Milky Way Bundt Cake

Milky Way Bundt Cake

10 Milky Way candy bars (2.1 ounce size)
1 3/8 cups butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In microwave or double boiler, melt 7 Milky Way candy bars with 1/2 cup butter. Stir until smooth, and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, cream sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.

In another bowl, whisk together flour and soda. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to creamed mixture, ending with the flour mixture. Stir in candy mixture and vanilla until well blended.

Grease and flour a Bundt pan to within an inch of the top of the pan. It is very important not to grease and flour clear to the top; it will run over, make an awful mess in your oven, and the cake will fall.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out dry.

Melt 3 Milky Way candy bars with 3/8 cup butter or margarine. Pour glaze over top of the cake, and let it run down the sides. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired.
