Recipe Notes
  1. If you do not have self-raising flour, then make your own by adding 2 teaspoons of baking powder to all-purpose / cake flour.
  2. The cocoa powder creates a deep, rich cocoa flavour. Some may find it can have a slightly bitter taste. You can use ½ the amount of cocoa powder called for in the recipe if you prefer.
