Better Than Sex Cake .

I got word from Sharon in Minnesota that Elaine's Chocolate Caramel Euphoria Cake is in her recipe box with the title "Better Than Sex Cake." I had to laugh, because when I posted the Euphoria Cake recipe I debated whether to post it or the recipe I have for "Better Than Sex Cake"—completely different recipes. That inspired me to look online. I went first to Cooks.Com and ther found 320 recipes for Better Than Sex Cake and 5 recipes for Almost Better Than Sex Cake (well, forget those 5...) Just think, at one cake a week, from Cooks.Com alone, one could celebrate 6 years of celibacy and never feel deprived! Here's the BTS Cake from my files.

1 box cake mix (yellow cake with pudding in the mix)
1 large can crushed pineapple, juice included
1 cup sugar
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding

1 small can coconut
1 large tub Cool Whip
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to temperature shown on the box. Bake cake as directed.
While the cake is baking, mix pineapple and sugar in a saucepan. Boil 5 minutes.
Remove cake from oven, and while it is still hot, poke large holes in the cake. Pour the pineapple over it. Set aside to cool.
When the cake has cooled, mix 2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding as directed. Spread 1/2 of the pudding over the cake.
Once that is spread, sprinkle a small can of coconut over the pudding. Top the coconut with 1 layer of sliced bananas.
Spread the rest of the vanilla pudding over the banana layer.
Frost with Cool Whip. Garnish with chopped nuts.
Refrigerate until serving. Store any unserved cake in the refrigerator.
