The Rice-Cooker Bread

Someone posted this on FB and I was immediately captivated by the idea. I cook practically everyday with my rice pot! Why not make bread with it????

I tweaked the recipe a bit and made a wholemeal version instead. I also used sunflower oil instead of butter.


1. 350g of organic wholemeal flour
2. 1/2 a cup of organic cow milk powder
3. 1/4 cup of sunflower oil
4. 1 tablespoon of soft brown sugar
5. 1/2 cup of warm water
6. 5g of active dry yeast
7. 1/2 teaspoon of sea-salt


1. In a medium sized bowl, add the warm water, a dash of brown sugar and yeast. Wait for about 15 minutes for the yeast to froth.

2. Pour the flour, milk powder, sugar, salt, yeast water and sunflower oil into the rice pot.

3. Mix all ingredients.

4. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic.

5. Put aside in a warm place for 1 hour to allow the dough to rise.

6. Punch it back down and place it aside for another 1 hour.

7. Once it has risen a second round, you can start cooking your bread.

8. Choose the 'cooking rice' function and cook for 1 hour.

9. Once the first hour is up, turn the bread over and cook for another 1 hour.

10. I only cooked mine for two hours though the original recipe required 3 hours. Serve hot once the bread is done! You can either eat it plain or with some butter.

Bon appétit!
