[To make stewed apple] 1. Peel and core the apples and slice into 5 mm wedges.
2. In a skillet, add and mix the sliced apple, sugar, powdered brown sugar, and butter. Cover and cook over medium heat (stir them occasionally).
3. After about 3 minutes, open the lid and cook over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes while stirring. Once the liquid evaporates, turn off the heat.
4. Add the cinnamon powder to the skillet and mix.
Put the pancake mix, egg, sugar, and milk in a bowl, and mix with a whisk.
Put the butter into a microwave-safe container, and melt it in a microwave at 600 W for about 30 seconds. Add it to the Step 5 batter.
Spread any remaining butter from the microwave-safe container from Step 6 onto the bottom and sides of the rice cooker pan.
Put the liquid from the stewed apple from Step 4 into the rice cooker pan.
Place the stewed apples on top of the juice in a spiral pattern. If there is any liquid remaining in the skillet, pour it over the stewed apple.
※ Place the apples so the edges come out to the sides of the pan a little. This way, the side of the cake will be covered with the stewed apples and look nice.
Gently pour the batter from Step 6 into the Step 9 pan, and press the rice cooker switch. (※ Be careful not to move the stewed apples that you nicely arranged.)
Cook for 35 minutes, and open the lid a little to see if the cake is done. If it looks fluffy and ready, turn off the switch earlier.
※ When you open the lid, please be careful as very hot steam will come out.
Turn off the switch but leave the cover closed for about 10 minutes.
Put on some oven mitts and take the rice cooker pan out. Cover the pan with a large plate, and flip over to remove the cake from the pan. (It's very hot, so please be careful.)
This is the cross section.
※ If you don't have powdered brown sugar to make the stewed apples, use regular sugar.
※ I made this cake in an IH rice cooker (not the IH pressure rice cooker).
※ Depending on the rice cooker, you may need to cook it more than 1 cycle.
[Freezer storage] 1. Slice the apple cake into 12 equal pieces, place them in a plastic container with a lid and store them in the freezer.
2. For a fluffy slice of apple cake, place a piece of frozen cake on a microwave-safe dish, and microwave at 600 W for 30 seconds.

Story Behind this Recipe
I adapted the cinnamon apple cake with pancake mix in a skillet into a rice cooker recipe version.
Check and adjust the cooking time according to your rice cooker. ※ Depending on the rice cooker, you may not be able to make the cake. Please refer to the instructions for your rice cooker. Try to be careful during Step 12 as very hot steam comes out when you open the lid of the rice cooker.
