Looking for a pistachio cake recipe, very moist, maybe a syrup over it, like the one at Le Pain Quotidienne

Can't find anything like it online, can't stop thinking about it!

Because of course she did! Thank you! The one I had was an individual little cake, about muffin tin sized, with this sort of a topping on top. This might be a good place to start experimenting from. Thanks!

See this pistachio tart, which includes some brown sugar and corn syrup in its filling. Haven't made the recipe but it looks similar.

Ok, this one is a lot of effort, but in my opinion, so worth it: Milk Bar Pistachio Cake

I listed 2 recipes because one is in metric and the other is in US-friendly volume (?).

A former co-worker made this, twice, and it was amazingly delicious each time. While not difficult, it is a cake that required multiple elements that you could make ahead. I can vouch that the final product is worth the effort. There are good reasons it is a best seller for Milkbar.
