Milky Way Cake

I got this cake from Mom a long time ago.  Everybody loves it, and asks me to bring it again and again.  It's very fattening though. So yummy.

8 Milky Way bars or 13 miniature bars                             ½ cup butter (not margarine)
Combine in double-boiler and melt.  Set cool

½ tsp baking soda                            ½ c butter
2 c sugar                                            1 ¼ c buttermilk
2 ½ c flour                                         4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla                                       1 c chopped nuts (optional)
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven at 350 and grease 12 cup bundt pan. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar together.  Add eggs, mixing well, then remaining ingredients.  Mix well. Stir in Milky Way mixture. Stir in nuts (optional).

Pour into greased bundt pan and bake at 350 for 1hr 20 minutes.  Check for doneness at 1hr.  Cake is done when toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 5 minutes then turn out onto plate.  When completely cool, dust with powdered sugar.
