Transfer 1/4 cup water to a cup or bowl. Microwave the water on High power for 10 seconds. (Water temperature should be 100-110 F (38-43 C)). Add the active dry yeast along with 1/2 tsp sugar. Stir to moisten the yeast. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes or until foamy.
Transfer the rice flour into a medium bowl. Add 3/4 cup water and combine together until smooth. (The mixture will be thick.)
Add sugar to the remaining 1 cup water and combine together. Microwave the mixture on High powder for 45 seconds. Stir together dissolving the sugar. (Liquid temperature should be 100-110 F (38-43 C)).
Add the yeast and sugar mixtures to the rice flour mixture. Stir the batter, combining all ingredients well. Cover the batter bowl with plastic wrap. Transfer the bowl into a microwave or oven. Place 2 cups boiling water next to the bowl to generate heat. Close the door and let the batter rest for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until large bubbles form on the surface. Stir the batter again, mixing well.
Turn off the heat and let the cake rest in the steamer (lid off) for 10 minutes.
Remove the cake from the steamer and let cool on the counter for another 10 minutes.
