About Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker

Chocolate connoisseur Robert Steinberg and winemaker John Scharffenberger founded Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker in 1977.The pair tested multiple combinations in their San Francisco kitchen before perfecting a unique blend of beans that highlighted the true flavor of cacao. The result is an array of distinctive chocolates. Each one is characterized by complexity and balance, not unlike fine wines. Today, Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker travels the world to source the finest cacao from small sustainable farms. Of the more than 150 samples we taste each year, only a few are good enough to become Scharffen Berger Chocolate.

Bake this cake, and everyone will ask you for the recipe!

That Chocolate Cake

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter the bottom of two 9-inch round cake pans. Line the bottom with parchment paper, then butter and flour the parchment and the sides of the pans. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, mixing on low speed. Mix in the eggs, oil, and milk. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in the water. The batter will be soupy. Divide the batter evenly between the cake pans. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes, then turn the layers out onto the rack and cool completely. To frost the cake, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread the frosting with a hot palette knife or icing spatula to give the frosting a beautiful shine. Run the knife under hot tap water and dry with a towel. Spread about 3/4 cup of the frosting over the top of the first layer. Top with the second layer. Spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides of the cake, heating the knife again as necessary.

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Scharffen Berger Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder

What a joy when I read about that! The only problem is finding a way to add chocolate to my diet without all the extraneous sugars that are NOT so healthy. In the past I have tried various higher percentage chocolates and found the Scharffen Berger bars to be excellent, so when I decided to get some cocoa powder this is one of the three I decided to try.

For my purposes I have been mixing it in with a small amount of dairy to add to coffee. Turns out this makes an excellent chocolate coffee. I do the mixing at the bottom of the cup and spend some needed time making sure it's blended, and then add the coffee after that. Very good and I get to call it healthy.

Using the unsweetened powder allows to add only the barest sweetner of choice--suit to taste so to speak.

The other thing I've used it for is to mix up a bit of cream, the chocolate and a tiny bit of Splenda...blend it up in a bowl with a spoon until it thickens a bit and then it's a great strawberry dip. Again, I pretend this is health food--and really as desserts go, it's not so bad if you are more interested in the science behind carbs vs fats (but that is a whole different topic).

In any case, of the unsweetened chocolate poweders I've tried so far...this one is the best product in terms of taste when making my coffee--it's good enough to keep me away from the coffee shop where the drinks are pricey and full of sugar.

eta: this is not 'dutch processed' so the healthy benefits remain intact.

I have to say that I was very surprised that this cocoa powder was as good as it is. I went to look for the best rated chocolate from Cook's Illustrated mag, and for whatever reason I decided to try this one. It is way better then the one I had wanted at the beginning of my search and also bought. With the two next to each other this one has no bitter after taste and is very mellow yet deep and the one I will buy from now on.
Sometimes "out on a limb" works.

This hot chocolate is the best homemade cocoa I have tasted. It is as good as the hot chocolate you can get in Europe

I have been trying many different brands of chocolate and cocoa. With this cocoa I found the one that best suites my taste and needs.

This cocoa has a very bold and full bodied chocolate flavor which blends perfectly with several different sweeteners as well as coffee for a delicious mocha.

The cocoa powder doesn't blend easily with cold water or milk, but then no other cocoa powder ever does. But this one does blend easily when the water or milk is hot.

It is difficult enough for diabetics to find delicious sweet stuff. So, here is my sugar free mocha recipe:
Every morning I start with making myself an espresso in a tall mug.
Add a tablespoon of Sharffen Berger's unsweetened Cocoa and mix vigorously until blended.
Add sweetener to taste (I use Truvia) and a pinch of cinnamon (sometimes I go wild and add just a little bit of cayenne pepper as well. Sounds weird? Don't knock it until you tried it!).
Finally add milk to fill up the mug and microwave until hot.
In just a few minutes I have a delicious mocha that Starbucks will never be able to match.

This cocoa powder adds a depth to cakes, etc. that just can't be explained easily -- you have to try it! I buy it as gifts for friends/family who are baking/chocolate enthusiasts -- everyone always loves and appreciates it!!!

I have to admit, I'm a chocoholic. I'm an avid baker and this cocoa made the most delicious, deeply chocolate cupcakes for my husband's birthday. He was very pleased and he's probably my toughest critic. The flavor is rich, decadent, and so satisfying! I love that the ingredients are natural. I do wish the price was lower, but don't pass this up because it's expensive. I won't bake with any other cocoa from now on!

I've been using Hershey's Cocoa to bake chocolate muffins and when I recently ran out, I decided to check if Amazon had cocoa powder on Subscribe & Save and found Scharffen Berger. It's more expensive than the Hershey's Cocoa 8 oz canisters that I've been buying for around $3 but the good reviews really made me want to try it. I'm so glad I did because it did not disappoint! The chocolate is rich and my chocolate muffins turned out perfectly moist and delicious! The best part is that the ingredients are all natural. :) I definitely won't be going back to Hershey's Cocoa.

I used this cocoa to make chocolate buttercream icing. The icing was very tasty, and it definitely came out better than when I use grocery-store cocoa. The only gripe I have is the container; it's difficult to measure out of and when you pour out of it, you end up with cocoa in the rim.
