This recipe may be 25- 30+ years old. My sis used to make this cake all the time. She was the baker in the family. I am not. As she recalls, it was somewhat labor intensive, but well worth the effort. This cake was made by baker Robert Paroubek at Toojay's restaurant. I will submit as written from the newspaper article, which I still have. I am not sure what "6 bars" of German chocolate squares is equivalent to in ounces. Note: A medium-sized spring from pan is needed.
