    Maybe this link will lead you to a source.

    This recipe appears to be French and has almonds as well as chocolate and rum:

    The only thing I have that is remotely close is a marble rum cake, which is actually a brioche. If you're interested, let me know and I'll paraphrase the recipe here.

      Thank you Burger Boy for the suggestion.!

      Your suggestion of the Eagle Rock Bakery & Deli was right on.

      Ordered a custom 8” “French Chocolate Rum Cake” and it is almost like Sarno’s.

      The icing/frosting is chocolate fudge, good but not exactly like Sarno’s.

      Substituted the pineapple filling with vanilla and the alternate filling layer is chocolate.

      Maybe a little too much Rum on the cakes, but it works.

      Try Eagle Rock Italian Bakery & Deli, Claros in San Gabriel (I think they get there stuff from Federicos Bakeries), or maybedo a Yelp serac for Italian Bakeries.I MISS Sarnos very much. I still see the daughter in the neighborhood at her place Mama Mia Cafe on Vermont, right across from the old Sarnos. Oh how I miss the cannolis. Ciao
