Preheat the oven to 350, and grease 3 8-inch pans.

Start by creaming together the butter and sugar on high until light and fluff, about 5 minutes. 

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Once the butter and sugar mixture is light and fluffy, add in the eggs and vanilla, one at a time.  Beat well and scrape down the bowl after each addition. 

Add the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately, starting and ending with the flour.

Mix for 30 seconds more, to ensure there are no lumps. 

Divide evenly in to 3 pans, and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
