Ingredients

2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup grand marnier (orange liqueur)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup (6 ounces) orange yogurt
1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar for the glaze
2 tablespoons grand marnier (orange liqueur) for the glaze

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a microwave, heat cranberries and liqueur just until heated through. Set aside.
2
In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to batter alternately with yogurt. Drain cranberries; fold into batter.

Transfer to a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Combine confectioners' sugar and liqueur; drizzle over cake.
