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!!!

Peachy Pecan Loaf

Good afternoon everyone!!!! It's peach season! Yay!!! Bought a basket of peaches this morning just to make this......and I am so glad I did!!!! Had to taste a piece while it was warm......and it was so good! I'm thinking about the next piece.......room temp......with a dollop of FF Cool Whip!!!

Makes 2 Loaves
If you cut a loaf into 16 pieces it's 2 PointsPlus™
If you cut a loaf into 12 pieces it's 3 PointsPlus™
If you cut a loaf into 8 pieces it's 4 PointsPlus™

3 cups all purpose flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup egg substitute
1 1/2 cup Splenda granulated (or a store brand....I use WalMart brand)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chopped, peeled fresh peaches
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325º.

Spray the bottom and about half-way up the sides of two 8x4x2" loaf pans. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a medium mixing bowl, combine egg substitute, applesauce, vanilla and Splenda. Add egg substitute mixture to dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened (don't over-mix). Fold in peaches and nuts. Spoon batter into pans.

Bake at 325º for 55 - 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean.

Cool in the loaf pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Loosen the edges; remove loaves from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.

MY SPIN:  The only thing I would change would be to add more cinnamon <which I did anyway>.

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)!
