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!!!

Cranberry Torte

Good evening everyone!!! What does one do on a VERY rainy, dreary day? Bake, of course!!! Kitchen Therapy!!! Ok....I had a bag of cranberries I needed to use. This recipe would remind you of the Cranberry Cake I sent out a while ago, but I can assure you......it's better!!! Make this before cranberries are out of season!!!

CRANBERRY TORTE
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving WITH nuts = 5 PointsPlus™
1 Serving WITHOUT nuts = 3 PointsPlus™


1 bag (12 oz) fresh cranberries, washed/rinsed
1 3/4 cups Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 stick (8 TBSP) light butter, melted
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Spray a pie plate/pan with butter flavored spray. Put cranberries in pie plate/pan. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of the Splenda over the cranberries.

In medium bowl, beat egg substitute and remaining 1 cup of Splenda. Add butter, flour, salt (& walnuts). Gently spread batter over cranberries.

Bake at 300º for 70 minutes OR 325º for 60 minutes.

Cool on rack. Serve with Fat-Free Cool Whip.

MY SPIN: I did use the nuts.....I think it's worth the extra PointsPlus™. And I did the 325º for 60 minutes. And I do have a set of measuring spoons that has a 'pinch'!

This is so simple and so good! Go make it!!!!

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

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
