Big Mama's Milky Way Cake

Ingredients: Cake
cup butter
2 cups sugar
cup cocoa
2 cups all purpose flour
cup buttermilk
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking soda
tsp. baking powder

And then
3 eggs
1 (additional) cup of buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla

Ingredients: Frosting
1 package confectioners' sugar (4 cups )
1 sticks of butter
2 Tb. cocoa powder (heaping)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 can Carnation condensed milk

Directions
Cake: In a bowl, combine in all the dry ingredients and stir to combine thoroughly. In another bowl, cream the butter and slowly incorporate the dry ingredients. Add buttermilk to the mix to keep moist. Once these are all combined, add the 3 eggs, the additional cup of buttermilk and the vanilla. Pour into three cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Frosting: Whip butter in a large bowl. Slowly fold in the powder sugar and cocoa. Incorporate the condensed milk a little at a time, just enough to make the frosting spreadable. Once frosting is made, fold in the nuts and stir.
