The Inappropriate Cake

by Lauren


First and foremost, I would like you to know that the cake itself isn’t actually inappropriate. It’s the title of it that may be slightly offensive to some.

Just as the title of this cake is in question, apparently the recipe is as well. My mom saw this on Pinterest and while it was a big joke at first, we couldn’t help but notice how good it looked.

So, I googled the name of it (which I do realize was a bold move in itself) and I came up with at least 10 versions of the recipe.

The biggest issue here was that none of the recipes seemed to agree even slightly.


Paula Deen’s version was of course included in this search and called for pineapple while others revolved around crushed candy bars and cool whip.

Some required chocolate cake and others vanilla. Some had pudding and some didn’t. You get the picture…

This “Sex in a Pan Cake” is apparently being debated all over the internet and I was not about to try and complicate things with another version of my own.


While I never totally solved the mystery and found an agreed upon traditional version, I did land on the one that looked most tasty, filled with caloric delight and simple.

The process is really quite simple:

1. Bake cake.


2. Poke holes.


3. Pour on sweetly delicious toppings and candy.


4. Top with Cool Whip.


5. Eat! (Duh)


The Inappropriate Cake


1 German chocolate or other chocolate cake, baked, 13x9x2-inch

3/4 cup fudge topping

3/4 cup caramel or butterscotch topping

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

6 chocolate covered toffee bars

1 tub of Cool Whip


Do not remove cake from pan. After the cake has cooled, make holes in the entire top of the cake using a large fork or the handle of a wooden spoon. Pour (one at a time) fudge, butterscotch, and condensed milk over the top of the cake and let each soak in before adding the next.

Crush 3 of the candy bars and sprinkle on the top. Frost the cake with the whipped topping and crush the 3 remaining toffee bars to decorate the top.

  1. um..yes! don’t care what it’s called, i just want some! :)

  2. I fell out of my chair just reading this. Goodbye to Weight Watchers this week. I don’t care! have to have this. :)

  3. Skor bars and Heath bars have ALWAYS been my fave. This cake is fantastic! A scoop of ice cream on a warm cake would be even better than Cool Whip–that stuff weirds me out…

  4. It looks like crumbled heath bars on top and I will eat anything with heath bars!!!

  5. Heath bars may be just as good as sex! This looks fabulous!

  6. Holyyyy cow. That is one heck of a cake! Pretty unfortunate that I don’t like chocolate because I would dive right into that. The cake looks so moist and just look at the sauce dripping down the side. Ah!

    That is soooo unfortunate Caroline! Although, you could totally attempt this with another kind of cake. I bet it would still be reallyyyy tasty!
