  • 3 In a small bowl or measuring jug, dissolve cocoa powder in hot water then add to batter. Stir until just combined and no lumps are visible.¬†

TIP: Use hot water that was brought to a boil and don't let it cool down. Add this chocolate mixture to the batter while still hot. We found that's the biggest reason why cakes sank in the middle and didn't bake right.
