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!!!

Gingerbread Cupcakes

GINGERBREAD CUPCAKES
Makes 21 cupcakes
1 cupcake = 3 PointsPlus™


2/3 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups reduced-fat whipped topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat the Splenda, oil and egg substitute until well blended. Add applesauce and molasses; mix well.

In a small bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and salt; gradually beat into applesauce mixture until blended.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for @20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Optional: just before serving, top each cupcake with 1 TBSP whipped topping.

PS – Thinking I should change the name of these to Molasses Cupcakes!

Enjoy!

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)!
