THE vegan, gluten-free dessert or cake with the funny name “Better than Robert Redford”. It’s also known as “Better than Sex Dessert” or “Sex in a Pan”.
Although not sure why it is called this way (can anyone tell me, please?), this is my absolute favourite dessert. And it’s not a problem at all to veganize it. Just sub every non-vegan ingredient with the vegan version and voilà – vegan “Better than Robert Redford” ;). To be more specific, the crust is just chopped pecans, vegan butter and (gluten-free) flour and the different layers are vegan cream cheese + vegan whipped cream, vegan chocolate pudding, vegan vanilla pudding, all topped with vegan whipped cream, along with chopped nuts and/or chocolate shavings or sprinkles.
I use to cook the puddings myself – no need for instant puddings, but you can use these if you are short of time (although the consistency might be too liquid for a stable Robert Redford Dessert). Go for a good quality vegan cream cheese and whipped cream. In principle, every ingredient and every layer should taste increadibly good on its own and then … well, then the combination is outstanding :D!!! You’ll never want another dessert. At least that’s what happened to me ;). You can also make it sugar-free. Xylitol and/or Erythritol (or something else) work well in this recipe.
