  3. Add chocolate milk and whisk until combined. Sieve flour and cocoa into bowl and fold into chocolate milk mixture.
  4. Divide chocolate milk mixture evenly between prepared pans.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Cool completely, then remove from pans.
