Better Than Sex Cake

Connie "Kiyu" Guerrero


Can cake be better than sex? Let's see....we're talking about a powdered sugar-pecan crust layered with fluffy cheesecake, fudgy chocolate pudding, and whipped cream and cocoa topping!

Even with lightened ingredients, this lust-worthy lip-licker has the power to make you ditch your diet and scarf down three slices in one sitting! Takes longer to prepare than to swallow that last bite. Yum-my! - And, if you notice, this recipe just hit #40!

You tell me, your story...

How to Make Better Than Sex Cake


  1. Preheat Oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. To prepare crust, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and 1/4 cup sugar in a food processor; pulse 2 times or until combined. Add butter; pulse 10 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in pecans. Firmly press mixture into bottom of a 13 x 9–inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool completely.
  3. To prepare filling, place 1 cup sugar and cream cheeses in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Fold in half of whipped topping. Spread cream cheese mixture on cooled crust. Cover loosely; refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Combine milk and pudding mix in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until pudding is set. Spread the pudding mixture over cream cheese layer. Spread remaining half of thawed whipped topping over pudding layer. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cocoa, if desired. Cut into 15 pieces.
