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!!!

Ginger Applesauce Cake

Makes 16 servings
1 serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1/2 cup light butter
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup egg substitute (equal to 2 eggs)
1/4 cup sugar-free maple (pancake) syrup
1 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir flours, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves together in a bowl; set aside.

Cream butter and Splenda together until well combined. Add egg substitute and mix on a low speed to combine and then beat on high for 3 - 4 minutes until it's doubled in volume.

With mixer on medium, slowly pour in maple syrup and mix thoroughly.

With a mixing fork, gently mix in applesauce, alternating with the dry ingredients. When mixture is just starting to come together, sprinkle in the nuts. Continue mixing just until the flour streaks disappear.

Spray a 9-inch baking pan with non-stick spray (I use the kind for baking with flour in it) and pour the mixture in. Smooth the surface. Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


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.*

Loving Life(time)!
