Cranberry Ribbon Cake
2 cups flour
1 cup plain yogurt, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 dash salt
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour (or use a baking spray) 1 bundt or tube pan.
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, vanilla and sugar until well mixed.
Slowly add in yogurt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and a dash of salt.
Slowly incorporate into the yogurt batter.
Mix thoroughly. It might not look like you have enough batter to fill the pan, but you do.
It is not a super-tall cake, but it will rise and have a great texture, I promise.
Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan.
Smooth with the back of a spatula.
Carefully spoon the cranberry sauce to form a ring around the middle of the pan, without touching the middle or sides.
Top with the remaining batter and smooth with the back of a spatula.
Bake 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan about 5 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack. Slice and eat.
