Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Room temperature eggs help the cake to mix easier and rise properly. Cold eggs tend to result in a far more dense cake than normal.
  • Do not mix heavy cream into melted chocolate. There is a reason they are separated this way. The water in heavy cream will cause the chocolate to seize.

Dutch Process Or Regular Cocoa

So, for the cocoa powder either can work. Keep in mind dutch process is more alkaline than traditional. This will transfer over to whether you use baking powder or baking soda. If using regular cocoa follow the recipe normally. Dutch process on the other hand remove the vinegar and swap out baking soda for baking powder.
