This pure unsweetened cocoa, from Holland, is blended from the finest quality beans. It is Dutch processed and is a full-fat cocoa (22%-24%), which results in a full, rich flavor. Use this cocoa to make delicious beverages and for all your fine baking needs.

Dutch Process vs. Natural Process
Natural Process is when the cocoa butter is removed from the cacao beans leaving the cocoa solids that are then ground in to a powder. When alkalis are added to the cocoa solids, which neturalizes the acidity and mellows out the flavor, this is called Dutch process.

Dutch processing produces a cocoa that is darker in color than natural processing. So using this cocoa in your recipes will create a darker color to your baked goods. Dutch processed cocoa will also create a taste in your baked goods that is more similar to the taste of a dark chocolate, and will have a little more of a moist consistency to the finished product, as compared to natural processed cocoa.

Chocolate Cream Roll
Recipe from The Common Ground Dessert Cookbook*

1/4 cup Bensdorp cocoa
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, sifted and then measured
1 tsp baking powder

4 eggs, separated
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extra
1 Tbsp rum (optional)

1 1/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or Kirsch

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2" pan.

Mix cocoa, sifted flour and baking powder

Beat egg yolks until they are very thick and creamy - about 10-15 minutes. Add honey, 1 tsp vanilla and rum slowly while beating.

Gradually add dry ingredients and beat until smooth.

Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry, and fold them into batter.

Spread batter into the oiled pan. It will be very thin.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Cool cake for a few minutes, then loosen the edges with a knife. Place a towel over the cake and with two spatulas placed under one end of the cake roll it up into the towel.

Chill cake rolled up in the towel in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Whip cream until stiff, then beat in maple syrup and vanilla or Kirsch.

Unroll the cake, remove the towel, and spread whipped cream over the cake.

Re-roll the cake, placing seam side down.

Chill for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

*The Common Ground was an amazing restaurant in Brattleboro, VT. It was a co-operative, community restaurant that opened in 1971. It was my favorite place to eat and I would make sure that any trip northward always included a detour and stop there. Sadly they closed years ago. This cookbook was published in 1983.
