I found this recipe buried in a box of newspaper clippings at the cabin we stayed in a few weeks ago. I have no idea where it came from originally, but I thought I would give it a try because I’ve heard lots of people rave about the “Better than Sex Cake”.
Apparently, there are two…yes 2…versions of this cake. Come to find out, there is one with a chocolate cake, drizzled with caramel and sweetened condensed milk, and topped with whipped cream. This is NOT that cake! This was good, but definitely not worthy of the title “Better than Sex Cake”…so my friends and I renamed it “Not Better than Sex Cake”.
