Milky Way Cake
- 4 Milky Way candy bar, (2.1 oz)
- 1/2 pound butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Melt Milky Ways and 8 T butter in double boiler. Let cool. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream remaining butter with sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add buttermilk alternately with flour and soda. Add vanilla and Milky Way mixture and mix until smooth. Fold in pecans. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake 1 hour, or until cake tester comes out clean.

Note: The nougat texture of Milky Way makes this cake perfect as a heavy, moist foundation for scoops of ice cream.
