Cocoa powder
3 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
as needed


1. Put tofu in a bowl and whisk it thoroughly.
2. Add in all the ingredients (except the banana) and mix together with a spatula until there is no floury-ness. Then slice the bananas into 3cm pieces.
3. Coat margarine on the rice cooker bowl, and place the bananas pieces on the bottom.
4. Pour the batter from Step 2 into the rice cooker (I made this is a rice cooker capable of cooking 3 cups of rice). Then just turn it on and let it cook.
5. If you are using an oven instead of a rice cooker, preheat the oven to 180℃ (350°F) and bake for 35-40 minutes.
6. Once the cake is done cooking, let it cool a bit and then wrap it in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator.
7. If you leave it overnight in the refrigerator, you'll have yourself a really rich, moist, and chewy chocolate banana cake!

Story Behind this Recipe

I had tofu that was about to expire, so I looked at Kokochi-san's tofu brownie recipe and tried making something using pancake mix.
It's super easy if you bake it in a rice cooker.
But of course you can bake it in an oven.
