Italian cream cake Recipe

Updated on December 06, 2016

This recipe was sent to me by a close American friend Christy Garrett Wright. She has been making this cake for about 20 years now and it according to her is very delicious cake and even though I have not eaten this cake at all but the way the recipe sounds I am pretty sure she is telling the truth. The cake looks delicious and mouth watering and I cannot wait to taste it so I have decided that I am going to make this cake soon. This cake according to her is well liked and demanded by the children most. The cake is light and fluffy with delicious frosting. The ingredients are easily available in west though I cannot say the same about India but I am sure if I try super markets

  3. Coconut: Flaked ¾ cup.

Method:

  1. Take a large bowl and put butter, Crisco Shortening and vanilla extract in it.
  2. Now with the electric blender, mix them well till the mixture is creamy.
  3. In another bowl mix flour and salt.
  4. Add baking soda, coconut flakes and chopped pecans and mix them well.
  5. Now add the butter mixture in this and blend well.

  7. Now add one egg yolk (yellow of egg) and a part of butter milk in this mixture and blend well.
  8. Repeat same with remaining egg yolks.
  9. Now take another bowl and beat the egg whites.
  10. Now mix them in the batter.
  11. Pre heat an over at 350 F.
  12. Take three 9 Inch round cake pans and pour the mixture in these pans.
  13. Put these pans in heated oven for 25 minutes. Bake till the cake now start pulling from the edges.

How to make fillings:

  1. In a bowl put butter and cream cheese.
  2. Mix well with electric blender.
  3. Add vanilla extract and blend well.
  4. Add little bit of sugar and blend well.
  5. Repeat this till all sugar is well mixed.
  6. Now put the cake in 3 layers one of top of another.
  7. Put icing everywhere from top to bottom to in-between the cakes.
  8. After this take an icing bag with star tip and pipe icing around the edges on the top of the cake.
  9. Mix flaked coconut and chopped pecans in a bowl.
  10. Sprinkle this mixture on the top of the cake.
