Is it really better? Make it and see!
Better Than Sex Cake has been around awhile. But I bet you've never made it this way before!
Why the slow cooker? Well, for one, you can keep your oven free. Why do you wanna do that? Well, maybe you've got other stuff stuffing your oven this time of year.
Or, maybe you're going out. Work, shop, go for a run, meet your friend for drinks. It doesn't matter – while you're gone, your cake is baking itself!
Here's the easy how-to:
The hardest part of this recipe? Keeping your mouth from gobbling all the great goodies that go into it!
Make the batter from cake mix, water, oil, eggs, vanilla and half of the sweetened condensed milk. Pour it into your greased slow cooker and sprinkle milk chocolate chips over it all. I know. Come on. Really?
Bake it for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Watch it the last half hour, 'cause slow cookers are like snowflakes – seems like no two are alike.
When it's done, take the crock out so the cake stops baking.
Set it on a cooling rack and let it cool 5 minutes, then poke holes all over it with a skewer. Don't poke down to through the bottom, but get pretty close.
Combine the other half of the sweetened condensed milk with the caramel sauce and pour that over the warm cake.
Then sprinkle the top right away with the chocolate-covered toffee bits.
I lied before. THIS is really the hardest part of this recipe -- you've gotta wait for it to cool!
Just kidding. You CAN wait for it to cool if you want to. I do – to let that caramely stuff get all soaked into the cake good 'n righteous like.
But if you must, you may scoop it out right now and slather it with whipped cream and chow down. I wouldn't blame you one bit. It's soooo good that way. I have no idea why I'd know that...
When it's cool, cut into squares. Cover each piece with whipped cream, then wave your magic wand over it so caramel drizzle and toffee bits sprinkle down from the heavens.
You're entitled. Go on. See for yourself if this isn't better than...you know!
