Milky Way Candy Bar Cake

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!
