Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

6 (2.10-ounce) or 13 fun-size Milky Way candy bars
1 C. butter, divided use
2 C. sugar
4 eggs
2 1/2 C. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1 C. buttermilk
2 t. vanilla extract
1/2 to 1 C. pecans, chopped


Melt candy bars and 1/2 cup butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Set aside.

Cream remaining butter and sugar together.

Add eggs, one at a time. Mix thoroughly.

Add flour and baking soda alternately with buttermilk to creamed mixture.

Add melted candy mixture. Mix well.

Stir in vanilla and nuts, if using.

Pour batter into greased tube or jellyroll pan.

Bake in preheated 350°F. oven for 1 hour or until top springs back when lightly touched. It may take less time in a jellyroll pan.

Remove cake from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Frost.
