i must say, before i fold in the egg whites, the batter was super thick and it was hard effort to stir it with a hand mixer. Oh i had to do this cake with my small mixer as the kitchen aid merajuk :(.
The cake took about 20-30 mins to cook, and i layered it with the ganache and some almond nibs and chunks.
