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!!!

Cran-Blueberry Torte

It was freezing and snowy in my town today so what a better way to make it a bit warmer than to bake. I love tortes! I've already made a cranberry torte so I thought I would change it up a bit. These two berries certainly do compliment each other.  This is an easy recipe that's sure to make your belly happy!

CRAN-BLUEBERRY TORTE
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 3 PointsPlus™


1 1/2 cups cranberries
1 1/2 cups blueberries
3/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup Splenda granulated
1 stick (8 TBSP) light butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 300ยบ.

Spray a 9” glass pie dish. Evenly spread the berries in the bottom of the dish and sprinkle with 3/4 cup Splenda granulated.

 
In a medium bowl, beat together the rest of the ingredients and carefully spread over the berries.



Bake 55 – 60 minutes until the top is golden. Cool on a wire rack.



MY SPIN: This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping. Also, you can add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts into the batter, but that will make it 5 PointsPlus™ a serving.

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. ***

Later!
Loving Life!
