I need a recipe...

My step daughter wants me to make her a Better Than Sex Cake for her birthday (VERY fattening I know!) I know the ingredients but not the amounts for each ingredient. Does anyone have the recipe? I went to Food Network and did a Google search but couldn't find it. Thanks. I hope everyone has a great day!

Re: I need a recipe...

I thought for sure I had the recipe but can't find it. I did google "Better Than Sex Cake" recipe and got lots of recipes. Be sure to use the " marks. Hope this helps.


Re: I need a recipe...

I have it just a minute I have to find it

Re: I need a recipe...

Nevermind, sorry! I can't find it. They made it for my bridal shower when I got married (10 years ago) but I must have it packed away with my albums.

Re: I need a recipe...

Here is how I make it.

It is not weight watchers I do have a WW recipie if you will just let me know

1 box german chocolate cake-- make according to directions

after it cools just a little poke holes every 2 inches with a round spoon handle. Then pour 1 can of sweet and condensed milk in it (the small can) After that heat up a can of carmel topping and pour this in the holes after the sweet and condenced milk. Let this sit till cool I then top with cool whip and top that with heath bits.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your help! She didn't want me to "lighten" it up for her 17th birthday but I think I will make it again for a family get together and lighten it then. I was thinking I could make the cake with Diet Coke, use fat free sweetened condensed milk and fat free Cool Whip. I don't think there is a substitute for the caramel sauce and candy bars but at least I could shave a few calories off of this wonderful cake! I didn't know about putting the " around the name when doing a Google search. I'll remember that next time because when I put in the name of the cake it came of with many things that had NOTHING to do with cake!

Re: I need a recipe...

I found this one on another WW site--I knew I'd seen it awhile back but just couldn't remember which site. See what you think. I've not tried this one but does sound good.

1 cup flour
1/4 cup pecans, chopped finely
1/2 cup margarine (I used Brummel & Brown spread because it's lower in fat)

Combine ingredients. I used two butter knives to cut in the margarine until the pieces were about 1/4 inch size. Press into 9 x 13 dish and bake for about 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Then let the crust part cool.

Cream cheese layer:
2 8 oz. packages fat free cream cheese
1/2 of large container fat free cool whip
sweetener to taste

I didn't really measure the sweetener..I used splenda..I just tasted it to find out it was about right, then added a little more sweetener. I think I used about 1/2 cup. After this is mixed well, spread onto cooled crust.

Pudding layer:
1 package sugar free chocolate pudding (4 serv. size)
1 package sugar free vanilla pudding (4 serv. size)
3 cups fat free skim milk

Mix together well and spread on top of cream cheese layer.

Then put a layer of fat free cool whip (the other half of the container) on top of everything else and you're done.

I made this for a couples' game group I'm in. Everyone loved it. Hope you do too!

Makes 12 servings at 4 pts. each.
