Toffee Treasure Cake

Remember that scene in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where the mother in law bring a bundt cake and the Greek family had never seen one before? I love the way she says "BoooondT! cake" This is a bundt cake. I normally do not bake. Too much work and too much precision for my liking. This cake is about the only thing I bake from scratch.

1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c sugar
6 Heath candy bars
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c unsalted butter
1 c sugar
2 eggs
8 oz sour cream
1/4 c butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour bundt pan. Combine cinnamon and 1/4 c sugar and set aside. Smash Heath bars and set aside. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add butter and mix til crumbly. Add sugar, eggs, and sour cream. Blend well. Spoon 1/2 batter into bundt pan. Top with 1/2 the cinnamon sugar and 1/2 the candy. Repeat layers. Pour melted butter over the top. Bake 45-50 minutes. Invert and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
