Carefully pour 1/4 cup into the middle of the pan. Don't wait for it to spread. And, hey, don't grab your camera and take photos! I think mine doesn't look like the others because I might have worked too slowly with the photo breaks! :)
It is really neat to see the batter spread out into these circles.
Pour another 1/4 cup of the chocolate batter directly into the center of the pan on top of the previous batter. Repeat until you are out of batter.

The recipes are slightly different.
I used this one: Connie Veneracion's Home Cooking Rocks!
