A perfect cup of hot cocoa: creamy, smooth, and not too sweet

 

From the original recipe by Mrs. Emma P. Ewing

In: “Chocolate and Cocoa Recipes”. Walter Baker & Co., Ltd–1909, USA

Ingredients

1/2 cup (45 g) unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup (65 g) flour

1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar

1/2 tsp (3 g) salt

1 quart (950 ml) boiling water

1 quart (950 ml) boiling milk

Whipped cream (optional).

 

Sift together cocoa, flour, sugar and salt and put mixture in a saucepan. Add gradually boiling water and mix well (an immersion blender works wonderfully for this). Boil, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Add boiling milk and stir well, then simmer five minutes more, stirring constantly. Serve with whipped cream if you like.
