Cranberry Pecan Pound Cake with Glaze

This Cranberry Pecan Pound Cake is the perfect dessert for fall or winter. It is so easy to make in a bundt pan, just like this Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake. It is deliciously sweet and topped with a sugar glaze and cranberries and pecans. The deep red cranberries with the white glaze make this cake beautiful enough to serve at the Thanksgiving Day dinner table. Serve with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.

How to Make Cranberry Pecan Pound Cake

In another bowl, mix together the 2 ¼ cup all purpose flour and baking powder. Set aside.

Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Add in the vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add in the flour mixture, mixing until well combined. Stir in the Greek yogurt. Then gently stir in the pecans and cranberries.

Evenly spread the batter into your bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes while still in the pan, then turn the cake onto a cooling rack so the flat side is down.

Once completely cooled, serve and eat or you can garnish the top with the glaze and leftover pecans and cranberries.

For the Glaze:

In medium bowl, combine all ingredients until smooth, adding with 3 tablespoons milk or half and half to start, then adding more for desired glaze consistency.

I recommend making the glaze as soon as you plan on using it, as it will harden the longer it sits and cools.
