This is what dreams are made of.
My house smells like heaven right now.
I haven't done much baking since I started working again, but that will all have to change with the discovery of this recipe. My next blog: How To Lose Unwanted Candy Bar Cake Pounds.
The cake baked for at least ten or fifteen minutes longer than the package directed. Different ovens will bake at different temps, but be aware that with the addition of extra ingredients comes extra baking time. But it is out of the oven now, and it is teasing me as it cools by sending tantalizing aromas throughout the house from the general kitchen area.
Well, there you go. This is an awesome cake, best to make when there are a lot of people to eat it with you. I'm not even going to share calorie details, so don't ask. Just know, the more calories, the better it tastes!
Charlie Manuel Milky Way Cake
Wow. Very good. Does not keep well though, so you should just eat it right away.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick unsalted butter
6 regular-sized Milky Way bars, cut into 1" squares
Preheat oven according to package directions for bundt cake pan.
Using a microwave, melt the butter and candy bars together, stirring occasionally. Mix well.
Prepare cake mix according to the package directions, then stir in Milky Way mixture.
Bake as directed on cake mix package.
(Note: I had to add an extra ten minutes or so to the package bake times)
