    Does anyone know of any substitutes for cocoa powder? I need one tablespoon and just got back from the store without it. I don't want to go back so I thought maybe something else could be used?

    what are you making? do you have any hot chocolate? might work....

    this is what Baking & Dessert Recipes & Photos - Joyofbaking.com suggests, but if you dont have cocoa powder, i dont know why you'd have the other suggestions!

    3 tablespoons (20 grams) Dutch-processed cocoa plus 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar, lemon juice or white vinegar
    or
    1 ounce (30 grams) unsweetened chocolate (reduce fat in recipe by 1 tablespoon)
    or
    3 tablespoons (20 grams) carob powder

        I'm trying to make the Mexican Chocolate Pudding Cupcakes I saw on Martha Stewart. Mind you, I am not a cook. This is more in Jamy's (starchild) forte. Yeah, I don't have any of those other things. I think I will try my super dark chocolate 90% pure since it is not sweet and bakers cocoa is just unsweetened chocolate. Thanks for trying-want to come to Rochester and do a taste test?

          Essentially. Mexican chocolate is dark chocolate with cinnamon. I posted the recipe on the MS wannabe section. I am currently COVERED in batter. I really suck at this but I must say, the batter is fricking tasty.
