Dutch process cocoa question?

Diane in Bexley | Oct 13, 2008 10:19 AM

This weekend I made a killer chocolate cake which called for Dutch process cocoa. I had Nestle cocoa in the house and used it. Tried to figure out whether or not it was Dutch processed, but box didn't say. Cake turned out great, but just curious, what is Dutch process cocoa, was Nestle's the real thing? what difference does that make in the cake? As a child, I remember seeing Mom/Grandma use Droste cocoa, but all I can find the grocery stores by me are either Hershey's or Nestle.

Also, glaze called for bittersweet chcoolate, which I used 70% Ghiradelli. Everyone liked it, but I am more a milk/semi sweet chocoholic, could I substitute semi sweet next time? TIA!
