Milky Wonder Cake

wonder why this cake is not called a Milky Way Cake since it has six Milky Way Candy Bars in it!  A friend of mine brought me a cookbook that she has had for at least 30 years.  It was coming apart and she brought it to me in a plastic bag.  She knew that a Milky Way Candy Bar is my favorite and she wanted me to see this recipe.  Well, this is the third Saturday in a row that I have baked new cake recipes.  My lovely recipe box is full of recipes that I have collected for years and I have decided to get busy trying some of them.  This past Saturday I baked the Milky Wonder Cake as well as a Boston Market Meatloaf from my recipe box.  They were both delicious!  I added mashed potatoes and fried okra and we called it lunch. 

We have fresh peaches from the fruit orchard.  It's our last peach tree that will bear peaches this summer.  We have had peaches since May and I am not complaining.   Our bellpeppers, jalapeno, cayenne, and sweet banana peppers are still plentiful and I'm making hot pepper jelly every chance I get.  We have pumpkins that are getting rather large and Eli enjoys seeing them grow.  We have been blessed with fruit and vegetables to eat and share with others.

6 Milky Way Candy Bars
2 sticks oleo
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 275 degrees.  Combine candy bars and 1 stick of oleo in a saucepan over low heat.  While they are melting, prepare cake batter.  Cream oleo and sugar until the mixture is fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.  Add flour and baking soda alternately with buttermilk, stirring until smooth.  Add candy mixture, mixing well.  Stir in vanilla and pecans.  Pour batter into a well-greased and floured bundt or tube pan.  Bake for 2 hours.  Cool for 10 min. and then remove from pan.  You may need to run a knife around the edge of the pan so that the cake will release from the pan.
