Steaming allows your brownies to cook through, and creates that gooey texture we love and crave. Not to mention, it’s moist and delicious, and very, very much worth trying.
Line the inside of your rice cooker’s steaming basket with aluminium foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Prepare your rice cooker according to the manufacturer’s instructions for steam cooking, or by filling the inner cooking bowl to the minimum fill line with water. Cover and push the Cook button. Use a steam cooking setting, if applicable, and bring water to a boil.
Prepare brownie mix according to the package directions. Pour batter into the prepared steamer basket. Place steamer basket in rice cooker and cover.
Cook for 25 to 30 minutes, or until fully done. The brownies will be moist and gooey, but the centre of the batter should be set throughout and the top should not look raw.
Carefully remove steamer basket from rice cooker and uncover. Allow brownies to cool for 10 to 15 minutes in the steamer basket. Lift foil from the basket and cut brownies into squares. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
