I don't know the origins of this recipe, but in my mom's recipe box it was marked as being her version.
The topping is like what you'd find on German chocolate cake in a restaurant.

I was in college when I made this cake by myself for the first time (1982). I had a "critical" roommate who surprisingly loved this cake - when we had visitors later in the day she invited them to "taste the best cake in the world".
