Favorite Italian Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
I have made this cake at least 3 times following it to the letter. It has turned out beautifully
Lost my original recipe. This was the clothes I could come to, a combined recipe between me and my auntie’s recipe . It was good but not my original recipe. I’m still working on trying to create the original loved recipe.
Made cake for special bday at work, every one loved it!!! Did put chopped pecans on sides. Awesome cake!!
Fabulous cake, I followed recipe to a tee. My opinion is that it really doesn't need all the nuts on the outside but that's just personal preference.
I cooked this for a dinner party and it was the hit of the night! My husband told me it was the BEST cake he had every had! My only advice is to make the frosting at 1.5 or double the amount called for in the recipe. I did not have enough and had to make more which did slow down the time to finish! I will be keeping this recipe for future events!!!!
Amazing! Great with whole wheat flour. We omitted the coconut. It doesn't need pecans on the frosting if you're a cheapskate like me!~ Theresa
Awesome raves from all who tried, including myself as I tend to be my own worst critic. We were doing an Italian themed dinner at church so I wanted to try to make this and decided five stars were good enough. The cake is so light and moist and the frosting perfect (although I did week it a tiny bit by adding 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and another cup of confectioners sugar so I could have some for piping. I actually took home an empty cake platter!
This is fantastic!
Didn't change a thing. Everybody loved it.
fantastic! making again soon!
