I made this in the 1960s. It was called Robert Redford cake and was made with pistachio pudding.

I have made this recipe for 40 YEARS.I take it to all the pot lucks and get togethers. In all these years no one has ever had or heard of it but from me. It was originally published in the Daily Times Call from Longmont,Colorado in 1973 or 1974. The original recipe only used 2 boxes of vanilla pudding. My husband likes it with only chocolate also ,but he absolutely LOVES it with Pistachio pudding. My favorite Key Lime Pie Filling. My husband GOBBLES up desserts and this is the only one I have ever found that he can only eat of a little bit at a time. I'm curious where you got it from
