This healthy Cranberry-Orange pound cake uses Greek Yogurt to keep the calories low! It is starting to get chilly outside so enjoy this warming taste of fall!

Ingredients

  • 2 ¾ cups (330g) white whole wheat flour or gluten-free* flour (measured like this)
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp (15g) freshly grated orange zest (about 2 extra large)
  • 1 tbsp (14g) unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) vanilla crème stevia
  • ¾ cup (180g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup (180mL) freshly squeezed orange juice (about 1 extra large)
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp (150mL) nonfat milk
  • 1 ½ cups (165g) fresh whole cranberries, diced

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line a 9x5” loaf pan with foil. Lightly coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To prepare the cake, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, egg whites, vanilla extract, and stevia.
  3. Stir in the Greek yogurt, mixing until no large lumps remain.
  4. Stir in the orange juice and 2 tablespoons of milk. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and remaining milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, and stirring just until incorporated. (For best results, add the flour mixture in 3 equal parts.) Gently fold in the cranberries.
  5. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes or until the top feels firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before lifting out the cake by the foil and transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
