Sorry to give such a negative review, but this cake was not even what I'd classify as 'cake'. More like a chewy bar or something. I've baked and sold many, many cakes and have never had results like this with any recipe. It looked interesting with the egg yolks, so I though I'd give it a try. Instinct said, use whole eggs, and I'm thinking that instinct was right. Followed recipe exactly and sunk to less than 1/2 inch thick in the middle, sides raised to the edge of the pan and crunchy, with a very oily, strange texture. That being said, the actual taste of this was very good. Buttery and rich, but there is something definitely wrong with the overall recipe.
