I just made this recipe for a friend's daughter's high school graduation. It was very easy to make, but did require time. It made a very lovely cake which I filled with raspberry all-fruit preserves and chocolate cream cheese filling. I did use all of the egg yolks; adding them to the creamed butter and sugar. It worked out great! - 22 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

I thought this was a great cake. I made it for a party, everyone raved. I did use more yolks than the recipe called for. That's the only change I made. - 18 Mar 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
