Better Than Sex Cake

A cake…Better than sex?! Well, I don’t know — but this one is DAMN close!

Some years ago, I worked in a medical office where we made cakes for each other on birthdays. The last birthday girl made the cake for the next, and so forth. It was fun! If you work in an office, I recommend doing this because you get to try SO many different kinds of cake!

One of the ladies in the office made this cake for our birthday girl — it was like heaven in my mouth!! I HAD to have the recipe!

I made it at home the weekend that I got the recipe, and my son loved it so much that he asks for it for his birthday every year now — and his friends don’t forget about it either! If you like chocolate, get ready to make your mouth melt!

Ingredients

  • Devil’s Food Cake
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 tub Cool Whip
  • 1 bag chopped Heath Bars (in the baking section)
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Caramel Syrup
  • A straw (kind of a big one, like a milkshake straw)

Directions

Don’t forget to thaw out your Cool Whip!!

  • Bake the cake just like the box says (I use milk instead of water, though).
  • While the cake is baking, mix the whole can of Sweetened Condensed Milk and almost half of the can of Evaporated Milk together (I use an egg beater because they’re kind of hard to mix).
  • When the cake is ready, take it out of the oven and poke holes all over it with that milkshake straw! 😈
  • While the cake is still hot, pour the milk mixture in the holes, around the edges, and all over the place.
  • Let it cool and put it in the fridge until it’s cold.
  • Spread the whole tub of Cool Whip all over the cake.
  • Drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrups.
  • Top with Heath bar bits.

🤤

P.S. — I’ve seen people use the end of a wooden spoon, instead of a straw. To me, it just doesn’t work as well because it packs the cake down to the bottom of the pan — the purpose is to remove the cake from the hole so the milk mixture can seep through to the bottom, which the straw does.

If you made this recipe, please share your thoughts or twists!

Easy & Amazing Salisbury Steak for Weeknights

Who doesn’t LOVE Salisbury Steak?!

My son used to beg me for the microwaveable stuff… 🤢 YUCK! That stuff might as well be canned dog food, imo.

So, I had to doctor it up a bit and find a way to cook it myself. What I did was SUPER easy, and he’s never asked for the microwaveable steaks again!

Not only does my son like it, but my friends that happen to visit on nights I cook this always enjoy it too!

Ingredients/Shopping List

  • Hamburger Patties — I get the ones at Kroger that are 10/$10, but have included a link for the cheapest ones I could find on Amazon.
  • 2 packages Brown Gravy Mix
  • Mushrooms (OPTIONAL)
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • salt & pepper

Of course, don’t forget your sides!

Directions

Cook each hamburger patty in a non-stick skillet (like this one) over medium heat until done. Season with salt and pepper.

Sautee` mushrooms and diced onion in a skillet with butter over medium-high heat.

Cook gravy according to directions on the package (by stove or microwave).

Once the burgers are finished, lay them over paper towels on a plate to absorb the grease. Then, place them in a deep baking dish — I use a 13×9″ dish.

Stir gravy, onions, and mushrooms together and pour over the patties.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

🤤

My son and I like to use either white rice or mashed potatoes with green beans and either crescent rolls or cornbread, as our sides.

With the Shopping List I’ve provided above, this makes 10 patties, so we always have plenty of leftovers! We normally aren’t “leftover people”, but these are still SO good the next day!
