  1. In your ingredients you mentioned to sift in cocoa and flour but you neglected to give the measure of cocoa. I have added 3 teaspoons hoping it is correct but I also used all the chocolate in the cake mixture as you didn’t give the amount needed for the cake mixture and what was to be kept aside for the ganache.
