Heavenly cakes are a hallmark of dessert time, and this lightened-up treat is no exception. “My neighbor made the scrumptious cake and gave me the recipe,” shares Vernelle Lazzarini of Upland, California. This made-over version of the original is as easy on the waistline as it is the taste buds.

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted, divided

Directions

Coat three 9-in. round baking pans with cooking spray and dust with flour; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, eggs, egg whites, applesauce and pudding mix. Beat on medium speed for 4 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Stir in coconut and walnuts.
Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 23-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, milk and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut.
Place bottom cake layer on a serving plate; spread with 2/3 cup frosting. Repeat layers. Top with remaining layer and frosting; sprinkle with remaining coconut. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 16 servings.

"This cake is delicious, nobody could tell it was a lighter version! I only had 2 cake pans the same size, so I sliced the cakes in half to make 4 layers, and just made a little extra frosting. It came out beautiful, and tasted great!"

"I've made this a number of times. If you really like coconut, try using coconut cake, and I prefer the white over the yellow cake mix. I omit walnuts because my family doesn't care for them, but it's delicious without them. Because I don't have three pans the same size, my cake is only a double-layer, but it works just fine. This is a very easy recipe and I love the substitutions that make it more healthful. HINT: Be sure to toast, the coconut. That makes ALL the difference!"
