  • Heat oven to 325°F.
  • Brush half the melted butter onto bottoms and sides of 2 (9-inch) round pans. Cover bottoms with waxed paper; brush with remaining melted butter.
  • Sift flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Microwave chocolate and cut-up butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Beat sugar and eggs in medium bowl with mixer 2 min. or until slightly thickened and pale yellow in color. Add chocolate mixture; beat until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Add buttermilk and vanilla; mix well. (If batter is not completely blended at this point, mix by hand with rubber spatula until mixture is well blended.) Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake 30 to 34 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Cool cakes in pans 5 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; remove and discard waxed paper. Cool cakes completely. Fill and frost with BAKER'S 225th Anniversary Fudge Icing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always delish This is my favorite chocolate cake recipe. I usually make this in a 13 x 9 aluminum pan. I had to make some adjustments on the time, adding about 10-15 minutes for the 13 x 9 version. The cake itself is light, sweet and has just the right amount of chocolate. The last one I made didn't last long enough to get frosted. If you want a heavy and dense chocolate cake, this isn't the recipe you want.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed. A little disappointed. Took a lot more time to make than I had thought. For some reason the cake really didn't come out. It was more like a brownie. May have just been me. The frosting was DELICIOUS & I would make it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I also agree that it was not good, very dry. I also agree that it was not good, very dry. I thought it was a lot of effort for a cake that was less than fair. I did however think the frosting was pretty good and its richness would be better suited for a different cake.
