• 220g self-raising flour • 2 tbsp almond milk • 3 tbsp cocoa powder

5. Divide the cake batter into two equal portions. Add the milk to one portion, stirring gently until combined.
6. Mix the cocoa powder with a splash of hot water in a mug to form a smooth paste. Stir this paste into the other portion of cake batter until combined.

About Falcon Enamelware
Originally manufactured in the Black Country area near Birmingham, England, Joe Kleiner & Sons created the original enamelware brand, distinctively ice-white with the blue rim, the classic design is still instantly recognisable to this day. In 2011, the original collection was revitalised – creating new colours and cookware sets along with increasing the gauge of the classic mug, making the products more durable and hard-wearing.
As well as timeless elegance, Falcon Enamelware has enduring strength. Enamelware is porcelain fused onto heavy-gauge steel, giving it many admirable qualities - durability, smoothness and chemical-resistance. It can assume brilliant, long-lasting colours, and cannot burn. If you drop it, it may chip but it won’t break. Dishwasher-safe and oven-safe up to 530F / 270C, it can also be used on gas and electric hobs.
