Italian Cream Cake

2 cups sugar

1 cube butter

1/2 cup Crisco

2 cups flour

5 eggs, separated

1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups coconut

1/2 cup nuts


Cream together sugar, shortening and butter together. Add egg yolks. Add flour with soda, alternating with buttermilk. Add nuts and coconut. Beat egg whites and fold into batter. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake @ 375 for 35 minutes. Cool

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. milk

2 Tbs. butter

2 cups powdered sugar


Mix cream cheese, vanilla, milk and butter until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar until smooth. Frost cake when cake becomes cool.

while making this I was listening to, Tempted by Squeeze, Above Ground by Norah Jones and Hey Ya by out Cast. I think the combination of music helped the cake turn out better.


  1. Hello Kristin, what a decadant cake this Italian Cream Cake is - just the kind I like! Thanks for visiting and following my blog and I'm here following you (#8) and I'm so glad I found we've found each other's blog. I'm going to enjoy seeing what recipes you'll be posting - and I know the joys of embracing my inner Paula Deen, ha! ha! ha! I just love her.

  2. Mmmmmmm I am going to have to make Hubs this cake. I am off sugar and most carbs for awhile so none for me.

    I am following you (a day late) from Friday Follow Over 40. I would appreciate it if you could stop by and return the favor.

    I am giving a Halloween Apron away to one of my followers 10/5

  3. Hello, first time visitor. Came by via Java and the 40+ blog hop. How yummy to be greeted by a recipe for Italian Cream Cake. I also peeked down and saw your photo of ratatouille (most likely I misspelled it). Ah, inspiration for what to make tonight. Thanks. I'm looking forward to exploring your blog further.
    Su-sieee! Mac
