This Cranberry Orange Yogurt Loaf is a great recipe for breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea, or as a dessert. The yogurt and orange glaze in this recipe keeps the loaf moist and keeps the loaf from crumbling.

    This recipe was created by Laura Davis of

    Tide and Thyme.


  • 1/2 Cup Plain or Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1 tsp Orange Extract
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
