pretty much a success , a little crispy on top , but not a huge problem for the second trial run .
I decided to whip up another batch of the pancake mix , which by the way , you could totally throw in some blueberries , strawberries , banana chocolate chips , whatever you like .
And then I poured that into my grease rice cooker again .
And this time I wanted to put it onto the white rice setting just to see what would happen .
Now for white rice though , mine only goes for like 12 minutes at a time .
So then I checked it every interval about six times until it was like 3 a.m. and I was running out of time and patience and then I just decided to take it out the rice cooker .
It turns out is really , really is meant for cooking rice .
And so then I just looked it out onto a plate and decided to kind of give it a microwave if it needed to finish cooking , which I know , is cheating .
But basically from this experience , I deduced white rice will work .
But I think it really depends on your individual rice cooker .
And then for my final trial run , I decided to put some parchment in the bottom of the pan , kind of hoping it would help decrease any burning on the top .
And then I also set it for steam this time .
So I steamed that for 25 minutes .
At first , you can probably guess it was still super raw at that point .
But in total , after about 50 minutes to an hour , a toothpick inserted in the center came out out clean .
So then I just grabbed a knife , ran it around the outside and then flipped it out onto a plate .
This came out just as kind of crispy on top as the first one , if not more .
So , so my experiment didn't super work , but it's not completely blackened or charcoal looking .
So I figured it was probably still safe .
So now it's time for the taste test .
I went ahead and added some strawberries , some butter syrup , the works and these were so good .
Oh My gosh .
They are just super fluffy buttery .
They're nice and moist on the inside too .
And it's just a really satisfying pancake because it's nice and thick .
Overall , I would 100% recommend this .
I do think if you had a nonstick rice cooker bowl instead of a metal one that would really help prevent any burning .
But even with the kind of crispy top , still totally fine in my opinion .
So I hope you guys enjoyed this little experiment .
I had a lot of fun doing it .
Hope you give it a try .
And now that our pancakes are finished , let's hop into the , all right guys .
So that is our giant rice cooker pancake little experiment .
