Extra Dark Chocolate Cake
This is one of those Chocolate Cake recipes that will be a repeat chocoholic baking offender. The addition of Black Cocoa intensifies the dark hue to a rich chocolate black colour. Black Cocoa is a Cocoa powder that is heavily ‘Dutched’ it can be used with Dutch Cocoa, but used by itself the results will be too bitter, and will lack flavour. For an excellent outcome when baking, we recommend that you use 2/3 Equagold Premium Dutch Cocoa and 1/3 Black Cocoa in a recipe. This will retain the moistness integrity of the cake… we love seeing your kitchen success, so let us know how it goes!
