- Whisk liquid ingredients: Put egg, soy milk, sugar in a large bowl and whisk.
- Add Dry ingredients: Add white rice flour and baking powder and mix until smooth.
- Cook on medium heat: Heat a griddle (or frying pan, skillet), add a little oil, pour batter, and cook on medium heat (or lower) until bubbles start popping over the surface (about two minutes).
