What is Sex In A Pan?

Whatever you want to call it, it’s incredibly rich and decadent. I suppose the name indicates it’s as good as, or possibly better than, sex. But if you’re in a certain company, you may want to come up with a less controversial name.

Now the traditional version is made with a cookie crust with pecans. Then you make a cream cheese layer, top that with a vanilla pudding layer, and then a chocolate pudding layer. After that, you top the whole thing off with some whipped cream topping.

One of the Best Low Carb Desserts for Any Occasion

Despite the conflict between the name and the fact that I had family coming for New Year’s, I made this sex in a pan dessert for the celebration. I wanted something that looked cool, tasted extra rich, and it had to be something I wouldn’t make every day.

Fortunately, even with multiple steps, it turned out to be a lot easier than it looks! Just remember, it will still taste delicious even if you mess up on the serving process.

And if you love chocolate and whipped cream, it will be one of the best low-carb desserts you’ve ever had.

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a 9x9" baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, and salt. Add the melted butter and water and stir until the mixture begins to clump together.
  3. Press the mixture Press evenly into the lined baking pan and bake about 15 minutes, or until golden and just firm to the touch. Set aside to cool.

Cream Cheese Layer:

  1. While the crust is baking, make the cream cheese layer. Use a hand mixer to beat the cream, vanilla extract, and powdered erythritol together, until stiff peaks form. Gradually beat in the softened cream cheese, a bit at a time, until well combined.
  2. Once the crust has cooled, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over it.

Chocolate Pudding Layer:

  1. While the crust is cooling, make the chocolate pudding layer.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine almond milk, whipping cream and sweetener. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sweetener.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth. Slowly whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture into the yolks to temper. Then slowly whisk tempered yolks back into the saucepan.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle the surface with the xanthan gum, whisking vigorously to combine. Whisk in the cocoa powder and cook until thickened, about 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from heat, then whisk in the vanilla extract and butter pieces. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Cool the chocolate pudding for 15 minutes and then spread over the cheesecake layer. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Whipped Cream Topping:

  1. Use a hand mixer to beat the cream with sweetener and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream over the chocolate layer. Dust with cocoa powder (this works best through a fine sieve). Use a vegetable peeler or cheese slicer to shave chocolate over top.
  2. Refrigerate for 1-2 more hours (or as long as needed until serving) to fully set.


Tip: In Crust you can also add 1/2 cup pecan meal (or make it by grinding pecans in a food processor) or coarsely chopped if you like.

I didn't notice you giving recipe credit to Carolyn, #AllDayIdreamAboutFood Is that the "lazy" part of your name? It's wrong to steal from others and not give credit. Your recipe is word for word the same as hers. You should at least change a word or 2 in the recipe to make yourself look legitimate instead of copy/paste.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I’ve been doing low carb/keto on and off for 20 years. I have a terrible sweet tooth and those sweet snacks are always the downfall of my diet. I’ve tried EVERY low carb dessert, bar, snack, candy etc on the market; this recipe is BY FAR the best. I’ve never made pudding before and it was simple. I had made dirt cake for my family for Easter and this was my “dirt cake” Thank you so much!
