This recipe comes from my grandma who I miss dearly. She used to make it all the time and then taught me how to make it. This is the most moist chocolate cake I have ever baked or eaten. I hope everyone who makes this recipe enjoys it as much as I do. The recipe calls to bake this cake 30 minutes but in some instances I have had to go as high as 45 minutes. The icing that is used is very good but you have to beat it for 12 minutes. The original recipe makes a small square cake but I double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
