For his birthday, my brother asked for a chocolate pound cake.
He wants it to be bursting with nuts and raisins.
¿Does somebody know a good recipe??
(The problem here, is that alkalized cocoa doesn’t exist here)
Thanks in advance,
S.

SILVIA:
Good afternoon. Can you state why you cannot employ regular cocoa powder????

Silva, another thought for you, You can just bake a recipe with melted chocolate (GOOD QUALITY) Also my friend with melted choco when melting stop at 90,DEGREES & place sauce pan on top of a heating pad. Dip nuts & raisins nestled in like a french fry basket in the warm chocolate. After cooling mix into the cake cake batter.

Anyway just my culinary imagination working overtime.

Let us know what you decide & how you did. Enjoy the rest of the day Silvia.

Freshkid, “regular cocoa” here is natural cocoa.
I´ve never been able to find dutched cocoa.
Unsweetened solid Chocolate is getting also
difficult to find.
I don’t know why.

I am experimentig with Rose´s suggestion (TCB)
to substitute chocolate with cocoa powder.

I tried with a brownie recipe, and after a some
trials, I had “my own” brownies recipe.

But I guess it doesn’t work the same with cakes,
and I don´t like to waste ingredients.

Keep you imagination working overtime!! You have always good ideas!

Anne, you had an excellent idea.
I forgot the chocolate bread,
which is also a favorite of us.
Perhaps I had forgotten, because i was thinking of
a big bundt cake.

After a lot of trials with/without bicarbonate
and baking powder, I chose to use the
natural cocoa and leave the other ingredients
as the recipe says. I mean, as far as i can find
the ingredients here.

Thanks for you help, Anne!

My pleasure!  I hope it comes out wonderfully!!

Anne, finally I baked a chocolate and sour cream Bundt cake,
that my relatives love. I used only nuts,
because I forgot to buy the raisins.

Thanks you all for your help

Silvia
