  1. 1

    Mix the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cocoa, salt and cinnamon together and set aside. Prepare your rice cooker by spraying the inside of the bowl with a non-stick cooking spray.

  2. 2

    Combine the remaining ingredients and mix well. Add these ingredients to the prepared dry mix. Mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened so you do not over-mix the batter.

  3. 3

    Pour the chocolate cake batter into the rice cooker and set a timer for 60 minutes. Check the cake after 45 minutes with a toothpick to ensure that it does not overcook. Toothpick should come out of the cake with only a few crumbs.

  4. 4

    Remove the rice cooker bowl from the machine and allow the cake to cool for 15 minutes. Place a plate on top of the bowl and gently flip over to remove cake. When the cake is completely cooled you can dust it with icing sugar.
