  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover bottoms of 3 (9-inch) round pans with waxed paper; spray sides with cooking spray. Microwave chocolate 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.
  • Beat egg whites in small bowl with mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form; set aside. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating well after each. Blend in melted chocolate and vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating until well blended after each addition.
  • Add egg whites; stir gently until well blended. Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Immediately run small spatula around cakes in pans. Cool cakes in pans 15 min.; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely. Spread Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting between cake layers and onto top of cake.

Size Wise

This beloved and classic 3-layer cake is the perfect choice for a special occasion. Plan ahead and eat accordingly before enjoying a slice of this cake.

Substitute

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

Note

This delicate cake will have a flat slightly sugary top crust which tends to crack. The frosting will cover up these cracks.

    Well, I'm sure this is good - but it's not the original recipe. The original recipe called for swan's cake flour. Cake flour gives a lighter texture.

    Baked this cake for my fiance. He loves it. I love it! :) Will bake this cake again. Cheers!

    This is a very popular cake in my family. I make it with cake flour and not all purpose. It always comes out perfect. I would highly recommend it, it is time consuming but definitely worth it.
