How to Make Italian Cream Sheet Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 15 x 10 x 1" baking pan with cooking spray with flour. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form; set aside. Combine the sour cream and soda; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla or almond extract. Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time. Add the sour cream mixture alternately with the flour.
  3. Stir in walnuts, cherries and coconut. Gently, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake completely before frosting.
  4. Frosting: Beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually, add powdered sugar; beating until well blended. Add vanilla and stir in walnuts. Spread frosting on cooled cake. Refrigerate.
  5. Notes:
    This cake freezes well.

    I had an Angel Food Cake mix which called for
    1 1/3 cups water. The cherry juice was 2/3 cup so I added 2/3 cup of water and a 1 teaspoon of almond extract to the cake mix.
