WHAT ELSE CAN YOU CALL THIS CAKE
I’ve heard this cake recipe called several things: Better Than Best Cake, Almost Better Than Sex Cake, Better Than Anything Cake, Better Than You Know What Cake.
Have you heard of Sex in a Pan? How about the Next Best Thing to Robert Redford dessert, Robert Redford Cake, or Better Than Robert Redford Cake.
No matter what it is called, this is not your ordinary chocolate cake. The rich, buttery caramel sauce adds to the moist texture of this recipe. Add the topping with whipping cream AND heath bar pieces. It's heavenly!
