Is it really "better than sex" cake?

this comes from paula deen's show; i have not tried it yet, but it looked delicious!

1 (18.25 oz) box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 (3.4 oz) box french vanilla pudding, plus ingredients to prepare
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup flaked, sweetened toasted coconut

preheat oven to 350.
prepare cake mix as directed using a greased 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. while cake is baking, combine the pineapple and 1 cup of the sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

remove cake from oven and using a fork, pierce holes into cake. pour pineapple mixture over hot cake and set aside.

prepare pudding according to package. spread pudding over cake and refridgerate until thoroughly chilled. whip heavy cream and remaining sugar until stiff. cover top of cake with whipped cream and sprinkle toasted coconut on top.

If cake is better than sex, that doesn't necessarily mean the cake is great...

Lol I actually know the cake by the name of Robert Redford cake but others call it this and the cake is delicious.

I think that would depend on the sex...like cakes, it can vary quite a lot.

At my age, sex doesn't matter. So the cake has to be better than...

To paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield, 'Eating has replaced sex in my life. I just installed a mirror over the kitchen table.'

I hear ya buckytom. You don't want to see me nekkid at anytime. Not even for brownies. And sex and cake? No to both of them. Too much effort. I just want to relax and enjoy my old age.

I've said it before, if ANY food is better than sex...you aren't doing it right!
