Patti's notes for this recipe:
My mother told me that when the Milky Way candy bar first became popular around 1940, my great aunt LOVED them. One day she was attending her Ladies Circle from church & she mentioned to one of the ladies that she had discovered a candy bar that she loved. My great-aunt said it was better than any cake she had ever baked. To her friend, that sounded like a challenge. At the next meeting, her friend showed up with a cake made from Milky Ways. My aunt was thrilled - Milky Ways and Cake together was a win-win & that recipe went on to become a treasured family recipe.I now bake it for my family!
