BAKERS...need advice re: BROWNIES

I have carbquick and it calls for baking chocolate...have you used or know if I can substitute cocoa powder instead ? If so, would you dilute first w/water ? Thanks for input.

Steps: Combine 3 tablespoons cocoa powder with 1 tablespoon of butter, margarine or vegetable oil. This will make the equivalent of 1 ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate.

No need to dilute the cocoa as long as you add it to the powder part of the mixture. Then add in the oils or melted butter with the liquid ingredients.

This will formula is usually on cocoa powder container or last page of old cookbooks. This is for 1 square of chocolate .

Terry's right for a recipe put cocoa with dry ingredients then add oil.
