Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk

Method

Grease sides of 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan; line bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt ; sift again. Stir into butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of buttermilk. Scrape into prepared pan; smooth top.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Turn out onto rack; peel off paper. Invert top side up; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 24 hours or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
