What is Dutch Cocoa?

Dutch-processed cocoa

This is cocoa powder that has been treated to reduce the natural acidity. The result is a cocoa powder that is darker in color and has a more mellow flavor. It burns more easily than unsweetened cocoa - so it should be avoided if the recipe calls for high temperatures.
