Stir egg yolk mixture back into saucepan with sugar mixture; bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until reduced and thickened, at least 7 minutes. Pour hot mixture over cake. Set cake aside to cool until set, at least 4 hours.

It only took 30 minutes to cook (luckily I was watching since it came close to overcooking)and was easy to put together. When I tasted it I was disappointed. The topping seemed to be lacking in tastiness in spite of having great ingredients. Read More
