Better than .... Cake!

Hi!  It's Megan again with a super yummy recipe.  It's kind of like a better than sex cake, but I think it's even better!  As a bonus, it is all homemade, while still being very easy to make.  It would be a great cake to make for Valentine's Day, which is just around the corner.  It's sure to impress any audience! 

We will start with my Grandma Meier's No-Mix Chocolate Cake recipe.  Yup.  From scratch.  You can do it!  There are no eggs and no mixer involved in the making of the cake.  

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cups cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
1/2 package instant chocolate pudding mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp vinegar
2 cups warm water

Lightly mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt and pudding mix.  Then add oil, vanilla, vinegar and water.  Mix well but do not beat.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes until  done.  Cool.

chocolate syrup
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
caramel ice cream topping

Poke holes in the top of a cake- I use a butter knife.  Drizzle chocolate syrup into the holes.  Whip heavy whipping cream and sugar together until stiff, and spread on top of cake.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup and caramel topping.  Keep refrigerated.  You can make this the day of, but I wouldn't make it any further ahead.
