  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover bottoms of 2 (9-inch) round pans with parchment; spray sides with cooking spray. Beat eggs in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until thick and lemon coloured. Add dressing and vanilla; mix well.
  • Combine flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture; mix until blended. Gradually add hot water, beating after each addition until well blended. Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Beat butter, semi-sweet chocolate and 1/3 cup cocoa powder in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar, beating after each addition until well blended. Add milk; mix well.
  • Stack cake layers on plate, filling layers with 3/4 cup icing. Frost top and side of cake with remaining icing.


For a mocha-flavoured cake, substitute hot brewed strong Maxwell House Coffee for the hot water.
