Chocolate cake using egg yolks.

Top Review by Lorac

A simlpe and easy to make moist and tender snack cake. The coffee (I used 1 heaping tbls of instant decaf) offsets the sweetness of the sugar. Because I was using a glass 9x13 inch dish, I cooked the cake @ 325°F for 45 minutes and topped it with a bittersweet chocolate glaze.
