My cake mix calls for 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and I am out of it. Can I use Blue Bonnet 53% vegetable oil spread in the place of the oil? Thanks!

I have heard that you can. However, I would be reluctant to do so because rather than using 100% veg oil, you would be substituting a product that has only 53% veg oil. Most likely your end product would be drier.

Also, most veg oil speads contain salt, which could affect the flavor. And most contain water that could affect the texture. Depending on the specific product, various other ingredients may be present that could cause other issues.
