Which Cocoa Powder Would You Have Used?

Velda Mae | Mar 23, 2009 05:40 AM

I just made Barefoot Contessa's Beatty's Chocolate Cake using Bensdorp dutch process cocoa power and it was excellent. The recipe doesn't specify whether to use natural or dutch process cocoa powder and includes both baking soda and buttermilk, which are often used with natural cocoa powder. Could I have used natural cocoa powder or did I make the right call in going with the dutch processed? What would the difference have been if I used the natural cocoa instead?
