Striped Delight

Amy Herald


When I was little, my family called this "Better Than Sex" cake. But we took them to quite a many church dinners. Mom called it "Striped Delight" on such occasions. Call it whatever you want, its delicious! I personally like it best with the nut crust and a few chopped nuts sprinkled on top, but my sister is allergic so I sometimes make it with graham cracker crust. The one in the picture was made with chocolate graham crackers.
