Pumpkin Cake with Dried Cranberries
Glaze & Garnish
To prepare cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. To prepare cake coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray.Advertisement
Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and allspice in a large bowl. Whisk egg whites, brown sugar, pumpkin, yogurt, oil and orange (or lemon) zest, if using, in a medium bowl until well combined.
Fold the pumpkin mixture and dried cranberries (or raisins) into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until completely blended. Do no over mix. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top.
Bake the cake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.
Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool on the rack.
To prepare glaze: Place confectioners' sugar and zest to taste in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon orange juice and stir until smooth. Add up to 1/2 tablespoon more juice to thin the glaze to desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake. Garnish with julienned zest, if desired.

Tip: Whole-wheat pastry flour is milled from soft wheat. It contains less gluten than regular whole-wheat flour and helps ensure a tender result in delicate baked goods while providing the nutritional benefits of whole grains. Find it at large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
