1⁄2 cup cold organic decaffeinated coffee
1⁄2 cup yoghurt

1 1⁄2 cups rice flour
1 1⁄2 tbs baking powder
1 1⁄2 ts bicarb soda
1⁄2 ts salt


2 tbs xylitol
1 ts cocoa
1-2 tbs melted coconut butter


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease and line spring-form tin

Sift all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients, beat with electric beaters until thoroughly combined. Pour mix into prepared tin. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack. To ice place the cake back into spring-form tin to prevent any accidents.

    Hi Nat, This looks so yum! I suffer from candida however – could I use stevia instead of xylitol? xxx

    Hi Nat, Just wondering how this cake might be dairy free with yogurt being a key ingredient!? What can this best be substituted with?
