Pour into loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool slightly before removing from pan.


Raspberry Glaze:

* While cake is cooling, pour raspberry marmalade into small sauce pan. Mix over low heat until melted. Pour in yogurt, turn off heat. Mix yogurt and marmalade together. Invert cake onto cake platter, drizzle glaze over cake and serve while warm. Or cold. Or room temperature. It's delicious either way.
