Caramel Apple Milky Way Cake | Simply Southern Baking


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 candy bars inside the cake, you know it had to be good…and it was!

Flash forward to the present.  After buying the Caramel Apple Milky Way Minis recently, I thought using these in this cake and adding chopped apples would be a great combination.  Well y’all, I was right.  This cake is amazing and is very moist!!!  It can be served with or without the caramel topping.  I actually finished off the last few pieces with no topping at all while drinking my mid-morning cup of coffee (now mind you, this was not all in the same day).  Since this cake keeps well, you can enjoy it at your leisure…that is, if it lasts that long!

      The recipe I adapted this from was made with 8 regular size Milky Way candy bars, but it didn’t have apples in it. I think it would be just fine. Enjoy!
