When mom made this cake we knew someone special was coming over. It’s delicious and one of my favorites. It will be well worth the effort to make it.

Italian Cream Cake

1 cube margarine

1/2 cup shortening

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

5 egg yokes

5 egg whites, stiffly beaten

1 tsp. soda

1 cup buttermilk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream margarine and shortening. Add sugar and beat until mixture is smooth. Add egg yolks and beat well. Combine flour and soda, add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in vanilla. Add coconut and chopped nuts. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Poor batter into three (8-inch) round cake pans. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Cool.

Cream Cheese

Frosting

1 8-oz. package cream cheese

1/2 cube margarine

1 box powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla.

Beat cream cheese and margarine until smooth. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Add vanilla and beat until smooth. Spread on each layer and entire cake. Can sprinkle top with nuts if desired.

Enjoy, Diane
