Hi, My friend wanted me to make her a "Better than Robert Redford cake"? Any one know what is in it? I would be curious to try and make it.

Thanks,

Kim

I was curious myself. A quick search turned up this site:

http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,robert_redford,FF.html

The have 226 recipes for BTRR cake. I have yet to try them but they do look good.

Thanks Joe, I just checked out the site. So its not really a cake but a layered dessert? Maybe if I am ambitious I will make it soon. It doesnt look that difficult to make. I am kinda dissapointed its not a cake.

If any one tries to make it, please let me know : )

Kimmie, did you scroll down and look at any more recipes on that page? #8 in particular, it is a cake, not the same as the first ones listed. I ask only because we were just discussing this at work the other day, because we'd all heard of about 4 different versions of this, and most of the gals had referred to it as a "better than sex" cake!

I have had both...the layered dessert with the baked crust then cream cheese and pudding layers--it is really really good, very light, not too rich, and you can use low fat/fat free cool whip and cream cheese and sugar free pudding mix to make it a little lighter! And the german chocolate cake with the caramel and such (#icon_cool.gif is way tooooo rich! For my liking, I should say! It is just so rich, my mom makes it and I can barely eat a couple bites. It is just a really ooey gooey kinda dessert!

Hope this helps, maybe you can ask which one she was referring to, at least!

Is that what they call that dessert now? In my neck of the woods we used to call it "Better than s*e*x". would still call it that due to the fact that ain't NOTHING better than Robert Redford (Or Liam Neeson, or Il Divo for that matter!)
