I bet it would be amazing as Peach Swirl Coffeecake - especially with some toasted pecan bits stirred in and a sprinkle of cinnamon/nutmeg/Grains of Paradise and sugar on top ;) Colleen

* Per Meryl's suggestion, I subbed 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt for the 1 cup of sour cream AND 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt for 1/4 cup of the butter. Very moist and tasty!
I think that I will try using only 1 cup total of non-fat Greek yogurt: 3/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt for the sour cream along with subbing 1/4 cup of the butter with Greek yogurt.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature*
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream (sub nonfat plain yogurt)*
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup of fresh cranberry sauce, recommended - (to make the sauce, follow the directions on any package of fresh cranberries), OR one 8-ounce can of whole cranberry sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). (*Decrease the temperature by 25 degrees if using dark pan.). Grease and flour one 9 or 10 inch tube pan.
2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs just until well blended.
3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With mixer running, (lower the mixer speed), add the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream (or yogurt) to the butter mixture until just blended. Do not overmix! Stir in the almond extract and mix only until just combined. Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan. Swirl 1/2 of the cranberry sauce into the batter. Repeat, ending with the batter on top.
4. Bake about 55 minutes (ck at 45 min) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5. Let cool in pan on wire rack about 10 minutes. Cut around edge of the cake to loosen, then turn out and let cool completely on wire rack.

Makes 1 - 9 or 10 inch tube pan (12 servings).
