Cranberry Pound Cake

This recipe I dazzled my mother-in-law and east coast family with when I first met them... delicious and moist.

2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
8 oz package cream cheese
3 eggs
1 egg white
3 c flour
2 c cranberries or blueberries
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 (8oz) lemon yogurt
2 tsp vanilla extract

1 c powdered sugar
8 tsp lemon juice

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Beat first 3 ingredients, add eggs one at a time.
Combine 2 Tbl flour + 2 Tbl sugar in separate bowl and coat berries.
Combine remaining flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix into eggs and butter mixture alternating with yogurt- beginning and ending with flour. Fold in berries and vanilla.

Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes. remove from pan.

Mix lemon juice and powder sugar. Drizzle over warm cake and serve


  1. Jamison said the cranberry version would be better with caramel sauce too!
