...I would swear that Boca Negra meant disaster or big fat mess. When I flipped this out of the pan, a disaster was lurking behind the parchment paper. I should have taken the advice of others on the P&Q page and baked this for longer than 30 minutes. It came together beautifully. Even the butter incorporated very smoothly, so I had such high hopes for this. The top of the cake look just as described in the book after 30 minutes, but it just wasn't long enough to hold it's shape. The taste of the "cake" wasn't bad. I served it in cups like pudding, but because it was not baked long enough it was so rich that more than a couple bites was enough. I'll be curious if anyone was able to get this work with a 30 minute bake time.
