I've got some flavoued hot chocolate from Whittards that I want to try in a cake, but can only find recipes that use actual chocolate or cocoa powder. Does anyone have a recipe that can use hot chocolate powder, or know how to adapt one that uses cocoa powder?

Thanks

I do this but just add a tblsp to my normal Victoria sponge recipe without changing anything else. my favourite is the xmas praline.

Hot chocolate powder contains sugar. Cocoa doesn't. So if you use a recipe that calls for cocoa, reduce the sugar a little.
