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!!!

Pumpkin Pound Bundt Cake

It's football season! It's Labor Day weekend! It's *always* pumpkin season at my house! The original recipe called for a mere cup of pumpkin puree......I thought the full can would make this so much moister....and I was right! While it was baking, my husband said it smelled good -- that's a good sign! This morning he had a piece with his coffee and said it was good -- that's a better sign! This is so incredibly easy to make.....you gotta try it!!

Makes 16 Pieces

1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist yellow cake mix
4 eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
¼ cup water
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray a bundt pan; set aside.

Don't forget to spray in your dishwasher to prevent overspray mess on your countertop!
Put all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix until well combined.

Pour into the sprayed bundt pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Transfer to cake plate.

MY SPIN: Of course, I used a heaping ½ tsp of cinnamon. This can be served 'as is' or with some whipped topping or you could make a cream cheese icing/drizzle.

"As is"

With whipped topping
