Italian Cream Cheese Cake Recipe

Ingredients
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening...
2 cups sugar
5 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1-1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:

2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup butter, softened
6 cups confectioners' sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Beat just until combined. Stir in coconut and pecans.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold a fourth of the egg whites into batter, then fold in remaining whites. Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Stir in pecans. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 12 servings.

my sister made one last year for a cake auction at her church to benefit ret college students
it sold for 500.00

we've been making it that way for a very long time  maybe 40+ yrs
it's re-run every few yrs and it's always good
around 30 yrs ago I made a very large one (3 9X13) layers for a b-day at work   and he gave a piece to the mgr-chef of the cafeteria at the courthouse      and I had to give him my recipe
he made it every Thursday   and if you weren't there before noon you didn't get any
mine was always free and saved for me

With the oven I have now I can fit 3 9 inch pans in but I still rotate them and turn about 1/2 way through baking just like with a cookie sheet.

Nellie I am right there with you in using some or most brown sugar.  I think it has much more flavor and adds moistness.
