Yield: 4 servings
|4||Milky Way candy bars(2.1 oz)|
|2½ cup||Flour, sifted|
|¼ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|2 teaspoons||Vanilla extract|
|1 cup||Pecans, coarsely chopped|
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. Cool 15 minutes in pan, then turn out on wire cake rack. Note: The nougat texture of Milky Way makes this cake perfect as a heavy, moist foundation for scoops of ice cream.
