CRANBERRIED LEMON YOGURT BREAD

I always have a huge bag of craisins in the house...I mean the large bag from Costco.  I put them on my salads, and flavor lots of other dishes with them.  I did recently get a noticeably less fresh bag and after working my way through about 3/4 of the bag, I decided the rest would make for a good baked item.
So I went straight to the source for a recipe.  This is from the people from Ocean Spray....and it's a truly yummy bread!  The texture is great and it's got a combination of tangy lemon and cranberry in every bite.

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup lowfat plain yogurt
2 eggs 
¼ cup lemon juice
1 heaping cup of craisins

Glaze:
½ cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.  

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.  Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar in a medium mixing bowl, until light and fluffy.  Add yogurt, eggs and lemon juice; mix well.   Stir in cranberries.  Add to dry ingredients.  Stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

Bake for approximately 50 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool.  In the meantime, prepare the glaze.  Once the loaf is cool, drizzle over the top of the loaf.

Enjoy!
