Milky Way Pound Cake

Milky Way Cake

Warm Milky Way Cake!  Yummy!

Bake and serve this Milky Way Pound Cake warm on a cold day with a hot cup of coffee! The sugar coating leaves the most delicious crust around the outside, that you’ll save that part for last. This is also the cake recipe we used in our famous Milky Way Cake we sold in our early days at farmers markets.

  • 3/4 stick butter (6 T)
