What's the name of the cake using 3 sticks of butter, and what's the name of the baker?

The cake was featured recently; the recipe was a re-print as it originally appeared several years ago.

Was it Danish Dream cake? It uses 15 tablespoons of butter and is a reprint from Saveur magazine.

I don't think so...but thanks Lindsay-Jean, for all your suggestions.

Lindsay-Jean, thank you for your help! Possibly a pound cake or its variation. That and the 3 sticks of butter are all I can think of.

This one from Rose Levy Beranbaum uses 2 sticks of butter, could this be it? https://food52.com/recipes/40780-rose-levy-beranbaum-s-chocolate-oblivion-truffle-torte

Lindsey-Jean, it wasn't Beranbaum's recipe, as I'd recognize her name; and possibly originally printed a few years before her recipe. A tag noted that the cake was a community favorite. The re-print was since 2018 began was a feature article. The cake did have 3 sticks of butter.

Hm, we'll keep thinking! Do you remember anything else about the cake that might help us find it?
