I can't seem to find choco bake in any grocery stores in town. Is there something I can substitute in its place? I am making an icebox cake/chocolate eclair kind of dessert which calls for choco bake. Any suggestions?
As for a substitute, usually considered to a tablespoon of vegetable oil and 3-4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Depends on which source you consult whether it is 3 or 4 tablespoons, it is intended to the equivalent of an ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate. If your recipe does not require room temperature liquid chocolate, you can also substitute melted and cooled unsweetened baking chocolate, one ounce for each envelope. My guess is that for your Fudge Ribbon cake that may be the best option. http://forums.about.com/n/pfx/forum.aspx?tsn=1&nav=messages&webtag=ab-busycooks&tid=2379
