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!!!

Ginger Berry Cake

Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup Splenda granulated
3 TBSP sorghum (or molasses)
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries
1 cup fat-free buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray 11 x 8 inch baking dish; set aside.

Don't forget to spray in the dishwasher lid!
In a large bowl, mix together the applesauce, Splenda and sorghum (molasses) until well blended. Beat in egg substitute.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, baking soda and salt. Remove 2 TBSP of this and toss with the blueberries to coat.

 Stir remaining dry ingredients into applesauce mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing after each addition.

Carefully fold in the blueberries.

Pour into the baking dish. Bake 35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

MY SPIN: I think this would be good using cranberries instead of the blueberries.

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)!
