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!!!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Kudos to Cathy for this awesome recipe!!!

This recipe is a huge surprise! No eggs......in a cake??? Yup yup yup!!! It's not only delicious but simple to make. Try it......you'll love it! Seriously!

VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE
Makes 12 Pieces
1 Piece - 3 PointsPlus™

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
5 TBSP unsweetened baking cocoa
2 cups Splenda granulated
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP white vinegar
2 cups water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a "well" by pushing the ingredients to the sides of the bowl. Add liquids into the well and mix together. Pour batter into a 9x13 or two 9" circle pans lightly sprayed with non-stick spray*. Bake for 30 minutes.

*I use the spray for baking with flour in it.

I topped this with Cool Whip Free, but you really don't need any topping. Also, I made it in the 9x13 baking pan and can easily get more than 12 pieces.

Again.....thanx Cathy!!!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ values 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)!
