I have a confession to make. Better Than Anything Cake isn’t really the name of this recipe. I have been making this cake for years and in my recipe folder, it is called Better Than S.E.X. Cake. But I didn’t think Pinterest would really appreciate that!
When I first started making this cake I was a young married wife. I very clearly remember when I had my parents over for dinner and I had made this cake especially for my dad.
When it came time for dessert, I told my dad that the name of this cake was the Better Than Sex cake. But I wasn’t prepared for his response.
He took one bite and firmly exclaimed “No, it’s not!”
My mom, husband and I immediately started laughing out loud! My dad has since passed but this is actually one of my favorite memories of him. I miss his humor.
While you may not think it is better than s..(you know!), it is a dessert that your guests will love.
