The first time I made this cake, it turned out so well. I used Hector's conversion to make it in a round cake pan. The cake marbled beautifully and baked up flat. At that time I didn't take a photo. It was late by the time the cake was done and I didn't make the ganache, so I thought next time when I make it I will take a photo.
Since the rules of this bake through is that you must blog about the cakes, here I am giving this cake a redo. This time I made 1/6 recipe of it (Marie, are you reading this?), baked in a 4 inch pan (volume measure 1 3/4 cup), it is teeny tiny.

I couldn't eat this cake. It tasted okay but the texture is odd, halfway between batter and baked cake. Hubby loved it. He said it tasted like marzipan and he finished the cake himself. He was very happy that he had the cake all to himself. I'm glad he liked it and glad that I made a mini version, it's the perfect size for a snack.
