What?! 11 Milky Way's...(recipe share)

That is what I thought when I came across this recipe a couple weeks ago. I knew I had to give it a try it looked so yummy and sounded so good. See I'm not much of a "Cake" type person. I like Red Velvet and Texas Sheet Cake. I prefer Pies and Cobblers. Well with this Milky Way Cake recipe I red that is was a sticky style cake..which I love gooey brownies. So I headed to my local Sams to purchase a box of Milky Way candy bars(Regular Size), at first I grabbed the King size bars..whoa those things are on the $$$ I say I could have used those and just cut them in half for what I needed for the recipe, but nah I got the regular size box.

So I get back and decide to dive right in and make this cake..first I don't have a double boiler so I had to use two pots, which was fine. got everything all Melted, Mixed an in the Oven. I whipped up the icing. Now already this cake is needed a glass of cold milk to drink after licking the bowl...hehe..I know, I know not suppose to do that, but hey I have done that all my life licking the bowl after whipping up a batch of brownies..hehe

The Cake is finally done..I waited an then added the icing..too me I think its a bit to much icing. Well I didn't even let the cake get cool all the way an I had to stick a spoon in a give it a try..OMGOODNESS!!! WOW!!! this cake is awesome, especially warm. I think its a spoon style cake. It was a big hit in my house, it didn't last long. My mom had me drop off a couple pieces at her place of work an the Owners fell in love with the cake an asked for the recipe. **I don't take any credit at all for this recipe** I got my Recipe from Ree The Pioneer Woman.

Recipe got from Ree at Tasty Kitchen


  • 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

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a double boiler or in a saucepan over very low heat, melt 8 Milky Way bars together with 1 stick margarine, stirring to combine. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside.

Sift flour and salt together and set aside.

Mix baking soda with buttermilk, then add 2 teaspoons vanilla and set aside.

Cream 1 stick of margarine with the 2 cups of granulated sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to the creamed mixture, mixing after each addition. Add melted candy bar mixture and mix to combine.

Pour into a greased jelly roll pan or 9 x 13 baking pan and bake for 1 hour or until cake is done in the center. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

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.

Pour over the cooled cake and allow to set. Cake will be very sticky! Don’t expect neat, perfect slices.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, then go run five miles!
