Recipe Blog Hop: Better Than Sex Cake

I was introduced to this cake at a family funeral. And I asked for the recipe.

I have since altered it a little. After all, that's what recipes are for, to make them satisfy what you and your family like.

I use:

1 box white (or flavor or your choice) cake mix
1 large box of instant vanilla (or flavor of your choice) pudding
1 bag of flaked coconut
1 can of crushed pineapple
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 carton of Cool Whip (or whipped topping of your choice)
1/2 cup pecans or (nuts of your choice)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Other additions or substitutions may be made if you wish, such as bananas, cherries, whole pineapple rings, toffee bits, but I do not use these.

Make box of cake mix as directed in glass 9x13 pan. After you remove it from the oven let it cool until warm, then poke holes in it with a fork.

Cook the pineapple and sugar in a small pot until sugar is dissolved. Let it cool a little then carefully pour it over the warm - not hot - cake. Then completely cool the cake before you proceed.

Make pudding as directed on package. Pour over cooled cake.

Stir 1/2 teaspoon vanilla into the Cool Whip. Pour the Cool Whip over the pudding and spread it.

Sprinkle coconut on the Cool Whip to cover the top of the cake.

Place pecans on top of the cake.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, a little at a time, stirring until they're melted. Drizzle over the top of the cake.

This cake must be refrigerated. And although it doesn't last long, it does get better with age. Kinda like, well, you know!
