¼ cup butter

¾ cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 ¾ cups whole-wheat flour
or whole wheat pastry, or white whole wheat flour
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
16 ounces cranberry sauce
preferably home made
½ cup pecans
chopped, or walnuts
½ cup powdered sugar
or canola oil
1 ½ tablespoons milk
¼ teaspoon almond extract


Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃). Grease and flour a bunt cake pan.

In a medium bowl, mix together melted butter, olive oil or canola oil, sugar, eggs, yogurt, vanilla and almond extracts until well combined.

In another large mixing bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, white flour, baking powder, soda and salt until well mixed.

Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture, and stir with a wood spatula until just combined.

Pour half of the batter into the prepared cake pan.

Spoon half of the cranberry over the batter.

With a paring knife swirl the cranberry sauce into the batter.

Pour the remaining batter over the swirled mixture.

Then spoon the remaining cranberry sauce, and swirl with the knife again.

Sprinkle the nuts evenly on top.

Bake for about 1 hour, or until a wood skewer inserted into the centre and comes our clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 1 minutes.

Remove the cake from the pan to the wire rack and let cool completely.

Once the cake is cooled, mix together the icing ingredients in a small bowl until smooth and pourable.

Drizzle the glaze over the cake.

Slice into wedges and serve.
