Have made it twice, now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and the center was totally uncooked even though the outside was very dark, on the edge of burned. The second time I reduced the heat to 350 and baked for 45 minutes. Golden brown, just done in the center and had absorbed the brown sugar mixture almost totally. I really don't see the need to separate the eggs or omit the third yolk, though. This is supposed to be a dense, sweet cake, not angel food, so why go to the extra trouble? I think next time I'll try just creaming the sugar with the butter and mixing the whole eggs in. Very moist cake with good balance of flavors, though.
