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!!!

Apple Cakey Stuff

Oh thank goodness!!! Fall is in the air.  Pumpkins are in season....and so are apples!!!  I am so lucky to have a fabulous apple orchard just up the mountain. My excursion to find some joy took me first to the apple orchard then across the highway to the veggie place (thinking they'd have peaches) and then back across the highway to a little roadside veggie stand. The young lady working there, Tonya, had THE prettiest peaches! She sliced one open and I tasted it and it was so good. Oh wait! This is an apple recipe! I guess I need to hurry up and eat this apple stuff and/or share it so I can get working on something peachy! LOL   This is truly a delicious apple recipe.....not real cakey and I didn't even have to add more cinnamon. 

Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus®

½ cup fat-free egg substitute
1 ¾ cups Splenda granulated
2 heaping tsp cinnamon
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
6 medium apples, cored/peeled/sliced
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly spray a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the egg substitute, Splenda, cinnamon and applesauce.

Add the sliced apples making sure they get well coated.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Add this to the apple mixture using a heavy spoon, being sure that all the flour mixture is absorbed by the apple mixture.

Using a spatula, scrape into the 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Spread evenly.

Bake for 55 minutes.

This can be served warm or at room temperature. You can top it with fat-free whipped topping or a good vanilla bean ice cream. If you use ice cream, you'll have to figure out 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!
