Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.

Gradually add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Pour into prepared pan.

Special Equipment Needed

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.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Yummy! A rich delicious cake! Obviously more time and effort then a cake mix but well worth it. The frosting recipe made way too much. But because of the parchment paper on the bottom I was able to turn it out of the pan, cut it in two lengthwise with a bread knife and made 2 layers. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want this cake as my last supper :-D My best friend taught me this recipe. Now I can't get enough. It's by far the best dessert I've ever made. I make it for many social occasions and it is always a HUGE hit.
