Hey there. Hope your all doing well. I’ve been spending a lot of time playing around in the kitchen (who am I kidding, I always do that..) Now I have my 5 year old daughter along for the ride. We’ve been making a whole bunch of “kids friendly” snacks and foods. (Check out my highlight on Instagram) She’s a huge fan of chocolate cake, so she was more then okay with me wanting perfect this double chocolate loaf cake recipe.

I absolutely adore loaf cakes. They always come out of the pan, without out the same shenanigans that my bundt pan always pulls on me. In addition to that, it’s a great size for out family of 4.

Anyways, back to this double chocolate loaf cake..I’m sure you can see that it’s good. Like very very good. I mean it’s chocolate cake with chocolate chips. How could that ever be bad?!

dutch processed cocoa

I definitely recommend using specifically dutch processed cocoa. It’s cocoa treated with alkali resulting in a darker color and more mellow flavor. (Think Oreo cookies. Those are made with dutch cocoa as well.)

You should be able to find it in your local grocery store, along with regular cocoa powder. I did read that it’s possible to substitute with regular cocoa.

“Replace the Dutch-processed cocoa powder called for in your recipe with an equal amount of unsweetened cocoa powder. Next, knock back the acidity by adding 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda for every 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder used.

When you add the baking soda to the unsweetened cocoa, you are neutralizing the acid in the cocoa. With that small tweak, unsweetened cocoa powder should perform much like Dutch-processed cocoa powder in the recipe. The finished recipe may be a bit lighter in color. ” – The Spruce Eats
