Fair Substitute for Cocoa Powder

5 people found the following review helpful

Posted by Reviewer2509874 on Jun 05, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

Substitute for cocoa in chocolate cake. Use a full cup for a 2-layer cake if you want that sinfully-rich effect. However, be prepared to really play with a classic cake recipe to get a chocolatey flavor. Use less sugar, because carob is sweeter than cocoa. Add acidity and bitterness, because believe it or not, part of what chocoholics love about chocolate is that it has very complex components like that. I add sour cream and a tablespoon of instant coffee, then blend super-well. Remember, you can always use decaffeinated coffee.

Of course it's not as good as the real thing, but if you are trying to kick the caffeine habit, this helps by giving you just a little chocolate flavored treat. I used the powder in a shake, but there are many possibilities

Good replacement for chocolate, and it's naturally sweet too so I hardly have to add any sweetener. Used this to flavor my plain soy milk and yogurt.
