So let’s just gloss over the adorable fact that Millie had this recipe (and it was obviously something made often from the state of the hand-written recipe, on the back of an envelope of course). I did an internet search to see what else was out there in the world of “Better than Sex” desserts and it turns out that most of the recipes found start with a chocolate cake base instead of a yellow cake base.
Paula Deen’s recipe features crushed pineapple and no chocolate. There are actually several cakes out there with this name and many are chocolate, caramel and condensed milk- which, damn, doesn’t that sound good? But Millie’s recipe has a lot of very specific elements to it and after three pages of recipe hunting online I started to find variations using yellow cake mix and touting it as the “original” Better Than Sex Cake recipe… so there you go.
All I know is that I will be making this one this week.
