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!!!

Dump-In Pumpkin Cake

Good morning everyone!!! I found this awesome recipe and it was originally @11 or 12 PointsPlus™ a serving! Ouch!! So I 'tweaked' it down to 6 PointsPlus™ and made it last Thursday.....brought it to my Friday meeting and only had 2 'takers' because of the high points. It was delicious at 6 P+, but needed to 'tweak' it just a bit more........and so I did! It's now down to 4 P+ a serving.....still kind of high for the size of the serving, but I can assure you it's worth it.....especially if you like pumpkin. With a dollop of fat-free Cool Whip might be a nice alternative to pumpkin pie on your Thanksgiving table!!

DUMP-IN PUMPKIN CAKE
Makes 15 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

1 (16 oz.) box Pillsbury Moist Supreme Sugar Free Classic Yellow Cake Mix
1 (15 oz.) can PLUS 1 cup pumpkin (NOT pie filling)
1 (12 oz.) can fat-free evaporated milk
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup Splenda granulated
1 TBSP cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
@30 sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
Preheat oven to 350º. Spray 13x9" baking dish with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, egg substitute, Splenda and spices until well blended. Spread in baking dish.
Sprinkle cake mix over the batter. Spray with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.
Bake 50 minutes. Cool on a rack.

MY SPIN: I actually preferred this recipe using 3/4 cups of melted light butter instead of the spray, but it added PointsPlus™.
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)!
