Anyway, so this was made with a package of brownie mix, along with the remainder of the ghee and Baileys, and thrown into the rice cooker. They were actually not bad. I snuck a slice into hubby's lunch and he said he enjoyed the "random cake." Yay. And yes the texture was a bit more cakey than fudgey, but whatever.
That being said, here is an improvised cake as I try to use up some ingredients that I know I will not have time to use the way I'd originally intended... Saffron threads steeped in hot water, thrown in with some melted ghee, brown sugar, and all-purpose flour, then twice-cooked in my rice cooker resulted in this interesting novelty. It was quite dense and reminded me a bit of those Chinese New Year rice cakes but without the gluten, if you can imagine that. So I guess if you can imagine a cross between those glutinous rice cakes and dense saffron-flavored brownies, then that would be somewhat close. They weren't too bad but not something I'd serve to people.
