Milky Way Pecan Pound Cake

Milky Way Pecan Pound Cake

Ingredients:

  • 12 ½ oz. Milky Way candy bars
  • 1 cup butter, divided
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped pecans

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. Combine the candy bars with ½ cup butter in a saucepan and melt over low heat, stirring occasionally. While the candy is melting, cream ½ cup butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk. Mix until smooth. Add the melted candy mixture, and continue mixing. Stir in the vanilla and pecans. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 1 hour, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Remove from the pan and allow to cool completely. Cover and store at room temperature.
