Recipe by mewmew

Wonderfully rich and moist with a "jam" like center. I used the half white flour and half all purpose like the recipe called and it came out great. I didn't have cranberry juice so I used orange juice. This will be a regular for Thanksgiving from now on. I got the recipe from the December issue of Eating Well magazine.

Directions

  1. Preparing filling:.
  2. Combine cranberries, brown sugar, juice and allspice/pumpkin pie spice, in a small nonreactive saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar is melted. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally until most of the cranberries have burst, 5 to 6 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Coat a 10-cup Bundt or tube pan with cooking spray.
  4. Preparing Cake:.
  5. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Combine yogurt and vanilla in a small bowl.
  6. Beat butter, oil and granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until just incorporated. Scrape down the sides. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the yogurt mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients and beating on low speed just until incorporated after each addition, scraping down the sides as necessary. Fold in apple (or pear) and walnuts.
  7. Spoon half the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the filling on top of the batter leaving a little border of batter on both sides. Top with the remaining batter and smooth the top.
  8. Bake the cake until light brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour (check at 55 min.). Let cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and center, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely for about 2 hours.
  9. Preparing Glaze:.
  10. Place confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon water and stir until smooth. Add more water as needed to achieve a thick glaze consistency. Paint the glaze over with a pastry brush.
