In respect to this, can I substitute bittersweet chocolate for unsweetened chocolate?
Bittersweet chocolate can also be replaced with unsweetened cocoa powder. If you need to replace more than a couple of ounces of bittersweet chocolate, go with the first substitute. This will keep the fat, chocolate solids and sugar at or very near the level intended in your recipe.
what is the difference between German chocolate and regular chocolate? German Chocolate is considered to be sweeter than semi-sweet chocolate, and contains a mixture of chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, various flavorings and lecithin, which is fat from egg yokes.
Regarding this, what can I substitute for unsweetened baking chocolate?
Chocolate, Unsweetened: 3 level tablespoons unsweetened cocoa and 1 tablespoon butter, margarine or shortening for every 1-ounce unsweetened baking chocolate. 3 level tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa plus 1 tablespoon shortening, butter, or oil for every 1-ounce unsweetened baking chocolate.
Can you substitute semi sweet chocolate for unsweetened chocolate?
Substitute semisweet chocolate instead of unsweetened chocolate, and then reduce the sugar in your recipe by 1 tablespoon per ounce. Using dark chocolate instead of semisweet chocolate would intensify the flavor a bit more, but you would still want to reduce the sugar in the recipe to keep it from being overly sweet.
