  1. Whisk rice flour, water, coconut milk, sugar, tapioca starch, yeast, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl until smooth. Cover with a lid. Let batter rest until air bubbles rise to the surface, about 2 hours. Stir well.
  2. Grease cake molds with oil. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Place cake molds on top and pour batter into each, leaving 1 3/4 inches of space at the top for rising. Bring water to a boil. Cover and steam until a toothpick inserted into a cake comes out clean, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If it is winter, place the batter in the oven or any warm place. In the summer, keep at room temperature.
  • If using food coloring, divide batter into 3 bowls and drop your favorite colors into each.
  • Use small heat-proof bowls if you don't have cake molds.
