Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup baking cocoa
2 cups boiling water
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
FILLING
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
FROSTING:
1 6 ounce package chocolate chips
1 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Whisk cocoa and water until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with cocoa mixture. Beat until smooth.



Pour into 3 greased and floured 9" baking pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks.



In a mixing bowl, beat cream, confectioners sugar and vanilla on high speed until soft peeks form. Chill until firm.



In a saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over medium heat; stir in cream. Remove from the heat; stir in confectioners sugar. Chill for at least 1 hour or until completely cooled. Beat with electric mixer to achieve spreading consistency.



Spread half of the filling over one cake layer; top with second layer and remaining filling. Top with third layer; frost top and sides of cake. Chill for 2 hours before cutting.
