In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with water, beating well after each addition.
Pour into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round baking pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 24-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
