Can you mix cocoa powder with hot milk in a recipe that has them both as ingredients?

Just a general Knowledge Question….suppose a recipe has cocoa powder and milk in its ingredients list, is it advisable to warm the milk and add the hot milk to cocoa powder (I am thinking since cocoa mixed with boiling water brings out its full flavor can you do the same with milk as well and have no adverse effect on the batter and the overall structure of the cake?)

Thanks.

Probably, the cake may have a slightly bitter aftertaste if I were to use milk? Just will have to experiment, I guess.

Phew, the cake was well received, made two of them, and was swiped clean. There was absolutely no aftertaste, no perceivable bitterness in mixing the hot milk with the cocoa.

Will take care not to do the same with chocolate though as advised.

Thanks for all the inputs, love this forum, smile
