  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover bottom of 13x9-inch pan with parchment; spray sides of pan with cooking spray. Microwave chocolate, butter and water in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Beat eggs and sugar in large bowl with mixer on high speed 5 min. or until thickened and lightened in colour. Blend in chocolate mixture and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake 35 to 45 min. or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Immediately loosen cake from sides of pan with knife.
  • Cool cake completely. Frost with Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting.

Take Along

Baking this cake in a 13x9-inch pan instead of in the traditional round layer pans makes it easier to bring this frosted cake to a potluck or other gathering.


If you don't have buttermilk, just add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk; let stand 10 min. or until thickened before using as directed.

How to Store the Leftover Frosting

Spoon leftover frosting into freezer container. Freeze up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before using as desired.
