This recipe may be cheating a little because it involves a boxed cake mix but I promise after you bake this cake that will not matter. This is easily my favorite cake I have ever made (and I have baked some great ones like this Chocolate Fudge Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Ganache). I have baked this Easy Italian Cream Cake so many times including several times to give away as gifts.
Try this cake soon and let me know what you think.
1 (16.25-ounce) package white cake mix
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup coconut flakes
2/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
