I picked this cake to make for the cake-a-thon for ChefIAm. This is very similar to a cake my mother used to make years ago. I think my mother's recipe just used the pudding without the added cream cheese. The cream cheese is where I had the problem, it separated from the pudding mixture while mixing it all together. I would change directions to say, soften cream cheese to room temperature, mix pudding and two cups milk, then fold in soften cream cheese. This is a delicious, not too sweet, moist cake. Will definitely be making this again with the above recommended changes.

I grew up on this cake! My moms been making it for years. I have made it a couple times now as an adult. Only difference is we use lemon flavored cake.

This is delicious. I never knew it was called Better Than Sex, but it's fitting. I've always had problems with the cream cheese lumping up too. This time I waited until it was completely room temperature, but it still created lumps when it came into contact with the cold pudding. I actually think this time it was too warm compared to the pudding. So the last time I made it, I sort of tempered it by creaming the cheese until smooth then added the pudding by whisk a little at a time. That worked for me and I'll do that from now on.
