Stephy,I am Renee Peterson's uncle. She told me about your site a couple of months ago and I have enjoyed your writing.After reading the recipe for this one I wanted to share a recipe that my mom made for me every birthday as a kid. My wife now does it for me after much persuasion. I believe you will change your mind on what is "mankind's best chocolate cake" after trying this one. It is all from scratch.The Milky Way Cake2 1/2 cups sifted flour2 cups sugar4 eggs1 1/4 cups Buttermilk1 cup of chopped pecans (optional)8 milky way candy bars1 tsp vanilla2 sticks of butter1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp baking sodaOver low heat, melt 1 stick of butter and the 8 milky way bars. Set aside and cool.Cream the other stick of butter and sugar, add eggs, then add each of the remaining ingredients one at a time with a little bit of buttermilk between each addition.Once it is all mixed together add the melted mixture and the nuts (if you're using them) and mix.Butter 3 x 8" cake pans and fill each pan.Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, or until done. Set aside to cool.The Frosting1/2 cup softened butter3 oz melted unsweetened chocolate3 cups powdered sugar2 tsp vanilla3 tablespoons of milk or condensed milkMix butter and chocolate together. Stir in powdered sugar. Beat in vanilla and milk until frosting is of spreading consistency.Prepare to have your taste buds experience Nirvana.And, martinis are a passion of mine.
