Cover bottom of 13x9-inch pan with parchment; spray sides of pan with cooking spray. Microwave chocolate, butter 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 and mixture is well blended.
Beat eggs and sugar in large bowl with mixer on high speed 5 min. or until thickened and lightened in color. Blend in chocolate mixture and vanilla. Add baking soda and salt; mix well. Gradually add flour alternately with buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 35 to 45 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately loosen cake from sides of pan with knife.
Cool cake completely. Frost with Easy Coconut-Pecan Filling & Frosting.
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.
