Italian Creme Cake

Here is my Italian Creme Cake recipe. It's originally based on my husband's aunts cake, but I don't do layers or shortening.  Mine's a little different from most, but my family loves it and I hope yours does too.

Ingredients for cake: 1 cup butter
5 egg yolks
5 egg whites
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 cups white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup almonds or pecans

1 cup coconut
1 buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350Ā°F and grease a 9x13 cake pan.

Separate the eggs. Beat the whites until stiff and set aside.

Cream the egg yolks, butter and sugar and set aside.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, nuts and coconut.

In another separate bowl add the vanilla to the buttermilk.

Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the milk ingredients into the egg/butter/sugar mixture.

Last, fold in egg whites.

Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes.

Rum Frosting
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
 2 ozs cream cheese
 2 tsp of rum extract (optional!)
 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all the ingredients and spread over cooled cake.
