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!!!

Cranapple 'Pancake'

This recipe started out as Apfelpfannkuchen -- German Apple Pancake.....until I got my hands on it!  What a great combination.....apples and cranberries!  I used Macintosh apples for this recipe but you can use whatever kind you want. You can also serve this without the powdered sugar if you want. But I can guarantee you will WANT to make this! I tried a piece while it was warm and it was yummy!!!

Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

3/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fat-free milk
2 TBSP light butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
2 TBSP light butter
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 medium apples, peeled and cored and thinly sliced (@2 cups)
2/3 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Sifted powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 450º.

In medium bowl, whisk egg substitute until frothy. Add flour, milk, 1 TBSP melted butter and salt. Beat until smooth.

Heat 8” round baking pan or oven-proof skillet in oven for 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 TBSP melted butter and swirl to coat pan. Pour batter into hot pan. Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Meanwhile, for the filling, in a medium skillet melt 2 TBSP butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar until combined. Stir in apples slices, cranberries, cinnamon & nutmeg. Cook, uncovered, @5 minutes until cranberries 'pop' and apples are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Remove 'pancake' from oven. Spoon some of the filling onto center, puncturing the top of 'pancake, and then spoon remaining filling onto the center. ** 'Pancake' will collapse as you put the filling on it and it cools. **

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Or not as pictured below.


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. ***
