you need to get rid of one level of lists, Flatten will help to do that,
like so:

data = Table[{x, y, Exp[-20*x*y]}, {x, 0., Pi, Pi/5.}, {y, 0., Pi,
   Pi/5.}]

Export[FileNameJoin[{$HomeDirectory, "Desktop", "tst.dat"}],
 Flatten[data, 1], "Table"]

that is slightly more complicated, you could try something like this,
but there might be other and better possibilities:

Export[
 FileNameJoin[{$HomeDirectory, "Desktop", "tst.dat"}],
 StringJoin[
  Riffle[Map[
    Function[row, Riffle[ToString[CForm[#]] & /@ row, "\t"]],
    Flatten[data, 1]], "\n"]],
 "Text"
 ]
