Adapted from a recipe by Rose Levy Beranbaum, this cake will serve at least 12 people. Chill it overnight, once the icing is on, but make sure to bring it to room temperature at least 6 hours before serving, it is dreadful cold. To serve, dip a serrated knife in hot water between each slice, or else it will tear abruptly. If serving fancy, you may wish to cut all of the edges off of the cake, that is okay, you will still be able to serve alot of people with one cake. I make mine in a 9x12 inch greased dish, and bake it exactly 25 minutes, the center needs to be underdone. I have not made it in a larger one. Prep time is indicative of chilling time.
