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!!!

Individual Peach Upside-Down Cake

Oh this is good!!! And was much needed today! My day started with a dog barking for over an hour.....glad I was already awake, but broke that lovely morning silence. Then I made a bowl of cereal and the milk was sour, even tho it wasn't past the expiration date. And then I found a HUGE ugly spider that everyone is telling me is a good spider.....NOT in my book!!!  So Kitchen Therapy today was a MUST!!!  And I still have a few peaches left! Might just slice & freeze them.  This is a really nice little treat!! Try it!!!

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

3 TBSP light butter, divided
4 TBSP light brown sugar
2 medium peaches, peeled
2 tsp chopped crystalized ginger
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk, room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Place 1/2 TBSP butter in the bottom of 4 (6 oz) ramekins. Sprinkle 1 TBSP light brown sugar in each of the ramekins. Cut each peach in half, slice, and place in the bottom of each ramekin. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp chopped ginger on top of the peaches. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the splenda, buttermilk, vanilla extract and the remaining 1TBSP of butter after you melt it.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Pour over the peaches in the ramekins.

Place on the middle rack of the oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes.

Place on a rack and cook for at least 5 minutes.

Run a knife carefully around the edge of each ramekin and turn upside down onto a serving plate.

This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping (which wouldn't add any PointsPlus™ value) or with a small scoop of really good vanilla bean ice cream (but you'd have to adjust the PointsPlus™ value).

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!
