I'm a bit ashamed to admit I'd never made any of the Pioneer Woman's recipes until today.
A quick trip to Wal-Mart for buttermilk and ELEVEN Milky Way bars and I was on my way to something really, really, really good. And bad.
Without further gooey adieu:
Pioneer Woman's Milky Way Cake (click here for recipe)
- 11 whole Milky Way Bars (regular Size), Divided Use
- 3 sticks Margarine, Divided Use
- 2-½ cups All-purpose Flour
- ½ teaspoons Salt
- ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
- ½ cups Buttermilk
- 3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract, Divided
- 2 cups Sugar
- 4 whole Eggs
- 2 cups Powdered Sugar
- 1 dash Salt
- ½ cups Milk (more If Needed)
- 1 cup Finely Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Sift flour and salt together and set aside.
To make the icing, melt the remaining 3 Milky Way bars with remaining 1 stick margarine (in a double boiler or in a saucepan over very low heat). Add powdered sugar, dash of salt, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and chopped pecans and stir over low heat. Add more milk if needed.
yay my nice camera is back...
Bet you want his eyelashes.
