Grandma Moore’s Chocolate Cake

Grandma Moore’s Chocolate Cake

My Grandma Moore was a wonderful cook. She use to cook at the elementary schools and I am sure everyone loved her cooking. Her and Grandpa lived in a little house with a tiny kitchen. That did not stop her from cooking the most mouth-watering food.
We use to talk on the phone and talk about what we cooked that day. She has been gone for a long time but her recipes live on. She use to bring this Chocolate Cake to picnics and family reunions.
This is the BEST chocolate cake!  It gets made in one bowl and is everything you want a easy homemade chocolate cake to be..moist and so chocolaty.. The chocolate cake batter is really really easy. (Remember you are adding a box of chocolate pudding to the cake mix, so don’t buy the cake mix with pudding “in the mix”)
This rich, fudgy chocolate cake will melt in your mouth with every bite.
Creamy Chocolate Frosting
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup heavy cream
In the bowl beat the butter, cocoa powder and powdered sugar until combined. Add in the vanilla and cream and beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Spread a thin layer of frosting called a "crumb coat" all over the cake. This helps to smooth out the crumbs to prepare for the final coating of frosting. It is like a primer for a cake.
