Blend for 30 seconds on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Blend in the melted chocolate and beat 3 minutes on high speed, scraping the bowl. Spoon into the pans and level them well with an offset spatula. Bake layers for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Frost with Chocolate Fudge Butter Cream Frosting

  • The directions say grease a 9x13 inch pan and then continues to say bake the layers for 45-50 min? What size layer pans? 8" or 9"?
