Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large mixing bowl, combine first 9 ingredients. Mix in cranberries and pecans.
In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt, honey, eggs and oil. Whisk thoroughly. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until well combined. Spray a 5×9-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place batter into loaf pan and bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 15 minutes in pan. Remove and cool on wire rack.
