Black Magic Cake

Priscilla gave me her Bundt pan and a couple months ago she gave me this recipe:

1 cup butter
3/4 cup chocolate syrup
8 Milky Way bars (2.05 oz), cut up
2 cups sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 t vanilla
4 lg eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 t salt
1/2 t baking soda.

1 Preheat over to 325. Grease 12 cup Bundt pan. In Cooks Illustrated they had a tip where you melt 1 T butter and mix in 1 T cocoa powder and then brush the paste into your Bundt pan. Try it — totally worked. In a microwave safe bowl heat butter, syrup and Milky Ways. Whisk until smooth.
2 Whisk in sugar, then buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda.
I should mention that I didn’t read the instructions very well and I had 10 Milky Way bars but at the last minute I noticed the total on the whole package said 6.02 oz. OOPS. I used all 10 plus I threw in all the unsweetened baking cocoa I had in the house which was another 2 oz. It came out completely delicious.
3 Pour batter into pan. Bake 1 hour 30 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Loose cake from pan; invert onto rack to cool. I checked at 1 hr 20 and it was ready to come out. I believe the source is Good Housekeeping.

We gave Priscilla hunk and I served it at writers group today. It went over VERY big. I encouraged everyone to eat at least 3 pieces. I learned that from my Tante Hilla. Guests appreciate it.
