Black Soybean Matcha Tea Okara Cake Easily Made With Pancake Mix In a Rice Cooker

The subtle sweetness of the black beans matches so well with the matcha tea. The okara adds moistness and makes this a pretty healthy cake. Try it when you are on a diet.

Ingredients: Made in a 5.5 cup capacity rice cooker

Fresh okara
250 g
*Pancake mix
50 g
12 to 15 g
* Green tea leaves (optional)
1 teaspoon
2 medium
Soy milk
100 ml
Brown sugar syrup (Recipe ID: 1177934 etc.)
1.5 to 2 tablespoons
Raw cane sugar
10 g plus
Cooked sweet black soy beans
70 g


1. Cut the black soy beans in half.
2. Divide the eggs into yolks and whites. Add brown sugar syrup to the egg yolks and mix well, then add the soymilk and mix again.
3. Whip the egg whites. When they have formed soft peaks, add the sugar, and make fairly stiff meringue (with stiff, shiny peaks).
4. Add the okara to the bowl with the egg yolk-soy milk liquid from step 2, and mix well. Sift the * ingredients together, add to the bowl, and mix.
5. Add the whipped meringue in 2 batches. Use a rubber spatula and scoop the batter up from the bottom to mix evenly.
6. Put half the batter in the rice cooker bowl, scatter in the beans, and add the rest of the batter on top.
7. Drop the rice cooker bowl several times on a countertop to push out any extraneous air bubbles. Put the bowl in the rice cooker and switch the cooker on. When the cooking cycle is finished, switch off the 'keep-warm' function, open the lid and leave the cake to cool down.
8. It continues to cook as it's cooling down. If it fails to cook properly reheat on the 'quick cook' cycle.
9. When the cake has cooled down completely, put it on a plate and rest it in the refrigerator before slicing it.
10. I used an IH rice cooker. If your rice cooker's bowl is losing its non-stick coating, oil it lightly before adding the batter, and the cake will come out cleanly.
11. If you live in a country where it's hard to get a hold of fresh okara, see Piglet's "Homemade Soy Milk & Okara" - Recipe ID: 1346528. You can make it quite easily.
