I always prioritize the easiest ways which don’t rely on tools, therefore, I am more than eager to introduce another easy dessert recipe to you. How to make a rice cooker cake?
Why No-Even Cake?
It has everything you love in a normal cheesecake: the slightly bitter yet buttery chocolate tier and the thick, creamy cheese on top, and you don’t need an oven for it. You can save a lot of time with this easy recipe and try it whenever, wherever you want.
I won’t compare it with the traditional version because the textures are almost opposite. A rice cooker cake is usually light and fluffy, resembling a mousse, while the baked cheesecake is somehow firmer, almost like a custard.
Nonetheless, they have things in common. Both types have crumbs mixed with melted butter. In my recipe, I chose Oreo cookies because they are very popular where I live.
If you are a chocolate lover and want more of it in the cake, don’t hesitate to go for the best chocolate or cocoa powder! After all, it’s as important as the cheese cream.

We have included the instructions step by step in the video! After checking it out and gathering the ingredients, you will be more than ready to try this homemade Japanese cheesecake recipe by yourself.
Step 1: Prepare the chocolate slice
- Crush the Oreo cookies with a pestle. You can also wrap the Oreo in a clean tower and use your rolling pin to grind the cookies.
- Mix the crumbs well with melted butter.
- Coat the inner pan of the rice cooker with cooking oil, it will prevent the cake from sticking to the heated pot.
- Pour the Oreo butter into the pan and spread it around evenly for a flat surface.
Step 2: Prepare the cheese cream
- Stir the cream mass to soften it.
- Add the whipping cream and egg, whisking the mixture gently until they blend smoothly.
- Grate the orange skin before sieving the flour and the sugar into the mixture. Make sure you whisk the ingredients really well.
- Give your chocolate layer some more time to chill and solidify before pouring the cheese cream on top and forming the second layer for your cake.
Step 3: Cooking and serving
- Choose a 15-minute setting for the cake to cook thoroughly. The top layer will become jelly-like afterward, but you can give it a poke to ensure it’s no longer a wet, doughy mixture.
- With help from the cooking oil, you can easily remove the rice cooker cake. Don’t forget to flip it over once more, because the light yellow side is easier for decoration.
- The next step is dedicated to your creativity! As for me, I decided to divide my cheesecake into 4 equal parts. With the first piece, I painted zigzags on it with chocolate sauce. Sugar and candy sprinkles are my choice for the next quarter since my baby enjoys these sweet crumbs! Strawberry jam makes the third slice completely stand out, and I leave the last piece as it is.
- You can replace the chocolate Oreo with any cookie you like! Mint or peanut butter are great options to consider!
- For the original firm texture, we can add a bit of gelatin.
- Fresh fruits are also great toppings for this cheesecake. One useful tip is wrapping your fruits in a clean towel to absorb the excess juice and keep the cake from being overly moistened.
- If you cover the rice cooker cake well and let no air in, it will be as delicious as freshly made after a couple of days. Freezing it might prolong the time, yet I honestly don’t want to leave a favorite cake untouched for so long.
