Better than Sex Cake – with a name like this how can you go wrong? Chocolate cake, soaked with sweetened condensed milk, caramel topping, cool whip and pecans.


I have a naughty cake for you! Well the name is naughty but the cake is crazy awesome!

When Penny, a reader, sent me this recipe I just knew I had to make it. How could I not? With a name like better than sex cake, I knew I had to make it and see how it would compare to sex in a pan. I just had to, cause that’s just how I roll!

So I did, and although I’m giving you the full recipe here, don’t pay attention to my 8×8 glass pan you see in the picture because the hand model told me to only make a little bit since there are only 2 of us and we’re not going to eat all that cake. Well that’s the last time I’ll listen to him! Now I have to fight him for that cake because every chance he gets he goes to the fridge and steals a bite or two. There’s not much left, oh how I wish I made the whole thing. So please if you make this, please make the whole thing, because you will thank me.


First of all you cannot go wrong with chocolate cake. But then when you soak it with sweetened condensed milk and caramel ice cream topping, well magic happens. And then you go ahead and are even naughtier by adding some cool whip and sprinkling some chopped nuts and toffee bits on top, well then you’ve just gone overboard and turned this cake into a super star.

While it may not look like much in the pictures and you may say to yourself that it looks pretty boring, this cake will fool you. When you take a bite you will be hooked and I dare you to eat only one slice. You’ll probably take the whole pan, grab a fork and gobble the whole thing down. Although I strongly don’t recommend  you do that, you might get a tummy ache. But I do recommend you make this cake, now, PRONTO! Run to the kitchen, I’m pretty sure you have these ingredients. Did I mention the chocolate cake came from a box? Yeah! That’s what’s awesome about this cake!


Thank you Penny! Hugs and kisses!

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix (any brad will do, I used Duncan Hines)

    Hi Jo! I want to make both, this cake and your other layered sex cake for a birthday party this weekend. 2 questions, can I use your 1 ingredient caramel sauce for this recipe as a sub for the smuckers – or do you think that’s sweetened condensed milk overload. And in regards to both cakes. Can I make them the night before? If so upto what point? Thanks Jo
    PS I made your joe Montana guac, your cauliflower cheese sticks, your quinoa enchilada bake and your sour cream coffee cake this weekend. Everything was delicious and not one morsel went in the garbage! Thanks for your amazing recipes Jo!

      You can, but you’re right it will be sweet, but caramel sauce is sweet to begin with. LOL You can make them the night before, as a matter of fact the cake will be much better the next day. I’m so glad you’re enjoying all the recipes. :)

        This cake turned out so delicious! I did end up using the 1 ingredient caramel for this, was so yummy!!
        The sex in a pan was a different story…tasted good but was just a big melted mess, even though it was always refridgerated…not sure what I did wrong because I thought I followed all the directions exact. And only used 2C of milk per pudding.

    We make it with German chocolate cake and in the cake add fudge, caramel, and butterscotch all mixed together. A-mazing.

      Well it’s the hand model. LOL No he doesn’t, he’s got a good sense of humor, he jokes about it that he’s never going to help me with my pictures again but then he always does. LOL
