Gluten-Free Fluffy Rice Flour Steamed Bread

Gluten-Free Fluffy Rice Flour Steamed Bread

This steamed bread is plump, soft, and great for anyone with allergies or for toddlers.

Ingredients: 6-7 muffin cups, each about 7 cm diameter (around the top)

Rice flour
125 g
Beet sugar
15 g
Aluminum-free baking powder
5 g
Milk (or soy milk)
130 g
Olive oil
10 g
Vinegar (wheat-free)
10 g


1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. (It should be the consistency of a thick drinkable yogurt).
2. Fill the muffin cups about 70-80% with the batter.
3. Fill a steamer with a lot of water and bring it to a boil. Place Step 2 into the steamer.
4. Cover with the lid and steam for 10 minutes (with the water boiling).
5. Cover the lid with a towel so that it doesn't drop any water.
6. Immediately remove from the steamer and they're done They are the fluffiest when freshly done. They are also delicious when cooled, but they'll become slightly chewy.
7. If you are going to warm them up, microwave for 10 minutes while paying attention to how they look. Or you can heat in a steamer for 10-20 seconds. If you microwave for too long, they'll harden.
8. If dairy is okay, I recommend adding chunks of cream cheese.
