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!!!

Lemon Yogurt Bread

Just because!  No special reason except that the original recipe sounded pretty good and pretty easy. It was a day I *needed* Kitchen Therapy. That's it!

Makes 10 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus®

1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp fine salt
¾ cup Splenda granulated
Finely grated zest of 1lemon
½ cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
¼ cup fat-free milk
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ tsp vanilla
2 large egg whites
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a loaf pan with baking spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

In another medium bowl, put the Splenda and lemon zest and rub it together with your fingers or a spoon.

Add the yogurt, milk, applesauce, vanilla, egg whites and egg. Whisk vigorously until well blended.

Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and fold together until just incorporated.

Transfer to the loaf pan. Bake @45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick (or cake tester) inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool on a rack in the pan for 5 minutes and then on the rack out of the pan to cool to room temperature.

MY SPIN: I think if I make this again I would add a little of the juice from the lemon to make it a little moister and 'lemonier'.

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!
