Fresh Orange Italian Cream Cake

Serves 12-16

Ingredients

Refrigerated

  • 1 Curd, Fresh Orange
  • 5 None large eggs

Condiments

  • 1/2 cup Butter or margarine

Baking & Spices

  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 3 cups Pecan-cream cheese frosting
  • 1/2 cup Shortening
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract

Nuts & Seeds

  • 1 1/2 cup Coconut, sweetened flaked
  • 1 Glazed pecan

Dairy

  • 1 cup Buttermilk

Other

  • Boxwood Garland (optional)

Preparation

  1. Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Add vanilla; beat until blended.
  2. Combine flour and soda; add to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in 1 cup flaked coconut.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cakepans.
  4. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Spread 3/4 cup chilled Fresh Orange Curd between layers; spread remaining Fresh Orange Curd on top of cake. (The Fresh Orange Curd layer on top of cake will be very thick.) If desired, loosely cover cake, and chill 8 hours. (Chilling the cake with the curd between the layers helps keep the layers in place and makes it much easier to spread the frosting.)
  6. Spread 3 cups Pecan-Cream Cheese Frosting on sides of cake, reserving remaining frosting for another use. Sprinkle 1/2 cup toasted coconut over top of cake, if desired. Arrange Glazed Pecan Halves around top edge of cake, if desired.
  7. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Arrange Boxwood Garland around bottom edge of cake before serving, if desired.

Instructions

ORANGE CAKE

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour two 8" round baking pans. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, toss together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with a handheld mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, and orange marmalade on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add each egg, one at a time, beating on medium-high speed until fully incorporated, scraping down the sides as necessary. Add the vanilla extract and orange zest and beat again until combined.
  4. Stir the orange juice into the milk. Scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl and turn the mixer speed to low. Add the flour in 2 additions, alternating with the milk/orange juice. Remove bowl from mixer and stir with a spatula until everything is completely combined.
  5. Spoon batter evenly into prepared pans and bake 23-26 minutes or until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before assembling.

  2. Decrease mixer speed to low. Add powdered sugar, orange zest, vanilla extract, and reserved orange juice. Increase mixer speed to to high and beat until completely combined (approximately 2-3 minutes).

ASSEMBLE CAKE

  1. Trim cooled cake layers to create a flat surface. Place one layer on a plate or cake stand and cover the top with cream cheese frosting.
  2. Place second layer on top, cut surface down.
  3. For a sturdier cake, refrigerate at this point for about 10 minutes. When cake is slightly chilled, remove from refrigerator and spread more frosting on the top and around the sides.

  5. Make ahead: prepare cakes and frosting up to 1 day in advance.
  6. Cover cakes tightly and keep at room temperature or in the refrigerator until ready to assemble. Refrigerate prepared frosting in an airtight container until ready to use.
  7. Unfrosted cake layers may be frozen, wrapped tightly, up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before assembling. Frosted cake can be frozen, wrapped tightly, up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
