This is a nice, light dessert from Cooking Light magazine. The original called for currants, but I use diced dried cranberries (Craisins). I also serve with a dollop of non-fat, no sugar added lemon yogurt. Cooking time does not include cooling time.

Followed recipe as written. Cake didn't rise as much as in the photos, but I was told it tasted good (I baked this for my sister's luncheon). It was very easy to make and seemed very healthy!

Made for the 2010 French Forum Herb of the month April Rosemary. Excellent. I didn't use low fat yogurt, I drained mine slightly and just used dannon. Worked great. Use cranraisins which worked equally as well. Loved it. Not too much of a sweet fan, so this was perfect. I and my neighbor absolutely loved it. Thx, Kim

Well, I finally got around to making this, and I am sorry I took so long! I had to beg some fresh rosemary from a friend of a friend, until I can get mine going, here. I liked the using of 2 extracts, which did not cancel each other out, but gave a little "hmm" on your tongue. This will be made again, Mike, and thnx for posting. Made for Herb of the Month in the French Forum. April.......Rosemary!
