If you’ve never had or made an Italian cream cake, you might want to check out the recipe over on SheSaved. Lots of pecans and coconut make this classic cake a popular dessert choice!
Top with a decadent cream cheese frosting and more coconut and pecans to complete the dessert. You can also serve it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
This is such a great dessert idea for the holidays especially for Christmas or New Year’s Day. Not only does it taste impressive, but it pairs so well with a hot cup of coffee and it’s a nice alternative to all the cookies this time of year!
Never had this cake before? It’s also the perfect ending to any Italian meal – spaghetti, lasagna, chicken parmesan. We like to have it several times during the year, but it’s such a great dessert to have on hand for company during the holidays.
While it is sweet, the chopped pecans help balance it out and provide just a bit of crunch for texture and added flavor.
