Dutch-Processed or Unsweetened Cocoa Powder?

bmorecupcake | May 13, 2008 11:15 PM

I am following a recipe that calls for dusting cake with cocoa powder, but does not specify which type of cocoa powder. I have "regular" Hershey's Cocoa Powder, but read recently that Dutch-Processed cocoa powder should be used if you are not baking (e.g., in hot chocolate.) I don't understand completely the nuances of the two types. Any guidance?
