Caramel Apple Milky Way Cake

My sweet Granny made the best Milky Way Cake when I was young. Sadly, her recipe is no where to be found. So…you can imagine how excited I was to find a recipe for this cake a few years ago when browsing through one of my cookbooks sitting on the shelf. Of course, with 8 regular size Milky Way...

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
