I got this wonderful recipe from a not-so-wonderful person that later divulged it came from a top-rated restaurant. I'll never know if that is true, but the fact that the cake is wonderful definitely is! Little time consuming, but WELL worth all of your efforts. The original version has been changed to update ingredients and create a substitution friendly version. Experiment & Enjoy!
