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!!!

Cranberry Upside Down Cake

Update on 1/19......I figured out how to do the pics using Picasa Web Albums. Still wish they'd fix the original problem!

Well, I really wanted to post pics with this recipe, but blogspot is having some issues. This is so tasty.....I didn't want to wait to share this. For those who are local to me, Wally World has cranberries for $1 a bag! Stock up! Freeze them!!!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™


2 TBSP light butter, softened
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup light butter, softened
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon zest
2/3 cup fat-free milk

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Butter a 9-inch round baking pan with 2 TBSP light butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup Splenda granulated; shake pan to coat. Place the cranberries in the pan and spread out evenly. Set aside.


Combine flour, baking powder & salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

Combine 3/4 cup splenda granulated & 1/2 cup butter; beat at medium speed until well combined. Add egg substitute, vanilla and lemon zest; continue beating until well combined. Add flour mixture & milk; beat on low speed until well combined.


Spread batter over cranberries in prepared pan. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.


Place the pan on a cooling rack and let stand for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake and invert onto a plate.


This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.


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)!
