request: polenta and chocolate cake or other dessert

I love the grainy, nutty texture of polenta (cornmeal) in desserts, and would be interested in making something that pairs polenta and chocolate - a cake, or cookies, or anything, in fact!

The only recipes I have seen require eight or so egg yolks, which freaks me out a bit - does anyone know what happens if I substitute a whole egg for every two yolks? I don't mind using a lot of chocolate, or butter, but since I usually don't like eating the yolks in general (I find them too heavy and rich) recipes requiring large numbers of them make me uneasy.

Many thanks...
