    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Planning to make this for Christmas this year as it includes flavors that truly capture the season. Though the recipe is from a diabetic cookbook, it can be made with or without sugar. The use of yogurt and a parsimonious amount of butter keeps this cake moist without being too heavy. According to the source, prepared with the blend the cake has 165 calories and 26g carbs. With sugar, its 187 calories and 34g carbs. (These nutritionals are with water not orange juice.) Added note: as with most lower fat baked items, take good care not to over bake as the results quickly suffer. Better to go a minute or so less than you think the cake needs to be done.

      Now this was really good! I like how the cranberries and the orange juice and extract go well together. And it was easy to make.

      Excellent. I made it with Splenda and orange juice, and it looked exactly as advertised. I'll most certainly make it again.

      The recipe omits to tell you when to add the cranberries and the orange zest (I stirred them both in at the end just before pouring into the cake pan). In any event, it did not turn out well. It was brown enough after 20 minutes but did not cook through until 40 mins. The inside was doughy and not at all crumbly, cake-like. It would be ok sliced up with custard as a pudding but did not look so good. I will not make it again.
