Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Applesauce AND Spiced Applesauce bread

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 0 PointsPlus™

6 cups apples; peeled, cored & chopped
3/4 cup water
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup Splenda granulated

In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, combine apples, cinnamon, cloves and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer @10 minutes. Stir in Splenda; simmer @5 more minutes.

Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving WITHOUT Nuts = 4 PointsPlus™
1 Serving WITH Nuts = 5 PointsPlus™

1 1/2 cups applesauce
3/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
3 TBSP fat-free milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional....see PointsPlus™ above)

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray 9x5" loaf pan with Pam for baking.

In a large bowl, combine applesauce, Splenda, oil, egg substitute and milk; beat well. Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt; stir until smooth. Fold in pecans if desired. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

MY SPIN: The only thing I changed was I added more cinnamon.....but I love cinnamon!!! And if you don't use the applesauce recipe above and use unsweetened applesauce in the bread recipe, use 1 cup of the Splenda granulated.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for these recipes were calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of these recipes by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
