Directions: Dutch-processed cocoa powder is treated with an alkali to neutralize its acids. Because it is neutral and does not react with baking soda, it works better used in recipes calling for baking powder. Other recipes can be used if 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1/8 teaspoon lemon juice or 1/8 teaspoon vinegar is added. This will replace some of the acidity necessary for the baking soda to work.
