It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Straining Unsweetened cocoa.
Strain Unsweetened Cocoa
Push the cocoa powder through a strainer, after measuring it and before adding it to your recipe. Unsweetened cocoa contains cocoa butter, which can cause it to clump. To make sure it combines evenly with the rest of the dry ingredients in your recipe, it’s best to strain it.
Whisk together the dry ingredients, then add them to the wet ones, stirring until the mixture is evenly combined.
