gluten free, sugar free, dairy free = candida-friendly chocolate cake recipe

Posted on July 2, 2006. Filed under: Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

My mom had made me this cake a couple of times, but I decided to try it last night and it was very yummy — and easy to make.

You will need:

1/4 cup of dairy-free (lactose-free) margarine
5 very heaping teaspoons of rice syrup
3 eggs
2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla (or vanilla extract)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white rice flower (not brown)
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

All you have to do is find 2 8 inch round cake pans — grease them with the margarine. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees celcius.

1. Put the margarine, rice syrup, eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, rice flower and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl and beat until smooth and creamy (won’t take long).

2. Put half of the batter in each of the cake pans and smooth the surface of each. If you have gluten, sugar, dairy free chocolate chips (as I mention in my candida-friendly chocolate chip cookie recipe) then you can sprinkle them on the tops of both pans full of batter.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

4. Leave to cool for a half an hour or so, then place one of the cake halfs on a plate, and spread strawberry jam (with no sugar — and only if you’re far enough along in your candida diet to be able to accept natural sugars — so 4 months in or so), then place the other half on top.

5. Cut, and enjoy.

It’s so yummy! I had a quarter of the cake last night — you’ve got to eat it fast, because rice flour tends to crumble apart quickly.

Let me know how it goes and if you like it.

Fantastic recipe – I don’t eat sugar and I really really miss cake. Do publish any more candida-diet friendly recipes you come across!

Glad I could help and I’ll definitely let you know of any more I come across and test 🙂

Hi, thanks for posting your recipe. I thought that any sugars were prohibited on a Candida diet. Isn’t the rice syrup very sweet ? And isn’t it also a bad idea to eat white (i.e. not whole grain or whole wheat) flour ?

Rice syrup does not absorb into the blood stream, so you should be okay. I would wait until about month 3 of being on the diet, but everyone is different.

Also, the white flour is rice flour. You can also use brown, but I can’t eat gluten and therefore, can’t eat whole wheat or whole grain flour at all.

[…] Mom also made a fantastic dinner last night — I swear it was the best turkey I’ve ever tasted! AND she made me a pumpkin loaf and pumpkin cookies and rice cookies (all of which are candida-friendly and the BEST baking I’ve had all year — with the exception of the yummy gluten, sugar, dairy free cake that is)! […]

Sugary foods should not be eaten on a candida diet. Rice flour is very sugary, rice syrup even more so. This is not a candida-diet friendly recipe, but it sounds very yummy!

You can find info about the nutrition content of most foods by using the search function on . I find that anything with more than about 1 gram of sugar or 5-10 grams of carbohydrate (depends on in what form) per serving causes me to get worse as far as the candida symptoms. I’ve been getting much faster since adopting a high-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet, even though I scoff at low-carb diets in general and worry a little about working my liver / kidneys too much. I’ll be eagerly supplementing my diet with grains / fruits again when I’ve dieted away the fungal problem.

Well, Brian, as each body with candida is different (this is something I stress whenever I talk about it), it depends on what other things your body can handle.

For example, I can’t have any other grain than rice, so rice flour is IT as far as I’m concerned. If I could have spelt or quinoa or other things then I would supplement. While rice syrup has lots of sugar in it, it doesn’t absorb into the body in the same way as cane juice or cane sugar — and I have been able to beat down this candida while also having some natural sugar — mind you, not in the first 6 months or so. So, perhaps this cake is best described as a candida-friendly (note, I say friendly, not candida-proof, not 100% guaranteed to help you) recipe best for the later stages of candida (once you can tolerate the rice flour and syrup if your body couldn’t handle it before).

Get Koru testing done and you’ll find out the EXACT candida diet (including which anti-fungals you should take) to stick to. It’s tailored to YOU specifically. Do NOT make generalizations on this diet, it will only hurt others.

too aggressive, my dear – Brian was making a valid point. this is not a candida-friendly recipe, yummy though it looks. sorry mate 🙂

I’ve been in the learning stages of Candida for years, so much out there that conflicts. One thing I’ve learned and makes sense to me is that Diet alone will not kill the Candida. The very moment you take in foods to feed it, it will thrive and adapt once again. The Diet can help weaken the Candida, but Anti-fungals (several on a rotation so the Candida does not become immune the them) is the ONLY thing to kill it. The diet, however, is absolutely necessary without any cheating while killing Candida with AntiFungals.

So Brian, you may never “Diet away the fungus” without anti-fungal, just a thought.

I’ve learned this by help through a Nutritionist. Dr. Biamonte

Doth, I know you’ve mentioned the anti-fungal several times. I just thought I’d take this opportunity to STRESS it!!!

Love the site, lots of great info. Thanks!

Hi Yvonne,

I was just wondering if you have successfully gotten rid of your candida for good with the process you mentioned above?? And if so, how long did it take you?


Thanks Yvonne! You’re absolutely right. I also had to switch anti-fungals as the candida is aggressive and gets used to one. PLUS you have to find out which ones you can tolerate. A Naturopath can help you too.

Have tried the recipe as promised, it works and it’s pretty good! Thanks .H.

Oh good! I’m so glad you liked it!

What is this koru testing you’re talking about??
I’ve been having a hard time cause I don’t know exactly what to eat, if I do this test I would know everything I need to know? Cause I don’t know what antifungals to take either.. Thanks!

[…] you’re still on a candida diet, this made from scratch option is much better for your […]

Rice Syrup is NOT allowed on the Candida diet.

Hi Maggie. It depends on what your body can handle. I’ve always stipulated that if you had read the other comments — check it out. You may be able to. Not at first, but at about 6 months or so into the diet.

hey um i was wondering, could i substitute
the rice stuff for brown? cuz i can have white

:] thanks!

Hi there instead of using rice syrup try xylitol as this DOES NOT affect candida in anyway AT ALL. It is actually feeds the good bacteria and has less calories than sugar.

I am going to try this recipe but I will use Xylitol. My godson has a huge Candida problem. He is on the Autistic Spectrum and has been taking anti-fungals for 8 months!! He does rotate them and his candida has gotten better but still not completely gone. I like your site. It gives me hope. I will try to post some recipes which I have tried that are pretty good. Thanks for all your help!
Marisa from NJ

wow! I’ve been looking for a recipe like this. Thank you!

Hi there,

I have been fighting Candida for a long time, and me health was getting no better. Had been attending an excellent nutritionist to help with the Candida problem. She advised that I get tested for heavy metals in my system, and so, following a urine test, I was informed that I have mercury poisoning!!!!!!!

Anyway, several months down the line, and following consultation with a dentist who has been specialising in amalgam removals for the past 20 years, I have discovered that I have chronic mercury poisoning. The dentist did tests via a machine, (only one in Ireland), and informed me that I had such a high level of mercury vapour coming from my mouth, that if it was a factory, the staff would be immediately removed and the building shut down!!!!!!!

So I am now to attend a Doctor who specialises in Heavy Metal poisoning, and he will do liver function tests, blood tests, and help support my immune system so that the amalgam fillings can be removed safely, and then I am to take various treatments to remove the mercury from my tissues, as mercury embeds itself in your tissues!!!!!!!

Basically I am telling you this as it turns out that mercury creates a candida environment. I am not sure how or why, but they go hand in hand, and perhaps this information will help somebody, as the revelation has been a blessing to me, since I have been continuously sick for several years.

A word of warning though. . . . .
It is of utmost importance that you do NOT get amalgam fillings removed by a regular dentist, as it is extremely extremely dangerous if not done right!!!!!!!!!!

First of all though, you need to go to a specialist who will be able to identify whether or not you have mercury/heavy metals in your system. The doctor that I am attending stated that if not tested correctly, you may be told that your mercury levels are fine , as mercury embeds itself in your tissue!!!!!!!!!!! and so specific tests have to be done!!!!

I know that this is a site about recipes, and I was looking for some, but when I read how many of you are suffering as a result of this illness, and I have just been diagnosed with Mercury poisoning, I thought that I should at least let you guys know!!!!!!!!!

Again, do not go to any quack doctor or dentist to find out more about this. It is imperative that this is followed through correctly, as mercury is the second most dangerous substance in the world.

That mercury problem sounds tough. All the luck in the world with getting rid of it. I have systemic canidida and it flared up again from eating carbs. I did more research and found that i am a blood type O which is high protein and and should not be eating too many carbs. I bought the book Eat Right for your Type by Dr d’ Adamo and have been following it. I got rid of my candida in 3 weeks. I only lived on meat and veg and low carbs. No fruit, no sugar and only carb was oats in the morning. I praise the drs work as a friend of mine who is blood type A which is a vegetarian diet also had candida and she followed the veg diet and got rid of it and has never had it back again. Hope this helps. Good luck and may the sun shine on you warmly always

this chocalate cake is awsome it’s the best, deeelish

help iv’e been sick for a year i nead help

wow – thanks for all of the comments everyone. i’ve been away from the blog for a long time, but am going to try to get back into it. hope everyone’s doing well with the candida diet and your different variations of this recipe.

I want to bake this cake for my daughter’s birthday but my oven is in fehrenheit. 350 degrees Celcius is equal to 662 degrees farenheit and for starters my oven doesn’t go that high. What should the correct temperature be for baking this cake?

you forgot to add the oven temp. Set mine for 350.

I baked this for my son’s birthday and hate to say it, but I am very disappointed. It turned out flat and very dry. Is there something missing from the ingredients–like water or milk?

You will need:

1/4 cup of dairy-free (lactose-free) margarine
5 very heaping teaspoons of rice syrup
3 eggs
2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla (or vanilla extract)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white rice flower (not brown)
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder


Hi – I don’t often comment but feel compelled to correct. While I agree that rice syrup is sugar, eggs are NOT dairy and white and brown rice flour ARE gluten-free. Gluten is only found in derivatives of wheat, barley and rye, and dairy comes from cows, not chickens.

Your recipe sounds delicious!!! It’s always nice to see that there are options out there for people who have serious food restrictions. Unfortunately your claim that this is safe for candida sufferers is somewhat misleading. While it may be safe for those who have reincorporated sugars back into their diet after a lengthy cleanse/elimination, for those who are trying to eliminate/flush/cleanse from Candida, even rice sugar is still a no no. Any type of sugar is a no-no while trying to flush the candida from your system. In most cases you should persevere for 3 months and in others for up to 6 months with no sugars at all, not even grains (YES WHOLE GRAINS!!) as they turn into sugar once ingested… I sometimes worry that tags are meant more for your click through rate/sponsors/page views and page popularity then for the actual person who is truly in need candida safe option. I’m sure that your intention is not to mislead people. Why not put a more thorough disclaimer in your introduction?

Hi, What about what Esther Hicks channeling Abraham says about illness Do not beat the drum (focus) on what you don’t want. Focus on health instead. So, when we focus on the problem, it takes longer to go away because we keep telling ourselves what problems we have and so, by Law of Attraction, we attract more of them. I believe that Candida is a problem of needing more Sweetness in life. Not in form of food, but in form of Fun and Play which are Spiritual and Universal for a Good Life. The work ethic had Fun and Play in limited amounts and caused guilt around them, but to really heal from any illness, I believe, we need Enthusiasm. We can find enthusiasm in our promptings to do creative expression, to express our unique being. What is the passion inside that talks to us in our dreams and prompts us to express our own unique talents that are Fun and Playful for us. Have we made those important?? I believe this concept heals all illness. Yet, it has to be a complete vibration elevation change. We have to really feel ourselves as renewed and eager, enthused and kind, helpful and cheerful, uplifting and musical, lyrical, light in our step and truly and advanced being that puts prime importance on Fun and Play – Unique Divine Expression – that brings meaning to life and enthusiasm into it. This is the ultimate healer.
Bless Enthusiasm and Intend it,

hi all,
please could anyone tell me is fine use jakob syrup in candida diet?
i use xylitol but i know is possible use stevia, glycerin, chicolin and chicoly extrakt.
thank you

Looks very yummy and the most important it’s Candida friendly as I care for such problem so much.

Hey there,

I don’t think white flours of any kind are candida friendly as they quickly break down into sugars.

I haven’t tried it but sounds okay. When make recopies for Candida type foods I would make sure you try Low GI foods. Low GI foods are harder for systemic candida to grow from. 🙂 Thanks for the tips!

I like the valuable information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check once more here frequently. I’m slightly certain I will be informed many new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hello, yeah this article is genuinely good and I have learned lot of things from it
about blogging. thanks.

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours as of late, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

It’s lovely value sufficient for me. Personally,
if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material
as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell

Amazing things here. I am very glad to see your article.
Thank you a lot and I am taking a look ahead to
contact you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?

You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but Ifiind this topic to

understand. It sort of feels tooo complex and extremely extensive for me.
I am looking aheadd on your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!

Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my
diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily
share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
