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!!!

Super Easy Pumpkin Cake

Makes 12 Servings = 4 PointsPlus™
Makes 16 Servings = 3 PointsPlus™

3 cups HeartSmart Bisquick baking mix
1 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend, packed
1/4 cup light butter
1 cup fat-free egg substitute
2 cups pumpkin
1/4 cup fat-free skim milk
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a Bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray (I use the baking kind with flour in the spray).

Put all the ingredients in a large bowl. Beat on low @30 seconds. Beat on medium @3 minutes.

Spread batter in the Bundt pan. Bake @50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool 10 minutes in the pan on a cooling rack. Remove from pan and cool completely.

MY SPIN: I always put more cinnamon in a recipe because I love cinnamon. I think it also needs a little more nutmeg.....so when I make this again I'll use 1/2 tsp instead of 1/4. Also, this recipe originally called for a 'drizzle' consisting of butter and LOTS of powdered sugar.....so I didn't include it. This cake is good just the way it is, but you can always serve it with a dollop of Fat-Free Cool Whip (2 TBSP won't add any 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.*
Loving Life(time)!
