Ingredients

For the loaf

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 ounces white chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 6 oz plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cranberries (fresh or thawed)

For the streusel

  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the white chocolate drizzle

  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt).
  3. In a standing mixer, mix together the brown sugar, white chocolate, vegetable oil, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and eggs. Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing until just combined.
  4. Gently fold the cranberries into the batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and set aside.
  5. Mix together the streusel ingredients until fully combined. Using your hands, sprinkle the streusel evenly over the loaf, covering it entirely with streusel.
  6. Bake the loaf for 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf. If your streusel begins to get golden before the first 30 minutes of cooking, gently cover the top of the loaf with tin foil. This will prevent excess browning.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes, then drizzle with melted white chocolate. Cut into pieces and serve!*

Notes

*Make sure you have people around you to eat the loaf, because otherwise you may end up eating the entire thing yourself…
