Better Than *** Cake!

When scanning through the dessert section of the North Bay Dairy Women Cookbook to find a cake recipe for Paige to enter in the Marin County Fair, I came across one that sounded really delicious....and then I looked at the name......Better Than Sex Cake.

She doesn't need to know the name of the cake to bake or enter it.  In fact, a dessert name isn't even required when entering.  


As we're assembling the ingredients....

"Mama, what's the name of this cake?" asks Paige.


Think fast, think fast, think fast.

It's called Better Cake!

"Well that's stupid....NO cake is better than Disneyland."

I'm not sure it's better than either of those titles, but I do know it's really, really good.

Moving on..........

Here's what you need to do to try it out for yourself....

Mix 1 box of yellow cake mix, instant vanilla pudding, sour cream, eggs, oil and water; beat well.  {Full recipe below}

Stir in chocolate chips and pour into a bundt pan, sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake at 350 for 65 minutes.

The judges must have like it at the fair.  Today I picked up Paige's reward of $6 and her first place ribbon.  Bryce received a reward and first place ribbon for his Darn Good Chocolate Cake as well.

What would you fill in the blank with?

Better Than { fill in the blank} Cake

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix {small}
8 oz sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 - 10 package of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, oil and water and beat well.  Stir in the mini chocolate chips by hand.  Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake at 350 for 65 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes and remove from pan.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment. I love to hear from you! Have a fantastic day!

Made this cake tonight! It is moist and yummy and delicious! With just the right amount of chocolate. Unfortunately, I must say, that it is not better than sex. LMAO Cindy Rogers
