Ingredients
4 1/2 regular Milky Way candy bars
1 cup butter, divided
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1//2 cup pecans (optional)
Frosting:
4 1/2 regular Milky Way candy bars
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
8 ounces powdered sugar
cream or milk
1/2 cup pecans (optional)
Directions
In a double boiler. Melt and stir together candy bars with half the butter (1/2 cup). In a small bowl, cream together the rest of the butter (1/2 cup) and the sugar. Add one egg at a time. In another bowl, combine buttermilk and vanilla. Combine all the ingredients by alternately adding flour and liquid mixture to the cream and butter mixture, beating thoroughly with each addition. Fold nuts if desired. The texture is better if the additions begin and end with the flour mixture. Pour into a 10x16x2 pan. Bake at 275 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Frosting: Melt candy bars and butter in a double boiler. Add vanilla and sugar. Use milk or cream to bring frosting to a good spreading consistency. Once cake has cooled, frost. Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
