Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan with butter or coconut oil.

Recipe Notes

NOTE **if you can’t find a product with ‘live cultures’ the next best option would be to add a probiotic capsule to it and mix in well before using it in the recipe. (allowed on Stage 2 & 3 of Dr. Bakker's Candida Crusher diet.)
