Ingrédients
  

  • ½ cup margarine softened
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅓ cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 5 egg whites
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ cup margarine softened
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Instructions
 

  • To make this mouthwatering Italian Cream Cake II, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Don’t forget to generously grease and flour three 8-inch round cake pans to ensure easy release later on.
  • Next, it’s time to whip up those egg whites. Beat them until they form stiff peaks, which will contribute to the cake’s light and airy texture.
  • In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup of margarine and shortening until it turns delightfully light. Add in white sugar and beat until the mixture becomes fluffy. Now, it’s time to beat in the egg yolks, giving the batter a rich and creamy base.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flour and baking soda. Add this mixture alternately with buttermilk into the creamed mixture, making sure to mix well after each addition. To enhance the flavors, stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla, as well as some coconut and 1 cup of pecans. These additions will give the cake a delightful tropical twist.
  • Gently fold in the previously beaten egg whites, incorporating them into the batter while maintaining their fluffy texture. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans, ensuring an even distribution.
  • Bake the cakes in the preheated oven for 25 to 40 minutes, or until they turn a golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, let’s prepare the delectable cream cheese frosting. In a mixer bowl, combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup margarine, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Beat the mixture until it becomes smooth and luscious. For an extra burst of coconut flavor, you can add some shredded coconut to the frosting.
  • Once the cakes are cooled, generously frost them with the cream cheese frosting, using a spatula or a piping bag to create a beautifully decorated finish. For added crunch and flavor, you can either stir the remaining 1/2 cup of pecans into the frosting or sprinkle them atop the cake as a delightful garnish.
  • Now, sit back and revel in the sheer deliciousness of your homemade Italian Cream Cake II. Perfect for any occasion or celebration, this recipe is bound to impress your guests and leave everyone craving for another slice. Enjoy!
