recipe for better than sex cake

 

We realize it’s a big promise, but this cake really is amazing—made even more so by the addition of crunchy toffee. There are many versions of this cake, but this one happens to be a family favorite of our designer. We gave her grandmother’s recipe the Pure Madness treatment (and of course, a new name).

What you need:

8 oz. package of cream cheese (room temperature)

1 cup powdered sugar

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 T sugar

9 inch round chocolate cake (from your favorite recipe)

1 package chocolate pudding

1 cup Delicious Dark Toffee, crushed

A large trifle dish

 

How you make it:

Bake cake according to directions; let cool on wire rack. While cake is cooling, prepare pudding according to box instructions and store in refrigerator.

In a chilled metal mixing bowl, whisk sugar and whipping cream until cream reaches soft peaks (yields 4 cups whipped cream)

In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1 cup of whipped cream.

In your trifle dish, layer the following:

Layer 1: cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream mixture

Layer 2: chocolate cake, broken into pieces

Layer 3: 1.5 cups whipped cream

Layer 4: chocolate pudding

Layer 5: 1.5 cups whipped cream

Top with crushed Delicious Dark Toffee
