Cocoa powder is just one of the amazing food ingredients that are derived from the cacao seeds. Cocoa powder, when added to this simple pudding recipe, is what gives the pudding it's chocolate flavor. Cocoa Powder is sold as natural cocoa powder and is the end result from separating cocoa solids and Cocoa Butter. Cocoa powder gives an intense chocolate taste and comes in Dutch-processed which is alkalized or natural cocoa varieties. Natural cocoa powder is lighter brown in color, with a stronger more pronounced chocolate flavor. Cocoa powder is slightly acidic, so it usually works best to use natural cocoa powder in recipes that call for baking soda. Cocoa powder is also used to make hot chocolate recipe and no-bake cookie recipes. Alkalized cocoa powder is darker in color and less acidic, and has a milder chocolate taste than lighter cocoa powder. When making recipes that use baking powder alkalized cocoa powder is recommended.
Brown sugar is just one of the ingredients that adds to the richness of this simple pudding recipe. Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product that has a distinctive brown color because of the presence of molasses. Brown sugar is often made by adding sugarcane molasses to white sugar crystals that are completely refined, to reduce manufacturing costs. The brown sugar that is prepared in this manner is often much coarse than its unrefined equivalent, and its molasses may be easily separated from the crystals of sugar by simply washing it to reveal the underlying white sugar crystals. By comparison washing unrefined brown sugar, will reveal underlying crystals which are off-white because of the addition of molasses. The molasses that are typically used for food is obtained from sugar cane, because the flavor is more preferred than that of beet sugar molasses, although in some locations, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium, sugar beet molasses is used. Natural brown sugar, whole cane sugar or raw sugar are sugars that retain a small to a large amount of their molasses content from the mother liquor which is the partially evaporated sugar cane juice. Based upon weight, brown cane sugar when it is fully refined can yield up to 70 percent white sugar, the degree depending on how much molasses remained in the sugar crystals.
