Better than What? Cake

cake 6-19 (17)

This cake is called the Better Than Sex Cake.

And yes, it is that good.

This recipe comes from a friend of mine at work. She makes this cake for any pot-luck functions we have and everyone loves it.

Let's make it, shall we?

cake 6-19 (6)

Preheat your oven to 350'

You will need the following:

  • 1 Yellow Cake mix
  • 1 Vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 German chocolate bar - grated

Grate the German chocolate bar either by hand or in the Cuisinart.

Mix everything together except for the chocolate. Mix for 3 minutes.

Stir in the chocolate chips, and then stir in the grated chocolate.

Below you will see the batter and the chocolate shavings being stirred in.

Bake at 350' for about 50 minutes until your knife comes out clean. It normally takes about 55 minutes for mine to be done.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before you take it out of the pan, then remove from the pan and cool.

My Mother used to make this and yours looks EXACTLY like hers! I found her old recipe but now I know that she modified it to include the German Chocolate. Thanks for the pics and for clearing this up for me. I was going insane wondering why mine didn't look like hers/yours.
