Better Than Sex cake

Maria Espravnik


There are many names for this dessert.. Better Than Sex, Robert Redford suprise, Elegant chocolate decadence.
There are as many variaions of this dessert as there are names for it. This is my favorite. I do add a cream cheese/sugar topping too, sometimes. Also can add milk to mixture PRIOR to pouring in the holes, use sweetened condensed milk. VERY RICH..
