How to Make Italian Cream Cake Recipe + Frosting Recipe

Get Recipe:

My grandma Barb makes a mean Italian Cream Cake and here is the recipe she uses. Of course I’ve adapted it juuuuust a teeny weeny bit (shhh..don’t tell her) but it still packs that good southern, old-fashioned flavor and bakes up moist and fluffy. Wanna know something? I’m not really a big fan of Italian Cream Cake but I adore this one and it gets rave reviews whenever I take it places.

Best of all it’s really easy to make and the flavor…that buttery-vanilla-coconut-pecan flavor is just heavenly!! Ok enough of me swooning over this cake, just got make it!!

hey monique- i tried your cake last night and oh god it turned out to be a hot hot mess. not your fault. I don’t know what I did; while it was cooling on the rack it got stuck and started breaking obviously and it was all crumbs. The cake is so moist I guess. but yours held together really well.

anyway tasted fantastic. everyone loved it

I made one of these a long time ago. It was awesome. But one problem for the icing instead of using powdered sugar, I used granulated.. it was a crunchy icing. Lol still a good cake though. Next time I would probably use powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar. Lol
