Cranberry Yogurt Cake

Nothing as therapeutic as baking.  Whenever I had a stressful week, I look forward to a bake out weekend.  I feel a lot better after thinking of nothing but what to bake and how to bake them. 

Last week was a burnt out week for me at work and to counter that stress I ended up baking semolina shortbread, fruit cake and this cranberry yogurt cake. 

Though in the past I have tried out many different types of cakes but none leave me yearning for more as much as this cake.   I have baked this cake twice within the same week, this shows how much I love this cake.

For those of you out there who are keen to try, here is the recipe.

2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
150g butter
200g castor sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

1.  Cream butter, sugar and vanilla essence till light and fluffy.
2.  Add in eggs, 1 at a time and beat well after each addition.
3.  Fold in yogurt, followed by sifted plain flour and baking powder.
4.  Then stir in chopped cranberries.
5.  Pour mixture into a bundt pan and bake in oven pre-heated to 180C for 30 to 35 minutes.

Looks great, I love yogurt cake but haven't made them in a while as I hardly buy yogurt these days.
