Pinkie - ruby chocolate cake

I still had some ruby chocolate left in my kitchen after making both ruby romance scones and Valentine cheese cake, so I thought why not make a brownie/blondie style cake using ruby chocolate instead of dark/white chocolate and call it a pinkie ?

I have been told, that in order to maintain the red colour of ruby chocolate, the acidity (pH) should be high (=low in pH), so therefore I replaced some of the butter with full-fat sour cream as a a way of the getting of the colour. However, as I started to mix into flour, sugar and egg, the colour became more of the usual cake yellowish colour. So the pink part of the cake is the ruby chocolate melted on the surface of the baked cake.

I had a look as this recipe on ruby chokolade blondies by Gastro Fun as inspiration, and from there I made several modifications.
