      I've made this cake twice, and it turned out great each time. We enjoy the smooth texture and chocolate taste in this relatively light cake. I also used the egg yolks instead of an additional egg.

      The directions are very detailed but perfect. I used my homemade plain yogurt and instead of using an extra large egg, I did go ahead and add the 3 egg yolks. The cake rose well and was moist. Thanks!
