Tasteful Tuesday: Italian Cream Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018
Happy New Year! We’re starting 2018 off right here on the blog with a creamy, indulgent cake recipe with equally delicious frosting. Have a prosperous new year, and enjoy!
What You’ll Need:
Cake
  • Tasteful Tuesday2 9-inch or 4 6-inch cake pans
  • cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut or almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 large egg whites
Frosting (half this recipe if you prefer more cake than frosting)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 10 ounces cream cheese
  • 7 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat bottoms (not the sides) of cake pans with cooking spray and line with wax paper. Coat wax paper with cooking spray and dust with 2 teaspoons of flour. Set aside.
  2. Place 1/3 cup butter in a large bowl and beat with a mixer on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Lightly spoon 2 cups flour into dry measuring cups and level with a knife. Combine 2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt; stir well.
  4. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in coconut (or almond) and vanilla extract.
  5. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Fold egg whites into batter and pour batter into prepared pans.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 23 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for about 5 minutes on a wire rack. Loosen cake layers from sides of pans and remove from pans. Remove and discard wax paper; cool completely.
  7. To make frosting, place butter and cream cheese in a large bowl and beat with a mixer on high speed until fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating at low speed until smooth (do not overbeat). Add vanilla extract and beat well.
  8. Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with one-third of frosting. Top with other cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake.

Four Fantastic Julia Child Recipes

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

On what would have been her 105th birthday, we have selected four fantastic recipes from Julia Child herself that definitely warrant space in your recipe box. Take a look below.

Potato & Leek Soup

Enamel Recipe Box

The smooth and creamy consistency of this soup would make a great first course during a dinner party, or a light lunch at home.

Ratatouille

Julia Child’s ratatouille is hearty and delicious, and tastes great freshly made or the day after!

Pâte a Brioche

Apricot Sherbet

Since it is summer after all, we had to include a cool and tasty dessert. While this sherbert recipe does have a long prep time (it needs to be almost frozen, after all), it is so worth it.
