Grandma's Italian Cream Cake

From Chef Cat Cora (

“My Grandma Alma, was my beacon – the one person in the family to whom all of us were drawn in good times and in bad. She served this cake for anniversaries, funerals, weddings, baptisms, and especially birthdays. When I was growing up, birthdays in my family were a major event. My mom would cook exactly what we wanted for dinner, and my Grandma Alma, already knowing the answer, would ask us what kind of cake we wanted. We never hesitated. “Grandma, your Italian cream cake!” Off she’d go to make a moist, silky cake, with a frosting so luscious and creamy that you couldn’t keep your fingers away from it no matter how hard you tried." – Cat Cora
