  • 8.2 ounces all-purpose flour assume 5 1/2 ounces = 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • grated zest from 1 medium navel orange
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • ¾ cup leftover cranberry sauce
  • 1 Tbsp turbanado sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices in a medium bowl.
  • Cream the butter, sugar, and orange zest using a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, about 5 - 6 minutes. Add one egg at a time, fully incorporating the first egg before adding the second.
  • Add the vanilla extract and beat for another minute.
  • Fold one-third of the spiced flour into the batter and 1/3 of the yogurt. Once it's mostly incorporated, repeat with the next one-third, and then the final one-third. Mix only until all the flour and yogurt are mixed into the batter. It will be a pretty thick batter.
  • Spread half of the batter in a loaf pan and spread 1/2 cup of the cranberry sauce on top. Spread the remaining batter on top of the cranberry sauce, and finish with the remaining 1/4 cup of cranberry sauce. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the top.
  • Bake for 75 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly before serving with some vanilla ice cream.
