I think the name pretty much says it all. I don't think you would have to have a stand mixer, a hand mixer should do the job just fine. Wrapped up pretty this would make a lovely gift.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 cup brown sugar
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup oatmeal, uncooked (old fashioned or quick)
  • 12 cup chopped caramel candy (or use an equal amount of chopped Rolo candy, chopped)

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8x4 loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, oatmeal and caramel candy, stir to combine.
  3. Place egg whites in a bowl of a stand mixer, turn mixer on high and beat until stiff peaks form.
