This recipe, just like the person it is named after, is a "CLASSIC". If you love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups you will LOVE this recipe.

This recipe is a winner!!! Extremely delicious!!! However, it is a different version of the famous "ROBERT REDFORD CAKE" that I was served at a Famous Hotel restaurant in San Diego CA and then at a famous restaurant in Hollywood CA and later in Cleveland OH during my visit there. Just for the record, the Pastry Chefs at the three locations did not use Peanut Butter or chocolate, it was strictly done with White Cake ,Vanilla Pudding, Vanilla Icing, Whip cream and Pecans.
