PostHeaderIcon Different Japan: How to bake.

How to bake

I would just like to make this blog post to boast about my amazing skills in the Japanese kitchen. Nobody in Japan owns an oven. They do have these hybrid microwave/your child's first oven but they aren't very good. However, I heard you could "bake" things in the rice cooker. So I made a banana cake and it was absolutely amazing. I was preparing myself for some sort of aborted alien to appear but instead I made the best banana cake I've ever eaten. Ever. I'm fantastic.

Here's my.... loose recipe:

2 bananas that have gone a bit black (extra flavour)
3/4 cup of sugar
1 egg
1.5 cups of flour
1/5 cup of baking powder
Lashings and lashings of vanilla flavouring
Into a blender
Into a rice cooker
2-3 cycles of that and DA DA DAAAAAA

Wait, so if I've learned anything from your blog, this is where we go: おいしいですよ。Right?

Close. I'd say that if I was telling you it was delicious. The よ is like an exclamation mark at the end.

You'd say おいしそう which means "looks/smells delicious".

I also made a funny joke under my picture. Subarashii means wonderful and I wrote Subananarashii. Haha I'm funny.

And we'd say that even if we were being fed rat poison, right?

No such concerns with my cake though. I keep thinking about it. I'm gonna make one after work.
