1 ¼ cup rice flour
1 ½ cup water (divided)
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon yeast
In a small microwavable bowl, add in ½ cup water and microwave for about 30 seconds so the water is lukewarm. Stir in yeast and sugar. Set aside while making dough.
In a large bowl, combine rice flour and ½ to ¾ cup water. Add in just enough water to form into dough. Knead to form soft dough. (Note: if you add too much water, add in additional rice flour a tablespoon at a time.)
Pour yeast mixture into larger bowl with dough. Stir with a fork until everything looks dissolved; it will look watery.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for about 6 to 8 hours.
Prepare steamer (water should be simmering) and line the steamer basket with foil or parchment paper. Spray lightly with non-stick spray.
Pour batter into steamer basket. Cover and steam for about 20 minutes. (It is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out dry.)
Allow to cool before cutting. Lightly grease a knife before cutting because it is sticky.
