    This sounds so good! Shirley is the milk in the icing Eagle Brand or evaporated? Because it says condensed I assume you meant EB but I want to make sure. Also, is it poured over the hot cake or do you cool the cake first?

    This looks great. The caramel icing would make it absolutely fabulous. One of my aunts use to make a caramel cake that I have yet to find one just like the one she made. Brings back childhood memories.
    Thanks, will be trying this one for sure.

    Hey, good stuff! I don't usually fix any type of cake, but since the picture looks more like bars, I can fool myself into making some!
