|Italian or Southern? Either way I am eating it!!|
This was my first attempt at Italian Creme Cake.
It was a request from a friend for her husand's birthday, so I went searching for info. for the perfect Italian Creme Cake recipe, not even knowing what that should really be, but looking at various trusted sources I finally came up with one I trusted.
Interestingly enough I became a little more confused about the whole "Italian" part as to whether this is a cake of Italian origin or not.
This is why I hate names like this, it is so misleading,
I digress back to my "Real Deal Cheesecake" and my refusal to call it "NY style" cheesecake since I am not from NY and never been to NY. (sure I have had cheesecakes that claim to be "NY style" but again...)
So, anyways, I thought now would be the time to share this recipe with Valentine's Day coming up!
Why not celebrate with some layers of goodness?!!!
Very sweet, just right cake with coconut and nuts, layered with yummy cream cheese frosting and stacked high!

The pictures really do not do this cake justice. It is so sweet, yet light. Just melts in your mouth.
It would surely delight anyone to receive this for Valentine's Day!
Funny too that it seems to still be up in the air as to whether it is truly an Italian or Southern origin recipe. I lean more towards a southern recipe.
Don't ask me why, my gut just tells me so, it crops up in so many old southern cookbooks and resembles the hummingbird cake, but then again, America is a melting pot, so it could be Italian!
So, any thoughts, Italian or Southern origin???
Again, either way it is yummy and I am eating it!! over and over!
Until Next Time,
(and don't rack your brain too much over whether it is Italian or Southern, Just enjoy it!)
