This baked up into a respectable cake. It is quite yellow, as promised, because of all those yolks. However, what I learned is that there is something very positive to be said of cakes that also utilize whole eggs. That something is lightness. Although these layers were quite moist and tender as promised, the crumb was dense. I prefer a less heavy, more feathery cake. Not only is this possible, it is relatively easy to achieve. A superior recipe to this one is Yellow Clooney Cake on this website. If you try them both, I'm confident you'll agree. All in all, this is a reasonable option that won't undermine your reputation for baking prowess. It's just not, however, as close to my ideal as the recipe mentioned above.
