Coconut Sweet Cream Cake {Recipe} & Walmart Gift Card Giveaway! #CookwithSpreads #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever.


Remember how I told you about my shopping experience at Walmart for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!®?  When I got home and started to put the ingredients away in the fridge, guess what I found already nestled in the egg section?  



I decided to bake a Coconut Sweet Cream Cake because the one my coworker brought to the office was delicious.  However, she told me that it was pretty fattening and took a bit of work.  I decided I would make it a bit healthier using the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® sticks I picked up.




Coconut Sweet Cream Cake
Cake
1 stick butter
1/2 c Crisco
2 c sugar
5 egg yolks
2 c plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 c buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c coconut
1 c chopped pecans
5 egg whites, stiffly beaten



Cream butter and Crisco.  Since I don't have a stand mixer (have been going back and forth about buying one since we don't have an appliance garage), I had to use my hand mixer.  Check out my vid to see how well the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® sticks did.




Add sugar, beat well.  Add egg yolks, beat well.  Add flour and baking soda a little at a time and alternate with buttermilk (I used one cup milk with tablespoon of lemon), beat well.  



Add vanilla, coconut and nuts, mix well with spatula.  I used the rolling pin to "chop" my pecans because it's so much quicker and I don't need to dirty up more items.  



Beat eggs in a cold bowl with cold beaters.  It doesn't take long for it to stiffen up even with a hand mixer.  Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites, 2 tablespoons at a time, mix with spatula (do not over-mix).  Pour into three - 9 inch cake pans (I sprayed with PAM rather than butter/flour) and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Remove and let cool.  


Icing
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c mascarpone cheese, room temp
1/2 stick butter, softened
1 box powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla



Mix cheeses and butter well, add sugar and vanilla.  I took a small video showing how quickly and easily the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® mixes.  Use a butter knife to round out the edges of the cooled cakes and flip pans over gently.  Ice each layer thinly.  Use most of icing on top and sides.  Top finished cake with coconut, if desired.  


The switching up of regular full fat butter with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® spread (70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter) did not make a noticeable change in the flavor and taste of the cake.  It was moist and heavenly.  I added some extra nuts because my father in law loves nuts.  The icing was a hit.  Smooth and creamy without being overtly sweet.  I decided to generously coat the cake the the coconut because it's prettier and also gives you extra delicious coconut to eat! 



I am definitely incorporating I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® spread into my meals as Husband has been doing all along because it is made with a blend of oils rich in Omega-3 ALA which is good for you!  There is no difference in taste, just better for you than regular butter. Pick up a tub and/or sticks of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® soft spreads at your local Walmart today for a healthier you and family!



Cooking your favorite recipes using Unilever buttery spreads is a deliciously smart move. With 0g trans fats per serving, less saturated fat and fewer calories than butter, cholesterol-free spreads are a better option.
