"Excellent cake, very moist and delicious but it took much longer to bake than recipe said. For the lady asking about egg yolks you use them for something else and only use egg whites in cake."

"Looks interesting, but I'm confused. Are the egg yolks not used? They're not mentioned in the text of the recipe."
