    • In a large bowl, beat together the butter, salt, sugars, baking powder and vanilla until combined and smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    • In another bowl, whisk together yogurt and milk. Add flour in increments, and mix until combined. Add to butter mixture; stir until combined.To put it all together:
    • Pour half the batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly and pressing into corners. Sprinkle filling over batter. Carefully spread remaining batter over filling. Using a butter knife, gently swirl mixture to make a few marbles. Do not completely swirl the batter and filling. Sprinkle topping over the top.
    • Bake for about 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Another way to tell when the cake is done is the top will be golden without any light spots.
    • Allow cake to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting and serving.Looking for more out-of-the-ordinary Christmas recipes? Try some of our other Non-Traditional Holiday Recipes.
