Simple Steamed Bread for People with Wheat, Dairy, or Egg Allergies

This fluffy and delicious steamed bread is loved by everyone who tastes it. Once you get used to the recipe, you'll be able to whip this bread up in 5 minutes.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Rice flour
50 g
1 tablespoon
Baking powder
1-1 1/2 teaspoons
a pinch
Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon plus
Soy milk
enough to make a batter that's runnier than pancake batter


1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and mix them together until smooth with a rubber spatula. The mixture should be quite creamy, and runnier than pancake batter.
2. Split the batter between 2 heat-resistant containers. We have these donut moulds at home so I'm using those.
3. I used to use Ziploc containers for this step but have found it works best with thin plastic containers since then.
4. Heat the bread for 2 minutes in the microwave. Take the bread out and if the edges are still white and raw, heat them for a further 20 seconds.
5. Once the bread has been removed from the microwave, remove them from the moulds and place them on a wire rack to cool. If the steam sticks to the bread it will become wet and sticky.
6. Once the bread is cool enough to touch it's ready to eat Please only cut the bread with a knife once cooled, otherwise it may stick.
7. Addendum - If you reduce the amount of sugar and cut the bread in half you can use it to make hamburgers! With this recipe, all of my family members were finally able to eat hamburgers together.
8. Addendum - My friend says that this bread is even fluffier if you steam it in a steamer rather than a microwave.
